When I first started photographing weddings I found Renegade Bridal and knew right away that we were meant to be friends. And to work together!! Renegade’s mission is to make wedding gowns for brides who want a gown that’s out of the ordinary. Their ideal client are women who know and love who they are and want to walk down the aisle in a statement that embodies their entire, amazing personality, heritage, and celebration style. In a lot of ways, our ideal clients overlapped!
When Natalie contacted me she had a new line of wedding gowns she wanted to premier. I mean, she had just received this amazing lace romper she had designed and it paired so well with her current skirts. The line the romper and skirts are part of is called Paper Dolls. This line of detachable tops and bottoms is a way for brides to have a one skirt for the ceremony and a different one for the reception. That way, when the reception hits, brides don’t have to be in a constricting or heavy skirt and can be in something lighter or shorter to dance in. If you have followed my Facebook business page this fall, you will see that all of my fall brides changed into a different dress for the reception! All of them!!!
So with the new pieces in, we headed to the streets of Houston to capture them! Natalie, the owner of Renegade, wanted a specific look to the images, with Houston downtown being a strong factor in the photos. She wanted pieces of local flavor mixed with models who could show off the versatility and uniqueness of her new dress line.
When Natalie got the images from me she said she cried! Here is some of what she posted on my Facebook business page:
After a very long day, I was finally able to sit down and look through the images from our shoot with Christine. I wasn’t prepared for my own reaction. With my jaw agape, I began tearing happy tears that turned into joyful chuckles. I have waited years to feel this way about my brand photography. I should have entrusted it to her the moment I met her. I have adored her wedding photography for years and understood she had the ability to listen and understand her clients’ needs on a deep level.
