Jheri's Bridals at Nottoway Plantation

I was in full swoon mode as soon as I walked up and saw Jheri's in her amazing dress by Hayley Paige.  It was a perfect match for her classic, elegant look and for the beautiful Nottoway plantation where we shot.  Jheri's step father was an architect on the restoration of the historic plantation, so Nottoway is very close to her and her family's heart. 

For those of you who aren't familiar with Nottoway, it is a GORGEOUS plantation home on the Mississippi River in Southern Louisiana.  It has a uber famous all white room that has been photographed a zillion times.  Fun fact!: did you know that the room was made all white by the original owner because he felt that white showed off all of the womens' beautiful ball gowns the best? Jheri's step father told me that and I thought it was just the coolest thing. Like super cool. Oh the days of ball room gowns!

Bridal sessions are some of my favorite photos to make because it gives my bride a time to be in front of my camera before the big day which is perfect to get rid of those in-front-of-the-camera-nerves, and it gives us a chance to hang out with each other and get to know one another a little better. Jheri, in particular, was totally amazing because every idea I had she was totally game for! That's always so exciting to have a bride down for anything - it really let's me get creative and produce some of my best work.
