Carina’s Bridal session was at a Bentonville Arkansas wedding venue, The Ballroom at I street, and it was absolutely fantastic! This is the location where Carina and her husband would get married, so it’s fun to be able to take advantage of the location and get all sorts of shots that you know you won’t be able to get on the wedding day. It’s so nice to get to work with a venue that’s so relaxed and lets you work with your own schedule!
Carina is beautiful and she was one of the sweetest people ever! Like most people, she was shy and reserved at the start of her bridal session, but by the end she was so confident! I didn’t have to tell her what to do or how to pose. She was self posing and just being herself, which creates a lot of room for candid moments and some great shots! She made this photoshoot so much fun!
And, she even brought the sample bouquet Pigmint Florals made for her wedding, so she was able to get photos with a smaller version of her wedding day bouquet. I always love working with Pigmint Florals. They’re amazing! Her Bouquet was mostly whites with a pop of cream. It was so simple and elegant, I loved it so much!
Her dress was from Tesori and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dress like this before. There were all these different layers and it was so detailed. It was such a fun dress, and she looked amazing in it! She also brought with her a super long veil. Veils like this always add motion and beauty to photos, because there is so much you can do with it!
We took lots of great shots. Probably some of my favorites were at the bar in the Ballroom. There were all these chandeliers in the background of the Bentonville Arkansas wedding venue, and they were so high end and classy! I really loved her photos here.
Carina’s photos turned out so pretty, and it was one of my favorites for sure. Just writing this is a blast reminiscing about the day and how much fun it was!
Carina, thank you for a great time and wonderful session!
