Black Wedding Dress


Six months later I can finally share these images taken by the one and only Jasmine Star back in May at the Saguaro Hotel I blogged about in this post.  I’m only going to share the photos of Mr. Wonderful and me modeling and you can see the rest of the concept when Jasmine blogs about it.

Two things you should know – (1) Mr. Wonderful was a good sport as he was completely uncomfortable with the way his hair was slicked back – they were going for a Mad Men look for us. As soon as Jasmine took the last shot, Benjamin messed up his hair immediately!  (2) The outfits were switched on us last minute.  There was another couple modeling a concept that day and the last minute change made for some uncomfortable sizing but it all worked out.  Oh, and let’s make that (3) Jasmine is just as fun and sweet as you imagine her to be.  We have several mutual friends in the business and I really don’t know why it took so long for us to finally connect.

Onto the pictures!  Thanks to my girlfriend Stephanie, also a very talented photographer, for setting this up!

This shot was completely Benjamin’s idea – LOL.  He was pretty excited about this.
