Amy's Bridals - with a twist

Do you remember this girl? You've seen pics of her several times before.

Amy is a memorable girl. She's bubbly and funny, yet to hear her really speak about life and such, you'd think she was 42, not half that age. We met when I was going to be her wedding photographer. However, before the wedding could happen, they decided to call it off. I'm going to be honest, I was secretly relieved.... I knew it wasn't right and I think they finally figured it out too.

We stayed in touch mostly on facebook. I followed along as she went to school to be a massage therapist, moved 45 miles from home, and graduated with the best grades they'd seen in a VERY long time. Go Amy.

However, imagine my surprise when her status changed from single to married!!
My response was:
"Wait... WHAT?"


Dear sweet Amy ran off and eloped! (smart girl! lol).

In the meantime, I was contacted by the local TV station and asked if I wanted to participate in an advertising program. It's basically a 5 minute spot, more like an interview. I needed to find someone to shoot some bridals or couple portraits with and I thought of the perfect lady for that!

Two nights ago, we shot my very first commercial ever! I was so nervous as I don't like to be on camera... hence... I'm a photographer.. not a model. Amy and her mom came, and we started shooting before they got there - which they were 40 min late - who gets lost in Maryville.. even when I gave directions!?

Amy and her mom stayed the whole time, even while I was getting interviewed, and made me feel so much more at ease! Thank you girls!

Below, are the photos that we took at this shoot. I'm going for a new type of look. More fun, more "me", so you'll see some different types of photos in this set.













Thank you Amy.. thank you Kathy! I hope you love and enjoy these photos, and the commercial! Which, btw, will be airing next week on KQ2 out of St. Joseph. I'll post a link here, if I can tolerate seeing myself on tv.

OM Gosh! The ones with the teddybear....ummmm they just made me bawl! Beautiful and sentimental but fun just the same. You have a lot of talent, lady! Good luck with the commercial.

Wait but I don't understand! Did she elope with the same guy you said you didn't think she belonged with?!?!? Or a different guy?

Love the pictures, especially the one where she's looking up. And the red phone is so neat!
