Brian and Echo

The bride’s signature color is a vibrant shade of green. She loves it. Almost to the point of obsession. And that led her to some bold choices for her wedding including a swatch of iridescent green silk at the base of the right side of her dress. A woman who is that confident is always going to be a joy to photograph.
Update: I have done a Bride and Dress session with Echo. To see the new images go to:
