Bridal Fashion, Gowns by Jaime Elyse Stephens

This weekend I was pleased to photograph a great model and all around cool person in some NEW gowns!  I met Justine at a shootout with an Alice in Wonderland theme and we have stayed in touch, collaborating on some shoots.  We were able to pull this together in kinda shot order thanks to creative minds and flexible personalities :)  I originally wanted to shoot at the OC Performing Arts Center but that just was not in the cards... I could not afford the $5000 shoot fee, $2000, maybe ...  kidding.  So we opted to go to the Mission Inn in Riverside.  I have shot INSIDE the Inn before but never around it and I have to say that I think I found my favorite spot to shoot in Riverside County!  There were arches, doors, brick, trees, flowers, lights, windows and water! I want to thank Elizabeth Luna for joining us and originally diving me the idea of the location.  Also, I am thankful to Jaime Elyse Stephens for letting me photograph some of her more recent work - BEAUTIFUL stuff!!!  Ladera Flower Shoppe provided the bouquet - Thanks Terry!  And also big thanks go to Jessica Hale for the wonderful work on hair and makeup.  P.S. - Thanks for rocking this shoot with me Justine!

Now, for the pics!
