I met my photographer out for my bridal portrait today. This is NOT my real dress, shoes, or veil. It was a rainy gross day in St. Louis. And my mom followed along snagging shots on my digital Canon. She got a few really good shots and I went to work trying to cover up dress imperfections (some major ones!) with Photoshop and playing with it.
Because I share it all here….here they are! It’s really weird Photoshopping yourself! haha.
Oh, and those puppies came from some random lady walking her dogs and we shouted out if we could borrow them. My FI is addicted to rottweilers. Sooo cute.

LoL, no, i decided I didn’t want to wear my real dress and bought a cheap one from China. I figured I could get cooler shots if i wasn”t afraid of a little dirt (no puppies would be allowed on me!) and I bought the shoes for my bachelorette dress off ebay and the veil I whipped up myself with some leftover tulle because i was scared to bring my real one out. My photo said if the wind caught it it could end up in the big nasty swamp lake!
I have TONS of pics of my hair, but my mom has them on her camera which she can’t upload. Shoot me a PM with your email and I’ll send you more of my bridal pics where you can see my hair clearly. It only took her 45 minutes to put up, too. I was really surprsied!

No i’m not editing my own pictures. I can, I just don’t want to, haha. But i like knowing that i can tweak them to my little heart’s desire for shutterly albums down the road. I love playing with photoshop.

Girl you got skillz … The pictures came out awesome. I am in love with the puppy picture though and maybe it is because I see my poochie in their faces… So cute!
