Many of my clients seek to have something completely unique and personal created for them as we plan their engagement, bridal and wedding day portraits. Laura Dougan was definitely looking for something that represented her style and personality in her bridal portraits. Laura is a teacher, and she loves history and vintage trains and cars. She told me about The Texas Transportation Museum, so I went to take a look. I of course brought my 3 year-old son to ride the train on a hot, Sunday afternoon. As I walked around the area I was instantly inspired. My family thought I was nuts. But I picked out several key areas to shoot in and we planned a date for Laura's bridal photoshoot.
Dress by: The Bridal Galleria of Texas
Bouquet by Pretty Petals Floral Boutique
Hair and Makeup by Madame Makeup
Special thanks to Maid of Honor Dora Martinez, and Mom Elva Dougan for assisting the bride on this hot summer morning. Also, thank you so much to Marie and the crew at The Texas Transportation Museum for being so accommodating. The clouds were quite dramatic on the morning of the shoot, as a storm was moving in.
Next to the train tracks, and behind the children's train area is a bridge shaded by trees.
This was the print Laura chose to have featured on canvas at her Gardens At Old Town Helotes Wedding.
The vintage interiors of the train were fun to photograph as well, offering vignettes to feature our gorgeous bride.
It was a successful shoot, offering Laura many options for her featured bridal portraits.
