Picture the most beautiful summer’s night. The sun is setting, the air is warm, and twinkly lights surround you. Also add in a bride and her beautiful bouquet in the old school, charming atmosphere that is downtown Elkhorn with just the right amount of red lipstick “pop”, and it was as if all the stars aligned to bring us the most dreamy evening of all time.

It may have been a very windy Nebraska night in late March, but Cierra and I made it work in our favor, and the dress she wore by Hannah Caroline Couture showed off her gorgeous curves like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Being engaged herself, Cierra has worn a variety of different bridal gowns, but even she admitted that this one is very much like the one she picked out for her own wedding day that is coming up in July!

Cierra, this session was like a breath of fresh air! I had no idea how much I needed the creativity outlet and the inspiration that stemmed from this shoot after the strain of moving and starting renovations in my own personal life. When I see these images, I see a gorgeous lady with the world at her fingertips with the most kindest, welcoming heart I’ve ever seen. You were so easy to give direction to, and were so open to any of the crazy ideas that stemmed forth from my mind. Not only am I lucky to have met you, but I am so lucky to now call you a friend!

….And you know what I think is even crazier?!

That we met on Facebook Marketplace! #destiny #kindredspirits

Good luck with your modeling career and your upcoming wedding! I hope that whenever you look at these pictures you see what I see: a beautiful young woman, who knows who she is and has the most amazing confidence and sense of humor!
