Photography Session

Since each Brooks Ann Camper Bridal Couture dress is one-of-a-kind and the bride keeps it as an heirloom, it is often impossible to show clients a variety of actual garments.  Most of the time the potential client must view my past work via photographs. I am not a photographer.  Though I’d love nothing more than to have fantastic shots of the bride in the dress on her wedding day, I’ve learned not to put all my eggs in the one basket of the hired ‘wedding photographer’ (unless I know their work).

Leah’s wedding is in upstate New York and I knew nothing of her photographer, except that maybe she was a family friend.  Nervous?  You bet!  I just couldn’t bet my business on the hopes that a stranger’s photos would be as fantastic as this dress.

Since Leah’s dress is so special, and I am so proud to show it off, I decided that I’d get my good friend and fantastic catalog photographer, Kent Corley, to do a pre-wedding still photo shoot, just in case.

He did an absolutely fantastic job!  I couldn’t be happier with the results.  You can view the final and edited photo session on Leah’s website by clicking here.
