A Day After Session is a fantastic way to add variety to your wedding photos.  You can wear your dress again and have photos done in a completely different location, with a different feel.  I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph Cortney’s 1962 wedding gown again!  Craig is a deputy sheriff, so of course we shot with a vintage police car.  Kevin and Vicki Vierra lent us their amazing 1942 car, and we had a blast shooting with it.  Enjoy my favorites from the day!

Hair, makeup, and flowers: Dawn Kelly
Gown: Sierra Bridal, Sonora, California

I love shooting instant film and bleaching the negatives.  It lent a great, vintage look to this already vintage photography session.

I made Corntey bouquet with sunflowers to lend more nostalgia to her look.

Cortney’s 60’s mod makeup was flawless.  She was channeling Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy.

I took this photo with my 1940s CiroFlex camera, and I love it, including the dust.  Film is all about imperfections.

Craig used his uncle’s  pistol and his own badge as props to add to the scene.
