amanda : omaha trash the dress

Oh, man, am I ever excited to post this blog. It's one I've been waiting to do since the second I took the pictures. It's by far my favorite shoot. And I'll say right'll want to check out the complete set, because I desperately want to post each and every picture from the day.

Amanda lives in Omaha, but was married in Baltimore, her hometown. She decided that as long as she was going to pay for her dress to be cleaned/preserved, she might as well make it worth it! So one evening, we headed out to a top secret location* for an amazing trash the dress shoot.

*Okay, not so top secret because it's where I got my engagement pics taken, where I did MY trash the dress shoot, and every time I go there we see at least one or two other photographers...but I like to think of it as top secret.

And while you're looking at these, watch the color of her eyes. It changes from blue to green to hazel, and it's awesome. I swear to God I didn't change it in post!

Amanda was an absolutely amazing model. She needed no direction and had great ideas for places and posing. I would shoot her every day if I could! Thanks, Amanda, and I'm glad your dress didn't get too dirty...even with lying down in the train tracks!

this is definitely your best work yet. She is the new face...and body...and dress...and mostly EYES of Photography By Lara. What a great set.
And...I'm a wee bit familiar with the location...but I have no idea why.
