Christopher and Noelle, Burn Scar

We used to shoot our After Sessions quite often. For a while there was a trash the dress fad, and yes we did participate to an extent. Lately we have not shot too many after sessions but one of those that we have was a super fun experience.

Some of you know Noelle and Christopher from their connection session and their wedding. We also posted a few of  Noelle’s parents connection session images with the old white corvette.

Anyway, when it was time to plan their after session, they, as most couples do, left it up to us. Well I had really wanted to shoot in the Jemez mountains burn scar from the huge fire they had up there last year. I thought the juxtaposition of a beautiful bride in her dress and the black burned trees would be very interesting…

It’s funny, the juxtaposition i wanted in the beginning, I was not able to fully capture, but it is what I didn’t plan to capture that i have fallen in love with.

Noelle is crazy by the way. She walked right out to the edge of these several hundred foot high cliffs, tossed her dress over the edge and struck a pose. I had visions of Ophelia, like white falling dress over the cliff craziness… Well she pulled it off like nothing, I think Christopher was more on the cautious side. He just kind of edged in next to her… with out looking over the edge too much. I was half waiting to see Noelle spit off the edge of the cliff to see how long it took to hit bottom. (she is however much to refined for that) I, of course, wasted no time spitting a big’n right over the edge…it vanished before I could see it hit…

Anyway, the picture that really shows the true grandeur of these cliffs and the craziness of Noelle’s proximity to the edge is not in these images. It is a vertical pano and just didn’t fit well into the blog… maybe I will post it on it’s own later!!!
