Jordan’s Bridal Portraits

I’m so excited to be able to share a few of Jordan’s bridals now that she’s a MARRIED woman! Jordan and Shelby tied the knot at Pecan Springs and I did her bridal portraits there a few weeks earlier. Spring is such an amazing time to do portrait sessions in Houston! It was 65° and sunny, not a cloud in the sky!  Heaven!

Jordan is such a fun, sweet, country girl and we had such a great time making her bridal portraits! I adored her grandmother’s opal necklace, which she wore for her ceremony, isn’t it gorgeous?! We love it when brides include little touches that can really make the session personal. : )

Now, I knew Jordan loved her doggies so near the end of the session I asked if she loved all animals…and if she’d want to go take some portraits in the field with the resident donkeys and cows!  She’s my kind of bride, so of course, she was game! We took some fun, sunny portraits in the field and now I just want this friendly white donkey as my pet!
