Fashion/ Model: Natalie/Photographer: Kent Barker /

     Sometimes when you do a just just know it's going to be beautiful...this was my first time to work with Kent and the absolutely sweetest ever and talented Peggy Wolf...his studio manager and love of his life.  One thing I love about my job is being able to stand back behind the photographer and see what he is seeing...Natalie is amazingly beautiful!! I knew we were capturing some amazing shots but when Kent sent them to me....I was actually shocked!! I was sooo excited!! When I showed them to the Agency...the response was...Oh my God...I just broke out in that's a compliment!! So I decided to use Natalie as the face for my comp card...and I love them!!

Emily, a Ambercrombie model, chose Kent to do her wedding portrait.  But being a model she wanted something different and on the edge.  Emily is very down to earth so we started very soft and natural.  Her dress was an antique that she found at a vintage store and had tailored to fit perfectly.

I'm not sure if she actually wore her cowboy boots on her wedding day, but they sure were cute for this picture on the stairwell at Southside on Lamar.


Before heading off to Deep Elum for a more editorial shot, I smoked out her eyes and went wild on the hair.  Her furry friend was the ring bearer in the wedding and he is known by none other than "Johnny Cash".

Love this close up of Emily.  It really shows off her amazing eyes and porcelain skin.

A great effect for the edgy look were the biker boots.  Notice the hemline of her dress.... short in the front then trailing in the back.

Only a real model could pull off looking great in their wedding dress and biker in boots in Deep Elum.  Do you see Johnny Cash?  What a great, fun day with Emily, Kent, Peggy (Kent's awesome assistant), and of course, Johnny Cash.
