Over this past year I have been very fortunate to have gotten to know Amanda from Amanda Kopcic Photography. We decided to get together to do a fun shoot. It went from shooting one another to a shoot for a trash the dress. We found a model named Stacey who had been thinking of having a trash the dress shoot! Stacey did a fantastic job and she is so beautiful! It was perfect, Stacey and her husband just celebrated their 6th anniversary! They have two beautiful children. Congrats to you both!
I must admit on the day of the shoot I was a little worried that it was going to be cool but it ended up being the perfect temperature. We had Stacey jumping and swimming. We used my husband’s Aunt and Uncle’s place as our location….it truly is a beautiful spot! When I described the location to Amanda she laughed and said ‘do they live on a resort!!!!’…well not quite…it really is a nice place and we were very lucky that they allowed us to have used their pool! So a very special thank you goes out to them for allowing us to use it!
Stacey had wanted to get her makeup done professionally so Amanda and I talked to a friend of ours Maggie Machado who has her own business, you may have heard of her, she owns Creative Baby Bumps in London Ontario. She did a fantastic job! After she was done doing her make up she hung around and became what we called ‘Stacey’s Maid of Honour’!!! Maggie was a big help! I must say it’s not easy to move in a soaking wet wedding gown!!!!
As always Amanda it was a pleasure to work with you again, we always have fun doing what we both love to do….capturing people’s true essence on film! Until next time….as we both know there will be!
Stacey’s gown is from Garber’s Bridal in London.
