Sweet, sassy, Southern elegance. Eleanor and her family could not have been more gracious during her bridal portrait session at her childhood home. Eleanor’s wedding photographer was called out of town due to emergency the evening before Eleanor’s portrait session, so I stepped in at the 11th hour. What could have been a tense and distrusting situation was completely the opposite–welcoming, genuine, and filled with grace. In true Southern form, after our session, Eleanor’s sweet mama sent me the kindest hand-written note, where she told me, “[We] looked at the pictures last night and were so pleased! We just smiled at all of them and several times (i.e. many times) would comment ‘That’s Eleanor.’ It’s very hard to picture your daughter as the bride. Both of us had tears in the corners of our eyes.”
So, so sweet….just like Eleanor’s bridal portraits.
