Mariah

October 7, 2013

Mariah was one of my closest friends in high school. We had so much fun reminiscing and laughing about the fun we used to have together while we shot her bridal portraits at her family’s second home in Urbana. It was amazing to see her transform into the most beautiful bride! Her session was classic, waterfront, and full of light which was perfect for Mariah and her style. Nikki Santerre Photography_Priya & Zaid_Apple Blossom Plantation_Cultural Wedding_0095 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0002 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0003Love this ring shot! Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0005 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0006 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0007The light was swoon-worthy. Mariah’s Mimi handmade that quilt for her. There is a patch on the inside with a special message to “Angel Face,” as her Mimi calls her. Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0008 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0009 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0010 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0011 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0012 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0013 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0014 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0015 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0016You are so gorgeous, Mariah! Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0017 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0018 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0019 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0020 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0021Her sweet Mama, Lisa, was there to make sure the veil cooperated. 😉 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0022 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0023Favorites!Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0024 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0025 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0026 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0027 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0028 Nikki Santerre Photography_Urbana Bridal Portraits_Mariah_0029Ah, the water, the light, Mariah’s expression.
