Today’s Bride – The Scout for the Cover 

I’ve been photographing the cover of Today’s Bride Magazine for a few years now.  When I met with Cristine Thomas last year to discuss the plan for the 2011 covers she said: “We’ve decided to try something new this year and leave the covers up to you!”.  I thought WOW – now this is going to be fun!

I was in the middle of planning my own wedding, following the theme of “Cowboy Chic | Denim and Diamonds” at Burning Man.  I had researched many great ideas – all of which I abandoned and left everything up to my dear friends at Asiel Design.  But the ideas were planted and I wanted to create my vision. 

If I were to get married any other way, I would do it at a ranch, with lots of horses, on a bright sunny day, in a barn, with simple but elegant décor, and lots of hay…. I like hay – I grew up climbing on piles of hay at the neighbor’s barns.

Leah and Rafael from Spiral Hand Design instantly popped into my mind.  I’ve worked with them on a handful of events.  They have such an elegant, simple style that I love.  Leah is me – she’s my sister from another mother!  And Rafael is always happy and fabulous! 

We all set off in search of the perfect venue.  A friend of a friend had an amazing ranch in Petaluma (it’s private, not for rent – sorry!).  I hope you enjoy the scout photos of the farm as well as the upcoming photos from the cover and the about the cover shoot!
