Riki & Jason Young

Married August 24, 2013Young-Wedding-712
Riki and Jason met in 2009 while at Lake Don Pedro. It was love at first sight for the two who couldn’t be separated after that day. Just after three years together Jason surprised Riki with a weekend getaway to Monterrey were he proposed at Lovers’ Point.

When the newly-engaged couple started planning their special day, they knew one thing: it had to be an all-white wedding with just a hint of gold for the color scheme. The color palette stayed true throughout the décor and all the way to the desserts.
Before saying “I DO” the couple shared personal vows they had written for one another. After the ceremony Riki and Jason were incredibly eager to be swept away by their photographer and have their first moment together as husband and wife captured as the sun set behind them.Young-Wedding-803

After returning from pictures and being announced as Mr. and Mrs. Young, Jason was surprised with a gift from his wife. Riki had arranged to have a light-up dance floor for the evening, which is just up Jason’s alley, as he loves to dance.

Bride by Nature

Inspired by an Organic Milieu

Organic and whimsical is how Jamie Bearg describes her photographic style for the Bride by Nature photo shoot that is the subject of this month’s BCM cover.

“I love to capture moments,” Jamie says, “by using different angles.”  Her goal with a photo shoot is to shoot in natural light to create shadows and enhance the appearance of the subject.  “The interaction of light and shadow is fascinating.  Light can make the subject feisty or dull while shadows can make the subject mysterious and romantic.”

The Bride by Nature photo shoot was inspired not only by women she has met who were definitely “meant to be beautiful, glowing brides” but also by the almond orchard by which Jamie frequently drives.  Jamie explains, “It’s so beautiful, mature, and well-maintained.  It just always seemed to catch my eye and I began to imagine what kind of wedding would be fitting for a location like that.”
BridebyNature-JamieBeargPhotography_BridalCoutureMagJamie strived to create a capricious and couture feel for the shoot.  She knew it had to be high-fashion and make a statement without being overdone.  It also had to feature aspects of the surrounding nature.

To pull the look together Jamie and vendors utilized antique silverware, wood invites and wood table numbers, simple yet gorgeous flowers and linens, boldly natural chairs, a lovely model and a majestic horse.

Jamie recommends this style of photography to any couple looking for photos that will capture their unforgettable moments with much depth, feel and emotion.
