Brides Collection what is Brides Collection?

Brides Collection is a collection of brides that I have photographed over the years. All are real-life brides. Only one is a professional model, can you figure out who that may be? My background before becoming a wedding photographer, I photographed a lot of fashion and portraits. When asked why change from being a fashion photographer to be being a wedding photographer? my answer is very simple  ” a wedding is a fashion shoot ”  great clothes, cool details, amazing locations, between 30 to 100 assistants, and two models that show up, and the bride hasnt just been for a coca cola commercial audition!
