Kat & Dave

Kat & Dave were a lovely couple I met in Chamonix, France, they had booked me to do an on Mountain Portrait Shoot. They were originally from America, but were living in Geneva at the time and found me via google. Kat was recently pregnant so they wanted some photographs to send back home to America.

When I met them on the mountain at the top of the chair lift, Kat had decided to wear her wedding dress and told me about the ‘trash the dress’ tradition in America. No, this doesn’t mean ruining your gorgeous dress, but is actually a chance to wear your wedding dress again to make some really creative photographs. We had initially agreed to do just a portrait shoot, but as soon as I saw Kat in her dress, I managed to convince them it would be great fun to take some action shots of them both skiing (which they later told me they were extremely happy they did!)

To mix on mountain skiing photography, wedding photography and portraiture photography, with Mont Blanc as the backdrop was idyllic. The Blue bird spring conditions was the cherry on top.
