Not your typical bridal portrait, is it?
The first time I saw this photo The Mr. and I were walking through a bridal show. I was the Las Vegas Wedding Planner trying to go incognito. He was the ever supportive and patient guy I dragged along with me!
I am a big lover of photography, and a huge believer in the idea that your wedding photos become a part of your family legacy, I was lingering over all of the books and portfolios that were presented. Tony was doing what all (good) men (try to) do - Walking dutifully beside me, feigning interest, and trying to sneak peaks at his watch with that "how much longer?" look in his eye until he turned and came face to face with the very image you see above.
"Now THAT'S a wedding picture!" It was the first glimmer of excitement I saw in him all day! We literally spent the next hour looking at the blown up images hung around their space, flipping through books of their work, and marveling at the scope of style and vision displayed by couple, owner, and visionaries ~ John & Dalisa Cooper.
"You mean the same people took all of these photos?" he marveled, flipping back and forth between the classically shot bridal bouquet, the ever so on trend Trash the Dress, and sultry, the beautiful, and one particular photo entitled "My Joan of Arc" that you can see here.
Anyone and anything that catches this man's attention has mine, and so with that, my personal love affair with Alt F began.
A favorite among artists, glitterati, wedding enthusiast and elite couples around the world, Alt F is the go-to photography source for couples looking to create more than a picture, but art!
Dalisa, the self-professed business side of the company and a very talented photographer in her own right is all flare, enthusiasm, infection laughs, and charisma. Her husband, John, is the artist who sees the world unlike any other. Quiet, reserved in his demeanor, and rather unassuming, he uses light, darkness, editing and effects to break the laws of nature and show you the world through a different set of eyes.
With works that span the classic, the elegant, the gritty, disturbing, ethereal and other-worldly, I can say without a doubt that the work of Alt F is certainly not for everyone.
Which is exactly why I love recommending them to you, and booking them as often as I can!
Now, for your viewing pleasure...
