Jane - WOW, I wish my bridal pics looked like this! AMAZING!

June 7, 2012 - 3:45 pm

Andrea - The first one with the ring on the china is so creative and just right for this location and really sets the scene. The one of her leaning on the white fence looking at the horses is amazing. Her dress is lovely and her smile and laugh are so pure. You have captured some really nice creative images here Audra. Looks like a really fun photo shoot between friends. A+!

June 7, 2012 - 7:30 am

Michelle - I love these!

June 6, 2012 - 5:14 pm

Emily - The most authentic bridal portraits I have ever had the pleasure to see. You captured every aspect of the scene, the dress and every aspect of her personality. What a gift you have!

June 6, 2012 - 6:40 am

Terry Branick - My thoughts cannot find the words to describe what I saw in those photos. Misty is so beautiful and you captured her happiness. If you could fit her beauty in a bottle, you would make millions!
from her mom, Terry

Sue McFarland - Beautiful beautiful girl and great shots, Audra!! Love that location.

June 5, 2012 - 5:28 pm

Misty - if tears could make rainbows, there’d be double arches in the sky. you paint the world a something kind of wonderful, audra bender, and i couldn’t feel more blessed to know you. here’s to the most amazingly fun, kindhearted, and wildly talented photographer i’ve ever met. cheers, dear one… and thank you.

June 5, 2012 - 3:43 pm

Susan Pierce - I can hear the laughter in that middle section. Amazing you caught that. It shows your talent as a photographer to have people feel that comfortable with you to truly be themselves and have fun. I love the depth of all of them. GORGEOUS!

June 5, 2012 - 1:06 pm

Jan Lindsey - You truly capture the essence of someone. You can tell by her laughter, the same thoughts were running through her head, she was hanging with a friend and not being photographed. You captured her joy, all over her face. WONDERFULLY DONE! Some of my favorites.

Hannah - The way she smiles makes her look so so gorgeous. though, she’s a beautiful woman. But her way to laugh!!!

Great job, audra!!
