Guyyyyssss. The blogosphere is literally dripping with styled shoots. Some blogs have gone so far as to not accept them anymore. Personally, I’ve cut back, but when a styled shoot like this one drops in your inbox, well the alternative inside me just screams. The tattoos, the fantasy hair, the ink inspired designs, I just can’t!!! These vendors got together at a new venue in Richmond and the result is just so inspiring to me. Hope you all love it as much as I do!
This shoot was a collaboration of many talented vendors. The florist used a photo of a tattoo to create her pieces. The venue is a new wedding venue and is very rural. You can see from the photos that elements that were used to tie into the colorful palate of tattoos! The invitation was actually a thin piece of wood-like material!
The organizer of the shoot wanted a Rockabilly meets Midsummer dream feel. I think we accomplished this. The couple was married about a year before the shoot. The dress is from Bygones (listed below) however, bits of tulle from the bride’s mother’s prom dress are sewn into the inside to create the crinoline effect.
As a photographer, I looked for inspiration around the venue. One of the photos I love is in the main house where I combined their wall decoration (which was a crate and barbwire) with the invitation and a rockabilly cupcake- I think this is great summary of the whole shoot! I also wanted to achieve an overview effect of the venue and a general feel of the day. Attached is a photo of me in the “bucket” taking one of the shoots of the day.
