I can’t even rave enough about this shoot right now..the colors, the model (my cousin!!!!!!), the vendors rocked it all out some kind of incredible! We had rain on and off, over and over, and we still got the shoot not only set up and rocked out but it looked AMAZING with the cloudy sky as our softbox and wonderful element of contrast with the pink, teal & gold!
Hannah Hildebrandt is such an incredible event planner that I am sooo glad I found! Our personalities are both very bubbly and we are both so humble and in love with what we do that she is my planner match-made-in-heaven! I love the way she feels about her job and how she treats her clients and that she never takes a job for granted. It gives her such an advantage to be truly personable and easy to be around because when it comes to planning, the kind of brides that I work with want someone with a good heart. Vendors appreciate other nice vendors, too! 🙂 I love her vision and can’t wait to work with her again in the future! We may be doing a style shoot every chance we get!
Pink, teal, gold, chevron, floral designs, tablescape, macarons, a bold cake and a gorgeous lace gown from Maya Couture– this is my dream shoot, so thank you all for making it happen! Enjoy the images, they are some of my favorites!
Photographers: Most of the portraits of Allison is shot at 1.2 with a 50mm, superrrrrr wide! I love shooting wide because I get not only the bokeh I adore but this soft, romantic look everywhere else putting the focus juuuust right on the desired highlight of every image. Although I would never vignette a picture, I love the natural vignette that comes from shooting wide! Also, because it was super cloudy but still light out- I utilized that giant softbox (the sky!) and had her facing right where the sun would be. If I didn’t, I’d have intense shadows (and I’m okay with dramatic and natural shadows) where I don’t want them. Thank you Amy Forehand & Heather Papineau for being AMAZING assistants and friends to me!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 XOXOXOXO
Thank you to Heather & Amy for assisting and being there for me! Love you both and appreciate it SO much!
