I love photography. I also love talking about and teaching photography. When I was invited to lead a styled shoot for Photo Native this year I was excited. Jessica from St. Thomas Floral Design and I teamed up with the intent to make something soft and beautiful. All of our (Mostly Jessica’s) hard work really paid off. Despite coming down with my first real cold in 10 years the night before the shoot, I felt like I was able to get some great photos and talk everyones ears off at the same time. I hope none of the attendees picked up my cold because it was something awful. Thanks, again, to our amazing team of vendors which I have listed.

Oh my goodness I am so excited to show off this gorgeous session that involved so many of my favorite vendors. I was recently asked to teach at Photo Native and this shoot was part of one of my classes. It was so fun to teach about Efficient Shooting! The details and everything was absolutely beautiful. And I do have to say, I especially love this couple. I can’t believe that its been four years since these two love birds tied the knot. Their wedding was and will always be one of my favorites. It was so fun to see them again and have them participate in this beautifully styled shoot.

I do have to say too that I loved meeting all the photographers and it has been so fun to see their take on all the details. And of course, so much love to all the amazing vendors. Sessions like these wouldn’t be possible without all of their amazing support and creativity!

Influenced by the natural patina of antique silver, this indoor wedding design was curated using elements that manifest the organic beauty that special objects develop over time. As metals age, they take on an iridescent quality with tones of sepia, purple and subtle teal. This palette was reflected in the deep pigments of the flowers. Tender spring blooms like hellebore, tinted ranunculus and sweet pea, and fragrant lilac were paired with sculptural branches and rugged juniper.Bathed in subdued window light, we kept the design elements surrounding our real couple few and significant, allowing their love and natural chemistry to shine through. The bride was draped in a billowing silk shift, adorned simply with a striking brown diamond ring. Together, they nestled comfortably into a natural nook, created with clusters of juniper and foraged bits. Heirloom elements, including classical wax seals on handmade paper, spools of softest silk, a homemade pavlova wedding cake and an antique wedding crown of tiny waxed flowers, further communicated the depth of their commitment.

As a film photographer, I had many students in my class that were new to film.  It was important to me to teach my students not only how to translate styled shoot ideas from a controlled environment into a real wedding day, but also to help those interested in film to learn more.  The FIND Lab sponsored my shoot and even brought cameras, film, and provided a discount to students, some who shot their very first roll of film during my shoot!  I was so fulfilling to hear the students during their "aha" moments and learn something new they could take home with them to apply in their business.
