Lush and Romantic Bridal Inspiration Shoot | Chicago Stylized Shoot

While I was in Chicago, in April, I collaborated with model Anna DeBlecourt on this lush and whimsical bridal inspiration shoot. Not only is she a stunning model, but also has a lovely eye for design and style and was a huge part in the coordination of this shoot. In fact, she put all of this together!
We didn’t let unfortunate weather rain on our parade… and rather, used it as an excuse to move our shoot to a beautiful conservatory, which really served to pull our vision together.
This shoot was inspired by dreamy hues of purple, lush florals and whimsy.

Branding is Key Shootout – Romantic Stylized Bridal Shoot

Last Summer I hosted a little reunion for my Branding is Key workshop attendees. We all got together for a dreamy stylized shootout and then went out for dinner afterwards, to catch up on life and business. It was such a fun time getting to see these girls again and all work together on a shoot!

This shoot was made possible with gorgeous rentals from Etablir Shop and stunning florals from Glendora Florist. The dress was a design that I created, by combining a tulle skirt that I made, with a lace bustier that I added some embellishments to. I love how the soft and romantic elements came together with the touches of black.

Thank you to our gorgeous models Kelsey & Daniel!
