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.

Angel in the City | Las Vegas Fairytale Shoot | Savannah Kate

Last month, I was in Las Vegas for a few days to attend the annual WPPI conference. I look forward to this every year, as an opportunity to meet new friends and connect with old ones and also check out new products and innovations in the industry.

Of all the years I have attended, I had never taken advantage of the shooting opportunities going on. That all changed this year, when my friend Savannah provided me with a special shooting opportunity of my very own. Savannah Kate is a fairytale photographer in Louisiana and specializes in the most insanely magical composites that you have ever seen. Her work is definitely a must-see!

She is also conveniently very gorgeous. She brought along a vintage gown and some wings and let me create these images of her.

We set out early one morning, with the challenge of bringing a little bit of fairytale to the Las Vegas strip. It was certainly fun and pushed my creativity to it’s limits. It made me realize that it’s not necessarily always about where you are…but in how you choose to see what is before you.

Vibiana Wedding Photos – Vintage Victorian Wedding Inspiration – Blush and Gold Wedding Ideas

My jaw nearly dropped, when my Timehop app showed me some behind-the-scenes Instagram shots from this shoot and said it was exactly two years ago…… HOW did that happen? Time is going by too fast! We kept the shoot under wraps for a few months, so that Style Me Pretty could be the first to share it…and after that, things got busy and I forgot to put it up on my own blog. Better late than never!! ;)

The talented Vivian from Etablir set up this amazing shoot at the Vibiana and I was so honored to be asked to shoot it. This shoot was a romantic vintage dream….. blush and gold details, all against the pristine white backdrop of Vibiana. Perfection!!!
