Spring Styled Shoot

My floral dreams came true for this spring styled shoot I did with a couple of amazing partners.  When Christy Tyler Photography approached me to be a part of her Lighting Workshop for Photographers I was thrilled.  I decided that I was going to totally go for it and create what I've been wanted to do for a while.  A romantic, whimsical inspirational shoot filled with soft florals and gorgeous candles.  This was my first time working with so many incredible people.  Everything was so perfect!  

Big shout out to all the amazing people who worked on this styled shoot.  It couldn't have happened without all of your talents.

Garland for days

When this bride contacted me for her wedding I was so excited I couldn't contain myself!  I absolutely love long tables and filling them with gorgeous garland of greenery.  The bride was so much fun to work with and so detail oriented.  She spray painted all the centerpieces herself and provided an amazing old rustic ladder for her alter as well as a wooden welcome sign, bar cart and sign in table that were truly unique.   I even got to use my new white shutter screen which was perfect for place cards and for a backdrop for the head table.  It was truly a fantastic collaboration, we were totally on the same page for everything and I think that shows.

Check out the amazing photos George Street Photo captured of the wedding.  (some photos are my own, I'm sure you can tell which ones lol)

Adding garland to a gift table is a great way to dress it up.

The bride used old pages from a book for her place cards.  They fit perfectly into the slats of the screen.
