When I dreamed of putting together my first styled shoot I was nervous, anxious, and filled with excitement. I had an image in my head of my gorgeous friend Katherine, in a beautiful wedding dress with curls in her hair, wrapped in a warm & cozy looking blanket. That was my inspiration for the shoot. I wanted colors of deep Marsala with light pink to decorate the table, with touches of gray. I reached out to some vendors through The Rising Tide Society, and found a group of women that I just fell in love with.

After a lot of hard work and beautiful collaboration, my vendors and I put together a beautiful styled shoot at the gorgeous 48 Fields venue in Leesburg, VA. The bottom of the barn was covered in gorgeous gray slate-esque tiles, with rustic wooden long tables. The room just screamed for my vision. As we set the table, and made a organic table runner out of light pink and white beach glass, I fell in love. The light, the table settings, the location.

Once our bride & groom models, Katherine & Travis, who were a real life couple that are friends of mine, showed up, the magic in the air just grew. Katherine & Travis were unable to having wedding pictures from their wedding, so these images meant something to them as well. When Katherine put on the gorgeous tulle wedding dress by Theia, the humming in the air quieted, and all that mattered was Travis & Katherine.

The images that were captured are beautiful. Yes, the light was perfect, and the gorgeous scenery provided by the location of 48 Fields added to the beauty, but the love that Katherine & Travis feel for one another oozes out of the photos and warms your heart. This styled shoot became so much more to me, and to Katherine & Travis. I hope you see the love that went into this styled shoot, as well as the love felt by our real life couple.
