Tell All About It Tuesday: A Woodlands Holiday Styled Shoot

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I had been planning this shoot for months. I kept checking the weather report hoping that would miraculously report that the rain had subsided but when we got to Running Springs, it clearly did not. As a result of the rain, we were stuck in traffic, started setting up almost 2 hours behind schedule and were racing against time since the sun would soon disappear. All the outside vignettes I dreamed up would have to be quickly staged indoors and our models would have to pose in the brisk air and rain. But you know what? Everyone made it happen! We braved the rain and in my humble opinion, it worked out beautifully! The outdoor shots in our real Bride's mom's yard turned out stunning, dreamy and romantic. Her cozy cabin gave the detailed shots warmth and intimacy. I uploaded some highlights on our Facebook page and here are some other images that I'd like to share :)

All you need is...

 Gorgeous cake!!! The sequins applique was from a headband from Charlotte Russe of all places!

A Table for Two

And then it rained... notice the water smearing the ink! 

What it really looked like behind the scenes! 

What a beautiful bride :) 

A classic moment

 Dress details.. the leaves matched the leaves on the invites, too!

Here I am fixing her hem :)


 The groom looking ever so dapper!!! Don't you just LOVE this slate velvet bow tie from Boutaugh?

I had to throw this one in for laughs.. we were so wrapped up in the moment, we forgot to remove his blue coat clip! This WILL be edited out LOL
