I hope you’re all having a nice weekend! We have had the rainiest of Saturdays here… could barely get outside! So naturally I’m dreaming of some golden sunshine like in these gorgeous images by SARAH MARIE PHOTOS. For Sara and Anthony’s styled engagement shoot, stylist JANNA BROWN DESIGN CO. worked with soft shades of blush, cream and grey to create warmth and softness to be captured by Sarah. Janna tells us, “The location at the Stables at Russell Crossroads provided an ethereal glow, and the wind blowing through the sea of wheat looked like a scene from a fairytale. SILK & WILLOW’S swoon-worthy silk cascaded over the decor, and rippled in the breeze along with the tulle on the gorgeous JENNY YOO Annabelle dress. LERAE EVENTS provided florals that were gorgeously wild and unruly. The sun set over the field and allowed for an amazing day of shooting as we ventured deep into the woods for a few darker shots at dusk. The moodiness of the final images created the perfect closure for our stunning shoot.“
After spying an image from this shoot on Instagram I was pretty excited to receive it in my inbox just a few days later – especially as I’d saved the image to share anyway. It’s so nice to see a shoot with yellow in it, I don’t see that colour used too much these days and I love it in this earthy landscape. The beautiful photography by CARRIE KING PHOTO ensures the colours in the stunning florals – by YONDER FLORAL & DECOR HOUSE – are a standout against the neutral tones of the rocks and mountains.
Carrie tells us, “Inspired by the onset of the warmer months, a lovely color palette of yellow ranunculus mixed with greenery and jasmine vine illuminates this stunning Colorado landscape. I am such a fan the of wind, it literally breathes life into an image. I never fight that. The bride’s hair dances throughout the spaces that fill my lens. The effortless style of the flowing Gemy Maalouf skirt paired with the pale yellow lace top is heaven to me. Femininity defined.“

With the intention of combining rustic French style with a bit of glitz and glamour, MALLORY RENEE PHOTO together with LESLIE DAWN EVENTS created this shoot seamlessly integrating both silver and gold – not always as easy as you’d think! Using a more champagne toned gold the concept is pulled together with an abundance of luxurious greenery by STUDIO STEMS. A stunningly delicate gown by MAGGIE SOTTERO from MY BRIDAL CLOSET adds the perfect touch of glamour to it, whilst FOIL & INK crafted a lovely stationery suite featuring gold botanical sketches.
