Irish Wedding Inspiration

CJKVisuals_IrishShoot_1

There is something incredibly romantic about all things Irish – the moody weather (rain and all!), the beautiful castles, breathtaking landscapes, dramatic coastal cliffs – I could go on. The ladies from POP THE CORK DESIGNS and CJK VISUALS have demonstrated it perfectly in this shoot that makes you want to jump right into the screen and live in it for a little while.

Jenna from POP THE CORK DESIGNS tells us, “After talking with Caitlin of CJK Visuals and being inspired from her recent European trips, I knew I wanted to do an Irish Inspired Shoot. I’ve always been inspired by the Irish landscapes, colors, and romance. With this in mind, I dreamt up a color palette that would fit the perfect red-headed Irish bride. With various green tones and a cooler palette, this wedding could happen any season in Ireland.

The florals from the Floral Studio were made of soft blues and greens that accented the Navy Blue TaraLatour gown. The gown, one of my favorite parts of this shoot, perfectly contrasted our model’s beautiful Irish porcelain complexion. The Regent at Stonehouse venue reflected a moody atmosphere and the misty sky and deep fog (and a pending snow storm!) perfectly reflected the rainy, but romantic weather often found Ireland.

Sweet horses, hills, and a couple in love- this shoot takes me straight to Ireland and makes me want to plan elopements and weddings in Ireland every season!

Canoeing in the snow photo session

TreyDillon_Kayla&Chris_1

I’m a big fan of outdoor shoots that show you and your loved one doing what you love the most… and of course if that happens to be canoeing in the snow, all the better for it!! Especially when you get awesome moody photos like these. TREY DILLON had been sitting on this idea for sometime and finally got his chance as he explains below…

“Lets talk about romance for a minute. Canoeing on private waters while its snowing. Glad we got that talk out of the way. A little while back I dreamt up this idea of photographing a couple canoeing in the snow. Then I remembered that I lived in Texas – a clashing reality. But surprise! It snowed this year in the Lone Star State. When I woke up and there was “snow” I was 100% set on making this idea actually happen. I hadn’t realized it would be so hard to piece together the rest of the puzzle. I had to find a couple that were a) into the idea, b) had a truck that could trek in the snow, c) were available at a moments notice and d) that I wanted to bless with a photo shoot. Oh yeah, and they had to own a canoe. After sorting through five couples I struck GOLD. Kayla and Chris were the perfect eligible and adventurous couple for this shoot. I could not be happier that the snowy outdoors and adventurous canoeing so much supported the fun and loving relationship that Kayla and Chris share with one another. We later found out that Jax, their puppy, was even more excited about our fun day than even we were. The result is something I’m really into. It reminded me that shooting something that starts from an idea rather than a request is a vital part of growing as an artist.

Engagement session in golden fields

SarahMarie_Anthony&Sara_1

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.
