Elegant Safari inspiration

OliviaLeigh_SafariShoot_1

I love the contrast between the elegant look of this couple against the natural backdrop of the gorgeous wildlife park in Oregon. OLIVIA LEIGH PHOTOGRAPHY sent us this stunning shoot complete with an amazing gold sequinned gown and a modern floral arrangement by BARB’S FLOWERS.

Stylist Shauna from J29 EVENTS had this to say about he shoot, “For our safari themed shoot, we wanted to step outside the box by blending glam and elegance with a natural landscape while still maintaining a look that could be easily achieved by any couple. We also loved the idea of a vintage inspired safari wedding because it brought in a different exotic element. The Wildlife Safari in Roseburg, Oregon was the perfect venue to execute our vision of high fashion meets exotic animals. The subtle bursts of color in the florals were the finishing touch that brought our look together.”

Sarah from WILDLIFE SAFARI tells us a bit about their cheetah program, “Cheetahs are now the most endangered of the large cats in Africa.  Our ambassador cheetahs, Khayam & Machumba, who were hand raised after their mother rejected them, serve as ambassadors for their species, captivating audiences wherever they go.  It really gets people’s attention and gets them excited to learn about conservation and the difference they can make when they get to hear the cheetahs purr and experience in person there magnificence.  All of Wildlife’s Safari’s programs with the cheetah focus on educating the public about these animals and the plight of their wild counterparts.  It is estimated that there are only 9,000-12,000 cheetahs left in the wild. Thankfully, here at Wildlife Safari, we are working to remedy this situation. Wildlife Safari has an incredible cheetah breeding program, 176 cheetahs cubs have been born here to date. We work hard to match the most genetically diverse cheetahs, ensuring that future generations will be happy, healthy, and successful.”

Serene Charleston Harbour Shoot

KatieGrant_CharlestonHarbour_1

I’m a big fan of beach shoots that don’t look like your typical beach shoots and this one by KATIE GRANT ticks all the boxes. Taken at the BLISS & BOKEH workshop on the shores of Charleston Harbour – a magical place where lush green seagrass meets the calm, muted, shore lined with oyster shells and washed up driftwood. This serene setting is reflected in an elegant shoot with the most smartly dressed groom and gorgeous bride, and stunning florals by GATHERING EVENTS.
