Blue and gold wedding ideas

MaruPhotography_LiteratureShoot_1

“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

Inspired by the beautiful words of the Bronte sisters, MARU PHOTOGRAPHY collaborated with Tahnee from CELSIA FLORAL to put together this beautiful shoot they affectionately coined ‘I have found you‘. It tells the story of an intimate elopement on a family’s rural property. The couple, Emily and Alexander, have returned to the bride’s farm where they have their first look together before exchanging vows over a candle ceremony in the overgrown apple orchard. The ceremony is followed by a harvest-style dinner at the family home. Continuing the connection to the setting, the shoot incorporates sentimental elements such as novels, the bride’s heirloom engagement ring, vintage flatware and china, and a family crest wax seal used on the marriage certificate and hand-made stationery suite.

The natural environment is complemented by the neutral palette which extends from the florals to the food. Shades of antique blue and tones of gold and mustard are used as accents throughout in a range of textures such as linen, velvet and raw silk.

“I have finally found what I can truly love. I have found you.”

Breakfast in bed styled engagement session

MaryClaire_EngagementSession_1

MARY CLAIRE PHOTOGRAPHY sent us this fun styled engagement session inspired by a breakfast in bed scene. Styled by Mary herself and cinematographer NICOLE TRAVELLER this is what they had to say about it; “We wanted to portray the intense closeness and lighthearted nature of photos taken in your home with your loved one. We love the idea of couple’s utilizing spaces they already live in to capture their special moments, as these are the places that hold personal memories and make you comfortable enough to create authentic photos. Makenna & Aaron are actually a real couple and an absolute blast to photograph, they are so genuine and playful together, their love is contagious. The film camera, guitar, and breakfast in bed tray added a fun element to the shoot, and Aaron playing guitar for Makenna was incredibly sweet.”

Harmonious nature inspired shoot

CamillaJorvad_SpringShoot_1

Captured entirely on film, this lovely bohemian inspired nature shoot by Danish photographer CAMILLA JØRVAD had been a long time in the planning. The idea came to mind when she met Mira – the model in the shoot – walking her beautiful Alaskan Malemute and German Shepherd mix.  

“I knew that Mira’s dog would look amazing on photos and with Mira’s beautiful light Nordic look, the two of them were a match made in film photography heaven. My biggest inspiration as a photographer is the nature that surrounds me on the small Danish island I live on. The cool nordic light, the sea and the birch tree clearings. The handmade bohemian style headpieces from Finnish designer Aino were a perfect match for this shoot and I was so happy she wanted to participate. I made the bouquet myself on the day of the shoot, using roses, elderberries, and wild flowers from my own garden. In the end I achieved what I wanted: a simple collection of photographs showing off the beauty and serenity of a life in harmony with the beautiful nature that surrounds us.”
