EDGY AND SLEEK BRIDAL FASHION

a look into an edgy and sleek bridal look.

you can have a fashion forward look on your wedding day, who said you can’t?
this edgy and sleek bridal fashion shoot was literally everything i have dreamt of for a really long time and more. there is a way to incorporate fashion into a bridal look and if im being totally honest, i would fall over dead if i had someone do this look for their wedding day. just sayin. 😉 it’s really cool to pull together a team of absolutely amazing talented artists and tell them that your looking to do an edgy and sleek bridal fashion shoot – and then they slay. they straight up slay.

let’s start highlighting the team that totally made this edgy and sleek bridal fashion shoot, exactly what it is. first and foremost, this damn dress. all of the heart eyes. it’s clearly an edgy but sleek wedding dress. AND great news, you can get this Rosa Clara design exclusively at Posh Bridal in lancaster! this dress was a staple for this edgy and sleek bridal fashion shoot. without it, it wouldn’t have flowed so beautifully. secondly, that makeup. let’s take a moment of silence…. okay take a breath. yeah, ITS EDGY, but sleek! exactly what we’re going for. veronica at vero leigh literally crushed this look to a T. we pulled together a mood board, and i just let her do her thing. this was all her. 100%. no matter what, she wanted blue and wanted to make it a statement. and she obviously did that!

next, only sara from hemlock and hellebore would match the flowers with the makeup. because she’s that good, and pays that much attention to color and detail. these flowers make me want to sob because i can’t even handle how perfect they are. they absolutely fit with the edgy and sleek bridal fashion look. but yet, still look like a wedding! like these could literally be your centerpiece and bouquet!

and what is the one thing that ties everything together, and is a make or break statement. THE HAIR! those pins. THAT BRAID. like omg, jenna at tousled beauty  nailed this look. whats so awesome is that she took a little step in the uncomfort zone and pulled together the best edgy and sleek bridal fashion look. im just over here waiting for someone to hire her for their wedding and get this exact look.

i also want to personally thank the model, brooklyn for this shoot. i mean, do words even need to be said about her beauty. she perfection. she made this everything that it is. and she was so chill and willing to do whatever we wanted. thank you brooklyn for your time. and i also want to thank holly over at harmony redesign co. this home that we shot it was done by them, and done to perfection. it really supplied us with a look that was perfect for an edgy and sleek bridal fashion look. thank you for opening your home and allowing us to photograph there!

if you want this look, and want me to photograph it (pssst. maybe for your wedding?) – inquire here!

A ROMANTIC UTAH WEDDING IN UTAH

UTAH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

PRESTON & CLAIRE

so, this romantic utah wedding in utah was everything we could have dreamt of and more. never have we ever considered utah as being a place where we’d want to photograph a wedding. but let me tell you what, now we have major dreams of being a utah wedding photographer. i probable have way too many words to describe this romantic utah wedding, so hopefully we can achieve our words through the photos below.
this romantic utah wedding gave us a new perspective on life. i don’t think we have ever met a more kind hearted welcoming group of people. we would absolutely love to be full time utah wedding photographers just so we can be around such happiness and positivity all of the time! all you heard was laughter. all you saw were smiles. and everyone was ready to call you a friend and welcome you into this romantic utah wedding with open arms.
you will notice there are a good amount of photos of children at this romantic utah wedding. that’s because they were the most beautiful children out of any wedding we have every photographed. they were all so full of life! found joy in small things. and none of them we’re on phones. this is one thing we (personally) loved – because we are the same way with our children.
but as for preston and claire: literal definition of romantics. if you could only have seen the way they laughed and looked at each other. no wonder we’re stamping this to be a romantic utah wedding. you could clearly see they were soulmates and meant to last for a lifetime and more. we are SO honored to be able to say that we were the ones who photographed this beyond incredible romantic mormon wedding. thank you preston and claire! <3

CHERISHED BACKYARD WEDDING

bevin & josh

york pa, wedding

this was a cool one. this cherished backyard wedding was more personal to us than others we have done. the bride went to school with my husband! and my husband grew up being close to her brother! so i would say we were just a taaaad bit more connected to this wedding.

first of all. this cherished backyard wedding took place on the property that bevin grew up on. when you decide to have a backyard wedding, and when you choose for it to be on the property of your own home you grew up on, we immediately fall in love. you can bring all kinds of details to a wedding venue to showcase your personalties and your love. but there is something about having a backyard wedding at your own house, that you don’t even need to try. naturally the love and connection is there. the personalities shine through. and it makes for the most precious backyard wedding.

so many things about this cherished backyard wedding had us doing flips in our minds. (not physically, because that does not happen) first of all, getting married on this property. duh. but the property is being sold, so this was the last even that would happen here. secondly, these two are musicians. and they performed at the party! we LOVED this part. i mean LOVED! thirdly, josh is a chef, so naturally they had food that was very near and dear to him and what he loves. and fourthly, they had a band that truly reminded me exactly of bevin and josh. fourthly, (keeps on coming) josh’s mother and father performed a song at the ceremony. this melted us. THIS is what a cherished backyard wedding is all about. sticking true to your blood. to your personalities. and thats the best way to have a bomb backyard wedding.
