Well my friends, this shoot has been in the works for a long, long time. For years now I’ve envisioned putting together my own styled shoot- from vision board to reality- that would capture a little bit more of my story, my family, my brand, and my style. I wanted to incorporate the circle arch my grandpa built for my sister’s wedding, and my hometown, and my parent’s new waterfront home, and all my favorite colors and designs. The couple modeling as bride and groom (Mel and Dan) actually got engaged in my parent’s backyard just last summer! They were married just over 6 months ago and I got to be their wedding photographer and since they’ve become sweet friends. So I loved bringing them back to where she said “YES!” and capturing the feeling of that day through this gorgeous shoot!
