Styled Shoot: Lovely Valentine's Day Bridal Inspiration

Happy Friday lovers! We have a sweet Valentine's Day photo shoot that Christina from Sweetly Stitched Images sent over to us! The shoot features a gorgeous red haired model, and sweet nods to the heart filled love day.

Christina shared this with us for what inspired her vision you see here:
Recently I had an itch to photograph an off the beaten path bridal styled shoot. With the winter months swarming in whether we like it or not, I really wanted to highlight one of my favorite winter holidays...Valentine's Day. :) I pitched the idea to a few wonderfully talented wedding industry pros in my area, and to my delight, they were in! So one recent Saturday afternoon, a small group of fun loving women put their ideas together in a small (natural light) studio to bring you this lovely Valentine's Day bridal inspiration shoot.
