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.
We really wanted to give the overall feeling of years of the past...using antique dishes, a vintage look to our bride's hair, makeup, and attire etc. We kept her look unique as well by ditching a veil for an amazing real flower adorned hat done the day of by Unveiled Weddings and a simple but feminine ensemble ...Then we had some fun and mixed it in with some of today's trends ...ie...paper straws, buntings, and even a photo prop or two. ;-) We decided to do the shoot indoor as many brides opt to do this time of year in our area...using a sweet/simple lace and tulle backdrop we were able to highlight the beautiful reds and make them really pop! A true Valentine's Day signature color!
Behold the session here, as photographed by Sweetly Stitched Images:
So sweet and cheerful! Makes me want to throw a Valentine's Day bridal shower! Love all the details, from the invitation, to the bouquet, and the confetti. The model is gorgeous, by the way! The sweets bar is totally yummy, too!
Thanks to Christina from Sweetly Stitched Images for sending this shoot our way! Happy Valentine's Day, all!
