summer punch bridal

Today I am SO excited to share these colorful images I shot with a talented, talented group of ladies a month or two back!

FIRST – Check out the feature on Ruffled! Yay! SO fun.

I love getting together with other wedding professionals and coming together to bring a vision to life. I created a fun mood board for a ‘Summer Punch’ session. The goal was to make it such: simple and pretty (with some punchy colors). I put together a fun paper crepe fringe backdrop (you can learn how to make that here on Oh Happy Day) and a swing! Aren’t swing’s just the most whimsical and romantic things for a bride to be on? That’s something that I really love to show through my work – whimsy. Even from the beginning of learning about photography, I connected so quickly with other whimsical artists I looked up to (Tim Walker, Annie Leibovitz, Rene Magritte to name just a few…). OK so I’ll stop rambling about my art obsession. Anyways, I love that in this shoot, it shows that a few simple props and even a simple dress (that dress is a $30 Khol’s purchase) can make something beautiful with all the right things and people!

I want to thank Adrienne from The Bloom of Time for the amazing bouquet and flower crown, Annie Presley for her bangin’ make-up skills, Lauren Prohaska for the beautiful soft hair waves, Ashley Lovett of Any Lovely Thing for her gorgeous face and modeling, and Jessica Bradburn for helping set-up the scene, and her attention to detail while I shot. Thank you thank you for jumping on board with this one ladies! I highly suggest anyone reading this post to check out ALL their talent. Lauren also created a cool DIY on how to create summer waves – great for all you bride’s out there who want to do something pretty for your shower or rehearsal! Check out the full DIY on Ruffled and then I’ve got a few at the end of the post. Enjoy!
