The creative process for this shoot really started with the lake property at Driftwood Point. This rustic wooded lake property on beautiful Lake C'DA in Idaho has a very modern Pacific NW feel. I just loved the idea of the handsome lumberjack sort of look that has been very trendy right now for men in a wedding. How rugged and sexy! I loved brainstorming what kind of bride this man would wed...a woodnymph-a romantic, beautiful girl. The flowers would be lush and bright with fern and succulents, the staging romantic and glam combined with rustic elements. We incorporated driftwood and some of the pink rocks from the lakeshore on the cake (trimmed with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt!). I absolutely loved how everything came together. I had an amazing team: Florals by Dragon Floral Design; MUA Julie Farley at The Make-up Studio; Hair by MattieKay Tull for House of POp; Jewelry by Pounder's Jewelry; Menswear by Jos A Banks; Gown by Bridal Collections; Cake by Batch Bakeshop; Paper by Mango Ink; Rentals by A to Z Rentals and The Attic Vintage Rentals; models Savana Fredericks and Sam Ouimet.
Can I just say I have the coolest job ever? I dream up a photoshoot, hustle around, make a million phone calls, plead with people to help, send a bunch of emails, pin a bunch of photos on Pinterest, drink a lot of coffee, think a lot...and sweat and haul around my equipment. But then...it's just so cool! I dreamed up this concept, made it happen, shot it and someone else liked it too! Thank you Apple Brides for publishing little ol' me! Feels good. So grateful to all of the vendors who helped me out: Veda Lux-Summer Hightower; Julie Farley-The Make-up Studio; Rose and Blossom Floral; and of course Emily Erickson, Model.
Taking photos is just one of the ways I can express my creativity and appreciation for unique beauty. I am a visual person, and I truly enjoy opening my eyes and capturing life. It is all art, and I revel in its creation. This is where I post my inspirations, ideas and overall brainstorms that fuel my creativity.
