Fresh, whimsical, and airy were the three words that came to our minds when planning this shoot. Abbey, from Abbey Leigh Photography and I are both natural light photographers so we knew we wanted to capture the outdoors and it’s natural ambiance. We are both inspired by the bohemian, eclectic vibe and wanted to step outside of our comfort zone of hay bales and open fields. When we stumbled upon this private residence, with it’s lush greenery and large trees, we knew we had found the perfect setting for our garden party inspired stylized shoot. Choosing a real life couple in love made photographing our models, Julie and Ruben, effortless. Their natural love for each other oozed from every corner of the shoot. Julie’s Casablanca lace appliqué dress was hand picked precisely for its airy feel and elegant, yet modern appeal. Ruben’s simple, groom’s attire complemented the fresh elopement we were going for. Pulling colors only nature could provide, definitely added to the overall simplicity and the inspiration of the shoot.
