Red floral dream

Featured on: Swooned Magazine

 

 

This red glam styled shoot was inspired by a gorgeous red lace gown. We went for a glam look while incorporating intricate masquerade masks ( these masquerade masks are made by hand ). This session was a red floral dream. This session is the perfect inspiration for a bride to be looking to incorporate red into her color scheme.

Little White Dress

I am so excited to introduce Lauren Griffin, the stylist behind Little White Dress She offers personalized wardrobe styling for all the guest-of-honor moments surrounding your wedding. I had the pleasure of photographing Lauren and soon you will be seeing an amazing collaboration that we have been working on together.

http://www.shoplittlewhitedress.com

Meet Lauren Griffin—I first fell in love with bridal fashion while working in retail– brides-to-be would come in with a laundry list of outfits they needed for their pre-wedding events. This was my favorite! I happily styled each look and even pulled out my phone to suggest “the perfect shoes” from another brand our boutique. Shhh! 

 
After several more years working in the fashion industry, I was inspired by my own wedding planning to start Little White Dress. I found that between cake tastings, seating charts and most importantly, enjoying being engaged, there was little time left to find the perfect outfit for each event.
 
I knew I couldn’t be the only stylish bride overwhelmed with finding the perfect outfit for my engagement shoot, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, etc.! So, Little White Dress was born! I offer personalized wardrobe styling for all the guest-of-honor moments surrounding your wedding.
 
The styling process is fun and simple! First, we’ll go through the style consultation, which is a combination of a style survey, social media share (Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), and conversation (via phone, skype or over coffee if you’re local). By this time, I’ll have a really good idea of your personal style, favorite dresses and silhouettes, wedding decor, etc. Depending the service you choose, we’ll work together to come up with the perfect look for your event!
 
It’s my goal to help you feel comfortable, confident and stylish leading up to your big day! Stayed tuned for a fun giveaway!! You won’t want to miss this!!
 

Jenny McQueen - I have recently started working with a wardrobe stylist for shoots as well, and I’m really excited to see other photogs doing this!!

Parker - Thanks to your blog post I just spent 30 minutes on Shop Little White Dress’s website! A wedding stylist, such a great idea for brides (and grooms) who are like me, not pros at styling. For such a huge and important life event, you want to look your best. Thanks for showcasing this wedding stylist, the photographs are beautiful and I love the concept!

Winterthur Gardens

Winterthur Gardens is one of the most beautiful outdoor gardens to have an elegant wedding affair. I was so excited to hear that Michelle and Dan were having both there ceremony and reception at Winterthur. From the gorgeous gardens to the reflecting pond it makes for the most beautiful photographs. This Winterthur garden wedding was nothing short of Winterthur’s usual genius, due to the rain the staff quickly moved the ceremony indoors and created an absolutely magical ceremony. Luckily, Michelle and Dan chose to have a first look reveal and we were able to capture an array of photographs of the two of them together prior to the thunderstorms. I am so excited to share this stunning garden wedding. This is the perfect inspiration for brides looking for a gorgeous outdoor wedding. Take a look at these beautiful photographs and I promise you will not be disappointed!!
