Kenmore Inn | Bridal Shoot

March 14, 2019

You know your week is going to be amazing and inspiring when it starts out like this! Wowzers. To say Monday was beautiful would be an understatement. I love when I get to create with other creatives and especially love when they are as detailed as I am. We all know how detailed and specific I am and I am proud to say that this style/design team surpassed all expectations for this shoot. I had an unbelievable day filled with so much fun and new friendships.

Embellished Details creates amazing floral designs and I already knew how much I loved them so when she asked if I would be up for a shoot you can bet that I didn’t hesitate for one second. Who doesn’t love a beautiful floral design? Her knowledge with florals and design are impeccable. I could photograph them all day long!

My day started out with meeting Faces by Jordan, who is STUNNING to say the least. She’s an amazing and super talented artist that I can’t wait to work with again. Her modeling skills are on point and as we worked together throughout the shoot I couldn’t stop being so thankful that we were synced. Jordan knew exactly the posing and emotion that I was looking for and made this shoot so natural but also gave it a depth we were looking for.

Antonia Baker killed this design from start to finish! I’m so grateful for her time and expertise in what she does. Her excitement for all the details and props had me giddy all day. Each time she saw me stop and pause to look at different angles and lighting she would throw in a “Hey I brought this” or “I have this also”, SWOON! Antonia brought a level of excitement and fun to the day that kept everyone wanting more. She is a breath of fresh air and so much fun to work with!

Kenmore Inn hosted us for the session and their grounds are absolutely beautiful. Located in downtown Fredericksburg this historic venue has all of the charm and elegance we wanted. The ladies here were so easy to work with and were willing to step in and help wherever was needed.

Ava Laurenne Bride has the perfect bridal gowns and the selection is endless! I have many brides who are Ava Laurenne Brides and have raved for years over their gowns, space, & staff. Katie chose a gown that was amazing! It fit Jordan perfectly and tied right into our style for the session. Elegant, modernized but still classic, & LACE! This gown was fabulous. If you haven’t checked out their shoppe you need to and make sure you ask for Katie, she is a rockstar!

A huge thank you to everyone that took part in this shoot, enjoy a few favorites below!
