Even though styled shoots can be a little unrealistic to pull off at a real wedding, I think this one has so many great ideas that are actually do-able for a really cute, chic, adorable summer wedding! Monica and Joshua are a real life engaged couple, which made this shoot SO MUCH FUN to do! They got to practice for their big day, and I got to practice shooting a fantastic hip, sweet couple!
I don't often get to shoot a bride helping a groom get ready: :)
I think Monica is going to be a STUNNING bride, no?
Megan did a fab job with the flowers!
She also did the invitations--they have such a bright, artistic, handmade feel to them:
This setup has to be one of my all time faves. For an English major, what could be better than being surrounded by books?
The shoot took place at a gem of a location that even had a little orange grove! Fresh flowers and adorable pillows accented the ceremony area:
I loved the different pillows and fabrics on each chair:
Strawberry plants, books, and cute wallpaper, oh my!
Seriously, how could this be cuter?
Other than to be like this:
This couple is just so dang cute!
Yay, almost married!
Something about this one just gets me:
And this one:
The table setup was so fresh and fun! A flowy table cloth, some bright yellow flowers, a bowl of berries, a jug of milk, and a little cake: perfection!
Even the glasses were darling. And look at that napkin!
I want this photo to hang in my house--I might have to frame it:
Ahhh, don't you just want to take a bite?!
Megan is SO CREATIVE! Look at how she did the table numbers. They must have taken her ages, but wow, what a crazy cool effect!
That orange grove makes a sweet couple stand out:
Who wouldn't sneak a few bites of the cake?
Erica always does an incredible job with her cakes. She can come up with something to suit any style, and in a delicious way!
Another book display from Megan. Megan, please come do a project at my house!
Carrying the bookshelves and books theme throughout the whole area:
I just love this couple! They are so cute and natural together, and so photogenic!
And so in love:
A little funny, and a little sweet:
Did I mention cute?
Girls, thanks for such a fab shoot, and brides, I hope you can take some inspiration from this little concept!
