I don't always shoot film, but every time I do I think, "Why don't I do this more often!?" And then I am reminded by the invoice how expensive it is to get film professionally developed. Sometimes though, it's totally worth it. Film has such a timeless feel, such depth, and beautiful rich colors that I love. Beyond that though film forces me to slow down, think every shot through and curate my images before I even take them, which in such a digital age is hard to do sometimes.
For this styled shoot I teamed up with local vendors here in Bend, Oregon to create a easy going classic style with a mix of warm wood tones, brushed gold elements, creamy neutrals, and pops of color in the natural setting and gorgeous floral arrangements.
I could not have created these images without the hard work from these wonderful vendors:
Florals: A Native Bloom
Gown: Bella Brides
Cake: Foxtail Bakeshop
Hair and Makeup: Elizabeth Elle Artistry
Invitations: The Wilkinson Loft
Thank you for bringing this vision to life and I hope we all get to work together again very soon!
