A few months ago I decided I wanted to plan my very first styled wedding shoot during the slower part of my photography business. The first thing that popped into my head was spring colors and horses! I knew I wanted to create something clean, elegant, and pretty using gorgeous dusty blues complimented by peach and blush accents.
I am so happy that I chose the Landfall Lodge in Winchester, VA to help make this shoot come to life. Cory was so easy to work with and so helpful and I could not have asked for a better venue to collaborate with. They even let me use one of their sweet and patient horses, Daisy! She looked so beautiful and was so kind during our portraits with her.
I think my favorite part of this shoot was working with these super gorgeous models! They made the entire day so much fun and they all clicked so well right away. You would have honestly thought that they were all best friends. They laughed, joked, and made my job so easy. They even put up with me constantly saying, "ok, just one more", while snapping about 30 more instead. It's a bad habit, ha!
I can't thank everyone enough for all of their help making this day so wonderful. It takes a lot of planning to put together a styled shoot and it was honestly a lot more work than I had originally anticipated. I learned so much and met some amazing vendors throughout the entire experience, so it was absolutely worth it.
Also, a HUGE thank you to Megan Weckter with Megan Weckter Photography and her husband, Zach, for helping out and being there for this. It's always such a pleasure working with her.
And I'm so thankful for my wonderful mom, as she spent the ENTIRE day helping me and keeping me sane. <3
