This week, I am bringing you the Black and White wedding shoot from the Styled Shoots Across America Conference I attended in October. This is shoot number two of six and I hope these blog posts will help inspire other brides when planning their wedding.
I was lucky this week, and had my first adult snow day since graduating from college. As a healthcare worker, we don’t get snow days. I’ve staid in hotels so I could make commuting in the snow easier, I’ve left 2-3 hours earlier than normal in order to drive slowly through questionable weather conditions. This past year, I started teaching nursing students in addition to working in the hospital, so it was very exciting when the school closed for weather and I was able to sleep in! It was such a great feeling not having to worry about navigating icey roads in the early morning. As a result, I was able to edit another batch of photos from the conference.
Krissi and Roland are a real couple, and you can tell they are so in love with each other. Poor Roland almost got hit in the face multiple times by Krissi’s spectacular crown. It’s a gorgeous show stopper, but definitely dangerous if you are trying to kiss your significant other. They are so sweet and so good at snuggling on camera.
This shoot was held on the grounds of The Olana, just outside of Dallas, Texas. The florals were focused on gorgeous large white blooms, including roses and anemones (which I had in my wedding bouquet!). The cake had a glass mosaic effect, which gave it a very Gatsby look. These details are what pulled the entire black and white theme together, and each element was cohesive across the entire shoot (large gold hoops, white roses and greenery, clean sharp lines).
