I love shooting styled shoots! For me its the culmination of a vision that a team worked so hard to pull off. You can try things you wouldn't normally do during, maybe a wedding per se, but a styled shoot you can do anything...it just has to look good! We recently got to work with Cottage Hill Magazine and LeRae Events + Design and we got to team up with "Team Awesome" again...LeRae Events + Design, Kamee Kwak, Whitlee Mullis and Us.
For this shoot the main idea was centered around high school sweethearts. SO, the search was on for real highschool sweethearts that were married. Within days LeRae had found our couple Peyton and Andy. Obviously, they had known each other in highschool and dated throughout college and their story was such a heartwarming story of love. We wanted a setting that would resemble a school but not just any school, a super awesome looking school. All roads pointed to Huntington College in Montgomery AL so that was were we headed. After we got the models and location, the Team began working their magic. Kamee started by making Peyton and Andy look even more amazing by styling (hair and outfits) them to fit what we work looking for. Peyton wore a Lusan Mandongus gown provided by Ivory & White Bridal Boutique in Birmingham and Andy wore a handsome tux from Jim Massey. While they were getting ready, both Rae and Leah of LeRae went to work on styling the flowers and setting up the tablescapes. To add the final touches and make everything come together, Whitlee Mullis styled the paper suites which are super eye catching.
The final product was stunning and full of inspiration! To see the shoot in print you can order their Homecoming Issue at the Cottage Hill as well as see the other beautiful work they feature.
