A Gatsby Styled Shoot

Gatsby styled shoot 12-2018 (133 of 184).jpg

Every year about two to three times a year we collaborate with other wedding vendors to create a fun unique styled shoot. Styled shoots allow us creatives to step out of the box to use our creative side to full potential. This shoot we went for something sleek, like an old Hollywood theme. With putting this shoot together we kept our colors and theme on our mind. Once picking the beautiful long sleeve dress from White Traditions Bridal in Saint Charles the theme was screaming more of a Gatsby vibe. Katie and Hillary the florist and even coordinator used white feathers for accents with the theme which made perfect sense for the Gatsby theme to be the final end to our product. This shoot was something that was dear to my heart I love the vintage sleek style. The location was held at Sunflower Hill Farm a brand new venue located in Defiance, Missouri. The venue is gorgeous with a sleek modern barn to a beautiful open floor home that over looks the bluffs in Defiance. We are thanking all the vendor team from the bottom of our hearts to make this beautiful styled shoot come to life.

Air Force engagement

Meet Alex and Elizabeth a couple madly in love with one another. A few weeks ago I received an email for an inquiry for an engagement shoot. The inquiry was from Elizabeth, she told me she was wanting engagement pictures taken sometime in March and that she wanted the location to be at her finance's base (Scott Airforce base). When I read that email I was ecstatic because I love capturing military couples! After a few emails we put together a date and time for pictures to be taken at the base. Sunday I met them across the street at a local Subway. When they pulled in they had their four legged pup and their best friend to help with the pup during their pictures. This was also my first time going on a base EVER. I was super excited for this engagement session. I hopped in the car with them and we checked in through security to get on the airforce base. Once we got on base I could not help myself but to look around, the base was super cool! Once we got to our location I got to chat with them a bit about what they do etc. Come to find out Elizabeth and Alex are both pilots! HOW COOL! I was super amazed by that and I knew I had to incorporate as many images as I could with the jets. We walked around base taking pictures in the hanger with their four legged friend and pictures of the two as a couple. During there engagement there was no doubt that these two were really meant to be besides the fact that they are both pilots. These two could not stop smiling and giggling, that is true love my friends! The session lasted about two hours and with two outfits. Alex wore his flight suit for half of the images while Elizabeth had a super cute navy blue dress. Alex and Elizabeth are not from Missouri they are both from Texas. This October the two will say " I do" in Dallas, Texas. Congrats to Alex & Elizabeth!
