Romantic French Country Stylized Bridal Photoshoot

Ohio Stylized Bridal Photographer

Gown:: Lavender Bridal | Hair + Makeup:: Bambi Wagers | Model:: Jaylan Miller

I dreamt of sweet, soft tulle and an abundance of romantic colors. The gowns provided by Lavender Bridal were just the answer. Dainty details and teasing hair and makeup were the toppers of this stylized shoot. 

I love weddings for multiple reasons but one of my favorites is the bridal portraits of the bride. She has dreamt of her wedding day since she was a little girl. It's magical, whimsical and every bit of daring. I love making my brides feel like Cinderella. I feel most confident posing women and bringing out who they really are. This is why bridal portraits are meant to shine and touch a place in every women's heart.

This stylized shoot from this past summer was every bit of a dream. Enjoy. . .

Three Nails Workshop:: Bonnie + Clyde

May marks one year that has pasted since the amazing Three Nails Workshop held by Hunter Leone of  Three Nails Photography. Almost a year and a half has pasted since I first opened the email stating I had won a free seat to the workshop from the Green Wedding Shoes wedding  blog. I was beyond thankful for such an opportunity and stoked to learn from this well known talented photographer.

We headed south to Louisiana where I was welcomed with the red dirt of the south and other talented photographers amped up for learning. On the first day of the workshop, Hunter revealed we would be shooting a Bonnie and Clyde inspired bridal shoot. YAAH. Stolen money, guns, and gorgeous gowns.  

The first day consisted of taking "engagement" portraits of Bonnie (model: Marisa Marble) and Clyde (model: Sam Stanford). We arrived to the gorgeous home of The Dixie Cotton Gin, where the southern humidity was hot and the scenery was perfect. The second day of the workshop consisted of bridal portraits of Bonnie. Draped in the elegant high-end gown of Anna Campbell, Bonnie's bridal gown spewed of jaw dropping perfection. On this day, we learned about the placing of lights and getting shots with the handmade sets of Hunter. Industrial lights, factory crates and worn floor boards made this set come alive. On the third day, it was wedding time. Bonnie and Clyde with the love of two friends, pulled off the side of the road for their elopement. Gorgeous florals from La Bloom, a naked cake made by Hunter himself and a sun drenched evening was the perfect romantic setting. 

When I think back to a year ago, I can't help but smell the smells of spring from the south. The workshop was a dream like no other and I am very humbled to have been given the opportunity. Thank you to everyone who put such hard work into this workshop so photographers from all over the states can learn and grow. It's only my dream to host such fabricated workshops like this. Y'all are amazing, thank you!! Enjoy. 

Hugs, Alyssa

Trip to the West Coast:: Vegas + Cali

I was invited by Farmhouse Frocks to head out to the west coast for a large fabric convention with the team. This was the second time out west but my first time in Las Vegas and California. The bright lights of the unstoppable sin city welcomed us as we cruised up and down the Las Vegas Boulevard for the first time. We all agree that we felt on another land. Though I may never return to the city of party and lights, my first time experience was imaginable. 

While out west, we strolled 4 more hours west to the coast of La Jolla where the atmosphere and vibes are completely different. You could smell the salty ocean moisture in the air and surfers straddling waves. The free spirit of California was my favorite. We stood 3 feet away from the cutest seals ever, ate sushi and saw the largest succulents known to man! 

A special thanks to the Farmhouse Frocks ladies for allowing me to come along and snap shots. Always a treasure.

Much love, Alyssa
