Styled Wedding Shoot
Boy! February started off with quite the bang!
I put together my first ever styled wedding shoot at the amazing Hendricks BBQ in historic downtown St. Charles, MO. Besides myself and the venue, I was able to coordinate with 12 other AMAZING wedding vendors in the St. Louis area.
Amazing St. Louis Wedding Vendors
Once I received confirmation from Hendricks that they were on board with our using their venue for the shoot, I settled quickly on a rustic theme with rose quartz and serenity blue as our primary colors. Flowers & Weeds rocked this color scheme with an unbelievably beautiful bouquet, centerpiece, and bud vases in a variety of interesting styles. White Traditions Bridal and Ruby Francis provided amazing dresses for Jacqueline, and Porter Wilson, Goosehaven Bowties, and JM Knots got Nick looking super fly! The Cakery went big with their “nearly naked” cake, Margaux Paperie and Dana Michelle Calligraphy collaborated on hand addressed envelopes, incredibly detailed stationery (matching lining inside the envelopes anyone?) and Designs by Chas (thanks Ryan & Chas!) blew my mind with incredible tablescapes complete with wood ring place mats, two-toned silverware, custom decorated wine bottles, and antlers.
After seeing the effort and quality of my vendor collaborators and all of the flexibility and assistance I received from my models, I certainly wanted to honor their efforts by putting my best into the images. The inside of the venue was quite dark (for my camera) and needed additional lighting get me the vibe I wanted. I used my HUGE octagonal modifier with a studio strobe and the results speak for themselves!
Take a look around – I hope you enjoy the images!
If you would like to schedule a session, discuss your wedding, or collaborate on a project, shoot me a message! I absolutely LOVE working with and meeting new people so I hope to hear from you very soon!
