A Southern Styled Shoot

This past July, on my birthday actually :), I was honored to be a part of an amazing styled shoot with some of my favorite wedding vendors.

We worked diligently for months perfecting the design and perfecting the smallest details. When the day finally came, we took on the hot, humid, mosquito ridden Louisiana swamp and brought to life a shoot full of color, beauty, light and of course, Southern charm.

I want to give a huge thank you to Ruffled Blog for publishing our sweet little shoot. All of the vendors that worked on this shoot were truly amazing and their skills, I believe, shine through perfectly!

Catherine Guidry did an amazing job directing the models and the flow of the shoot. Her use of lighting and angles is impeccable and of course, she’s super fun to work with!

Mia Sandberg of Root Floral Design put together some breathtaking floral designs! The different textures and colors used were truly gorgeous! Love love love her! 🙂

Rita Goodrich of Inkling Design Studio created the perfect invitations, menus,  place cards and labels! They really tied everything together.

Brothers on the Blvd. and 7 Chicks were a blessing to us by allowing us to use some of their pieces to dress our beautiful models in. And of course, Joli Petale provided some of her amazing jewelry to provide the perfect touch to our lovely “bride”. Sarah Buteaux worked her magic with hair and makeup creating a look that was effortless but perfectly Southern.

Of course, Indulge and Jefferson Street Pub created delicious treats that represented the amazing food of Southern Louisiana perfectly!

Finally a big hug and lots of thanks to Maison Madeleine for the use of their facility and to our gorgeous and super fun models, Jarred Smith and Courtney Tribe, for participating in and making this shoot so fun!

See below for a few of my favorite shots! I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you! 🙂

Rustic Styled Shoot with Sarah Beth

When Sarah of Sarah Beth Photography approached me with her idea for a styled shoot, I was more than excited to be a part of it. Since the shoot was scheduled for the following weekend (less than a week to plan!! YIKES) we immediately got started. It was incredibly refreshing how quickly local vendors readily accepted our offer to be a part of the shoot and how helpful everyone was. With everyone on board, it was so easy to bring Sarah’s vision to life!
