Beaver Island Wedding Shoot Buffalo, NY

2014-07-01_0098I am SO excited about sharing these pictures!!! Ahhh! This was my first big styled shoot that I planned and photographed. It was a lot of hard work but so worth it in every way! I kept saying to my husband…I feel like I am planning my second wedding!!! But it was SO much fun and I got to meet so many amazing people. I found some amazing Buffalo vendors and even more than that…I made some awesome friends during this experience.

My number one question when I tell people about the shoot or they see a picture is…soo what exactly IS a wedding styled shoot? So I wanted to answer that question! Sometimes I forget you all aren’t in wedding la-la land like I am and follow 20 different wedding blogs like I do.:p A styled wedding shoot is pretty much a mock wedding usually with a unique theme to bring new ideas to brides. So you pick a style/theme that is something that is a bit out of the box and then you find a ton of vendors to help bring that vision to life! It’s a great way to connect with local vendors and get some great contacts. Also since I was the one planning and designing this shoot…I was able to pick a style that fits my brand and draws in that type of client.

The theme for this wedding was to combine blush pink, lavender, and watercolor. I wanted to take those uber girly details and mix in a little watercolor inspiration…for pretty much the most romantic and girly wedding ever. I have to say that this shoot turned out BETTER than I ever could have imagined! The first vendor I found was the dress designer and honestly I think that dress made the shoot. I mean all those layers of ruffles…I was blown away. And even more amazing than that..this designer lives in South Africa! I like could barely contain my excitement when she agreed to partner with us. After finding the dress designer..all the other vendors came together. Seriously..if anyone in Buffalo needs a vendor..I have an amazing list of them (check bottom of the page for vendors and websites). They seriously blew me away!!! Alright now on to the good stuff…
