I reach a certain point in the depths of winter when I find myself feeling a little despondent. There’s not as much going on because folks are hibernating. The gaps between my weddings and photoshoots feels unusually elongated which causes my creativity to take a hit. That’s why I was thrilled when Andi and I decided to collaborate and create a wedding styled shoot before the busy season really begins!
This Alice in Wonderland Wedding Inspiration Shoot was the extra oomph I needed to get my foggy brain back into photographer mode where I wanted it to be! Having the opportunity to create for the joy of creating was something that I relished, especially with such a crazy cluster of characters like these Boone, NC wedding vendors!
This enchanted and eclectic shoot that took place in the backwoods at Camp Sky Ranch was inspired by a mash-up of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Tim Burton’s take on the beloved tale, and the wedding photos that were captured was an attempt to take the stimulus in those movies and manufacture something that sparked our collective creativity through the use of unique and colorful accouterments.
Here’s what the other organizers had to say about participating in this wedding inspiration shoot.
Andi Gelsthorpe, said, “ I love making a vision come to life and thought that I had a lot to add to the visual aspect of this shoot with our inventory from Miss Match Rental. I also thought it sounded like a good challenge and the product would be really visually intriguing to me.”
Desi Parker, said, “With my degree and background in Theatre and Film, I find myself gravitating more toward projects and events that fall into the category of “a production.” While I have focused mainly on floral and styling of weddings for the past 4 years, I was dying to do something that reminded me of my days working with set design and costume departments. When Andi asked me to come on-board, I knew right away this was something I wanted my hands in! […]”
Closely working with these two talented laydehs to produce this styled wedding shoot was such a blast and I’m thankful to have been the photographer to document it all!
The shoot started with some adorableness supplied by Hank and Ruby, our ring bearer and flower girl! Hank is Andi’s little man and Ruby is Desi’s pretty princess. Aren’t they precious?! Hank thought it was so hilarious to turn his back toward me as I was shooting and poke his butt out while shouting, “TOOT! TOOT!” hahaha It was pretty comical but Ruby wasn’t nearly as amused as the adults were.
