Styled Shoots

A Super Sexy, Super Inspirational, Lace in the Desert, Australian Styled Shoot...

HilaryCamPhotography_p2744997427_big.jpg

When I first saw this photograph, I felt like she could have been me. A woman walking through the desert, no clear path or direction, but definitely going somewhere. That's exactly how I've felt over the past few months. On a fucking mission, without a totally clear path or straight-forward direction, but definitely going somewhere. I've taken a break from showcasing weddings + styled shoots because I have been mission-bound (oh, you'll see!!), but without the clarity I'm used to, until now. Things are coming into focus, and it's a huge relief. Actually, it's a gigantic relief. Ever felt that way, bridey? Perhaps with your wedding planning? Where something just clicks, and boom... You're through the hard part and you know it can only get easier from this point forward?

All of that said, I thought I'd start sharing weddings + shoots again with a motherfucking BANG!!! I am OB SES SED with Hilary Cam Photography. He knows it, I know it, we both know it. I absolutely LOVE his take on beauty and aesthetics. I love how he takes something simple and beautiful, and turns it into a complete eye orgasm (yeah... I just said that!). Hilary said that he was, "inspired by the idea of the modern bride who bucks tradition, who’s not afraid of colour and loves the festival scene." Bridey, I urge you to take TONS of inspiration from this gorgeous shoot.I used the word orgasm, so obviously I mean fucking business! Enjoy every.single. aspect of this shoot! I 100% did!

See what I mean about the eye orgasm? Simple, but not really. Right? A Moroccan inspired feast with dried fruit + nuts, and a delicious cake dripping in orange blossom and rose water syrups, topped with petals.

A Stranger Things Inspired Boudoir Sess Rockin' a Total Badass Babe!

Hughes_Na_JessicaHuntPhotography_KaityBoudoirSubmissionSCWeddingPhotographer201879_low.jpg

Bridey, meet Kaity. Kaity is amongst the bravest women I know. This FABULOUS lady did something so spectacular, so daring and so fucking amazing that she has inspired me to join her in her badassery, and make it a point to do something that scares me. Could be something little or something big, but I'm just going to fucking do it! I'll write about it when I'm done and then we can talk about what you did that scared the shit out of you! Anyway, this post is about more than a badass babe killing a Stranger Things boudoir shoot. It's about conquering self-deprecating behavior, owning who you are and running with that determination to kill our inner beast and replace it with self-love and acceptance.

Kaity said, "To me, self-love was forcing myself to come to terms with who I was, and committing to the fact that I was worthy, regardless of the worth that I was assigned by other parties. My assignment was forgiving myself for not meeting standards that were grossly unattainable, despite setting them myself. It was understanding that one bad interaction did not mean I was incapable of romance, and did not mean that I was unlovable... I had spent so long living under the “if you just lost some weight” mentality. As if a number on a scale would somehow give me the validation to be respected? I got this idea that I could love myself just like I was, in a body that I swore wasn’t worthy. Acting on the idea was an entirely different venture." A MEN sister! Bridey, please remember to love yourself NO MATTER WHAT, because you are worth it. We are ALL worth it... Stop letting fear paralyze your dreams, and go live them! Now, go get inspired by Kaity's awesomeness.

Christmas Might be Over, But the Inspiration Doesn't Have to Be!

BreeannaKayPhotography_38_low.jpg

See those rose gold sequins? Aren't they gorgeous? I've seriously been obsessed with everything rose gold these days. You too? And this styled shoot? Well, let's just say that there is PLENTY to be obsessed with, starting with the rose gold, sequined wedding dress! Yup! A rose fucking gold wedding dress!! Did your mind just go crazy for a sec? Did you start daydreaming about wearing a rose gold wedding dress? I did! Right? Because it's sensational. And the rest of the details throughout this dreamy post? So cool. Just wait until you see the kickass flowers, delish Moscow Mules and the sweets! OMFG, the sweets! The cake! SO rockstar!

Bridey, this shoot embodies what I call winter warmth. Are there some Christmasy elements? Sure, but it's so fabulous because it reminds us that while Christmas might be over (Um, thank God... I was so done!!) it's still okay and pretty awesome to incorporate muted components of Christmas into a winter wedding. They don't have to be in your face to be beautiful, and these elements will add so much texture to the décor. Anyway... Enjoy this post, and be sure to pull some super cool inspiration for your wedding!

Wow! LOVE the invitations! And even though it's early, I'm craving a Moscow Mule.

A Game of Thrones Wedding Disguised as a Styled Shoot

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT238_low.jpg

Bridey, see that stunningly gorgeous redhead in the exquisite wedding dress and sparkly shoes? That's Danyelle. And when the photograph was taken, Danyelle had no idea that moments later she was to walk down the aisle of her wedding disguised as a styled shoot; a shoot which she feverishly designed, handcrafted and created with her bare hands. How? Well, as the Creative Director at Fête & Frivolty Events (the planners who brought you this amazing underwater shoot!), Danyelle is surrounded with an extremely talented group of professional event planners, and these event planners surround themselves with only the best vendors. Vendors who have such a deep respect for the ladies of FFE, that they banded together to take part and contribute to a surprise of a lifetime. A surprise wedding!

The two cent tour? Teddy + Danyelle had a simple courthouse wedding three years ago. But, because Teddy is fucking awesome, he wanted to surprise her with an over-the-top wedding; one as fabulous as she is... So, he called Amanda (of FFE), and the planning began FOR 2019. But, while Danyelle working on an inspiration board for Fête's winter styled shoot, she had an epiphany and proclaimed, “This is it!”. She told Amanda that if she could choose any style, any look, any theme for her perfect wedding it would be EXACTLY like the Game of Thrones inspired winter styled shoot they had already begun calling ‘Winter is Coming’. And so it began... How? How did they pull it off? Well, I'll fill you in on the rest of the deets as you take in this A MAZ ING post... So, GO SCROLL, BRIDEY!!!!

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT1_low.jpg

The faux fur, the black invites, the blue... WOW!

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT86_low.jpg

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT89_low.jpg
Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT90_low.jpg
Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT176_low.jpg

Something sneaky? Amanda (of FFE) told Danyelle they couldn’t find a model and pleaded with her to alter the wedding dress her grandmother had bought her (the one she was saving for her "real" wedding to Teddy). Her intuitive grandmother, bought the dress for Danyelle when she and Teddy first began dating, convinced he was "the one" for Danyelle. Ma’am passed before she could see them wed – so the dress was a way of carrying a part of her grandmother’s love down the aisle when she couldn’t be there in person.

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT179_low.jpg
Donaldson Jones.005.jpeg
Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT69_low.jpg

Teddy. Teddy. Teddy. You are the fucking MAN! I love your sneaky-awesomeness! 

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT82_low.jpg
Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT78_low.jpg
Donaldson Jones.002.jpeg

Danyelle created and styled every element of what she thought was a styled shoot. From her handcrafted shoulder piece & belt, to the Game of Thrones house symbols on the wine glass favors, to the dragon’s egg votive holders... This girl redesigned an oversized throne chair and created a ceremony set! She sewed, painted, sculpted, and hammered away for four months on the DIY decorative elements. And Teddy worked alongside her!

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT96_low.jpg

Like... I am blown away with this décor! BLOWN AWAY! I love it because it's dark and fabulous.

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT15_low.jpg
Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT92_low.jpg

Bridey, you know I preach being nice while planning your wedding? Well, the same goes for us (as in, event planners)! Because of the solid relationships Fête & Frivolity Events has within their network, and the respect they show for one another, service fees were drastically reduced or waived entirely... Simply because they were inspired by Teddy’s love for his wife and the opportunity to play a part in their love story.

Donaldson_Jones_BrittanyBarclayPhotography_GOT136_low.jpg

Teddy, I can only imagine what you're thinking in these pics!!!

An Amazingly Bold, Art Deco Meets Vaudeville Styled Shoot Filled with Some Seriously Awesome "Entertainment"

TuanBampCo_tuanbcologantheatre055_low.jpg

Bridey, I have been DYING to share this styled shoot with you! Like DY ING to share this... Not only because it's fucking FAB U LOUS, but it's colorful and unique and striking and cool and different and kickass and contains a shitload of inspiration! And, did I mention that there's a contortionist? A FUCKING contortionist! OMG, can you imagine if you had a contortionist at your wedding? Oh, and there's a bearded lady and a burlesque dancer and a cake that makes me want to dig out my pasty bag and start decorating! I.CAN'T.EVEN.

Look, bridey, do I think it's realistic for you to incorporate all of these fascinatingly surprising elements into your wedding plans? Not at all, but I dare you to give yourself creative license to have fun, and break out of the traditional wedding planning mold. You have my permission to go a little cray... Seriously, just think about the conversations your guests would be having about a burlesque dancer or contortionist taking over the bar at your wedding? Combine that with a photo booth? Yeah... And, just like that, your wedding goes from standard to stupendous. Think about it... Enjoy, and be inspired!

TuanBampCo_tuanbcologantheatre002_low.jpg

A Steamy Boudoir Sess or an Insanely Awesome PEACOCK Styled Shoot, or Both?!

JuanZambranoPhotography_PeacockRobe10_low.jpg

I know what you're thinking, bridey. You're 100% thinking that this is a sexy + steamy boudoir shoot, right? Well, not quite... Although it definitely feels like it could be a boudoir shoot based on the photograph above and several of the pics below, it's actually an edgy styled shoot with loads of peacock inspiration running through it's veins! And, it all starts with the bride's hair (and nails too)! OMFG, just look at her FABULOUS locks!!! I can't even... Bridey, if you're looking for some fucking cool inspiration, executed in a fantastically classy + fun way, then today is the best day ever!

We've talked endlessly about how you want your wedding to be different, and stand out from the others, but in order to do that you must adjust your thinking from ordinary to extraordinary! You must act on your passions and whatever you do, don't be afraid to be driven by fearless ideas!! C'mon! Use this shoot as inspiration to tap into your inner peacock, or whatever drives you + your sig other! Dare to have your wedding be the wedding which compels your peers to outdo... If they can! And this shoot? Well, it's a great way to see how to rock a theme in a way that's unique + enchanting! Enjoy!

A Styled Shoot with a Little Water, Air, Earth, but No Fire!

WingsofGloryPhotography_finaledits0180_low.jpg

Bridey, drop whatever it is that you're doing, and check out this amazing styled shoot! Even if you're not a 'get married on the water' kind of girl, you won't want to miss this! Because if nothing else, it's fucking amazing with amazing details and the most amazing wedding cake I've seen in a very long time. But, not just that... This shoot is plain ol' pretty with a lot of prettiness to look at!

I love the idea of adding "props" to your wedding to make it more authentically "you". If you and your sig other do a lot of traveling, then a globe makes perfect sense! And the plane? Hell yeah! But, bridey, the reality is, don't be afraid to do what YOU (and your sig other) want to do. Because the beauty really is in the details... And the details are what make you two the collective YOU! Now, go... Enjoy this lite and fun styled shoot!

A Sexy and Stylish "Married in the Mud" Styled Shoot

A Sexy and Stylish "Married in the Mud" Styled Shoot

I'm feeling awfully playful today, bridey, which is totally awesome for you, because I am about to share a pretty kickass styled shoot with you. SO awesome, that, like, I.CAN'T.EVEN with the wedding dress, and all of the other delicious details showcased below. Bridey, if you rock some seriously gigantic jewels (I just cannot bring myself to say, "balls" and jewels is all I could come up with...), then I DARE you to be bold enough to wear a damn sexy dress like this on your wedding day. OMG... Can you imagine? I mean... Perhaps you could cover up the tatas with a nude faux bra, but either way, a statement would be made!

A Beautifully Dark, Exotically Edgy, and Exceptionally Glamorous Styled Shoot with a Hint of Midnight Romance

I'm not in a dark place. I'm not sad or melancholy. What I am is 100% in love with this dark and moody styled shoot. And, OMG do I wish more brides would experiment with darker hues as they plan their wedding. I mean, if it's done correctly (ahem... like this), then the darkness is sexy, and mysterious, not depressing or sad. I mean... Just look at that table! And holy shit, wait until you see the black wedding dress, the black wedding cake and black leather wedding tux!

Bridey, not only do I hope you enjoy this shoot, but I hope you're inspired by it! Inspired enough to capture some of the details and incorporate them into your own wedding! Seriously! Take a chance! I hear brides say that they want to "do something different + unique" all the fucking time. Know what? It's time to do it! Next time I see something fabulous like this, I hope it's a real wedding, not a styled shoot! Got it! Good! Go enjoy!

Damn. That's a sexy table!

I seriously don't know how to eat a pomegranate, but I keep trying!

Love those cookies!!!

STFU. I can't even with this A MAZ ING cake! Just STFU!

Gorgeous bouquet...

S.E.X.Y.

Great shot! That dress... I want it!

My mouth is watering. Like, a lot.

Thank you for sharing this dark + fabulous styled shoot with Bitchless Bride!!

A Smashingly Fabulous, Insanely Bright, and Totally Stunning Styled Shoot

Seriously, can I get a HolyShitGoddamn? OMG, I have been DY ING to share this fucking amazingly incredible, same-sex styled shoot with you, bridey! I mean... I drank the Kool-Aid and it's 100% contagious... Just look at the color on that menu! Right? And the green, sequined napkin? I'm totally ready to have a seat! Obviously, the décor is rockin', but there is some unbelievable cake porn + super creative usage of balloons (in the non-porn kinda of way!!)... Honestly, I really don't know what else to say, which is definitely a change for me, so I think I gotta just let you go and scroll... ENJOY this one, bridey! It's SO SO SO good!!

I am completely in love with this suite of invitations! Like IN-FUCKING-LOVE. If I was a note-writing kind of girl, I would need to have these...

OMG! Just look at this table!!! Love the carnations!!! And, the mismatched chairs? Amazing! Such a happy table...

WOW.

Gorgeous brides! Love the hair and makeup!

So sweet! Ready for some cake porn? Okay... Look down! I kinda made a collage!

Totally amazing!!

See what I mean about the balloons? Clever and bright!

Great hair!

A Mauve and Moody Elopement... A Truly Gorgeous Styled Shoot

I love when real life and design overlap. See the B+G above? Well, even though this is a styled shoot, Samantha and Justin are a real life couple. They are engaged, and while I'm not sure if they are going to elope or not, this is certainly a good way to get into the wedding-y mood. I mean... How cool is it that they get to practice getting married? Right? OMG, can you imagine if we all got a dry run?  Bitchless Bride would probably not exist if all of you brideys got to experience a practice wedding! Anyway... 

So, I put it out there that I was looking for a moody and edgy styled shoot or real wedding, and I jumped at the chance to show you this spectacular mash up of the two. I am OB SES SED with the color palette, the cakes and Samantha's tea length wedding dress. Seriously, I highly suggest that you steal from this shoot, bridey. Take everything! Take the cake (no pun!), take the gold and definitely take the fucking velvet linen! This shoot completely encompasses why I show you styled images... Because they dare to be different and rock the shit out of the norm. So, go! Steal!

The font + the gold... OMG!

My mouth just watered! I LOVE the mauve colored cake and the simple design!

It's like a little bit tie dyed, right? 

Gotta love the aeriel shot! 

Bridey, there is no reason you can't dress up your sweetheart table with velvet linen and fancy chairs! This is 100% an idea worth stealing!

Lovin' the gold flatware.

Gorgeously real shot of the B+G!

See what I mean? That dress! Totally LOVE IT! And Justin? So dapper! 

Thank you to all of the FAB vendors who teamed up to give us such great inspiration! And, thanks for sharing with Bitchless Bride!

A Darky and Moody, 1920s Glam Wedding Inspired Styled Shoot

I have to say, I love when I receive a styled shoot, with a real couple! It adds such a cool element to the overall feel of the photographs! And these two? Well, they love to play dress up! I mean... They love playing dress up so much that when it came time to select their wedding attire, they did so in such a way that they would have many more opportunities and occasions to wear their garb again. For instance? A fucking cool, dark and moody styled shoot.

Bridey, there is so much inspiration encapsulated within this shoot that if you don't walk away with something, you're coo coo! It's such a fun twist on the norm! So, go enjoy!

I'm obsessed with sparkly linen and the pearls! OMG!

Notice the Oujia board? Right? I love that it's not in my face, but it's there!

Yum! I love the dark and delicious, DIY bundt cake! It's definitely a nice marriage between elegant and spooky... 

I had to show this to you again. I think I really need a fork!

Amazing bouquet!

Fabulous hair! LOVE the headpiece

Feel the sparks? And, feel the eeriness of of the surroundings? CREEPY!

Love this shot!!!

Thank you for sharing this amazing styled shoot with Bitchless Bride! I love the spooky sexy combo!
