Styled Shoots

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

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.

An Insanely Romantic, Super Glam, City Chic, Styled Shoot

I seriously don't know what to look at first... The incredibly lush florals around the gold chiavari chairs or the black, sequined linen or the luscious amber locks hanging from the shoulders of the beautiful woman wearing the beautiful dress or the faux hawk the male model is rockin', OR OR OR!!! Right? Bridey, this styled shoot is so fucking awesome that I can hardly contain myself. I want them to redo it so that I can be the girl model and completely immerse myself in the details. And, I haven't even mentioned the glitter donuts. Did you hear me? I said, "GLITTER DONUTS"!! Actually, they're PINK GLITTER DONUTS!! OMG... STFU!!

Bridey, there is so much juiciness encapsulated in this shoot that I am almost at a loss for words. ALMOST... With every scroll or roll of your thumb, it just keeps getting better and better. So, allow me, to allow you, to start scrolling... Enjoy!

Imagine if this was your place setting? WOW!

Hold please... See her dress? Whoa... The side flower? So fucking cool!

G.L.I.T.T.E.R D.O.U.N.T.S

Oh my gawd!!!!!

That dress... WOW!

Such a great shot!

No, I don't know where they are or what they're laying on, but I don't care. It's too good...

Drink up!

Super Stylish Sunday ~ All That Glitters Should be Gold!

I love everything about this shoot. What can I say? I guess I'm in a gold place right now. Seriously, I've been sporting my grandmother's gold antique wedding band, and rockin' a ton of gold accessories these days. So, it's no surprise that when this submission came in, I (Wow!! OMG! I almost just used a really dirty phrase to describe how I felt)... AHEM... I got really excited. I think it's pretty obvious why... Because these photographs are fucking awesome! I really love the black and gold. Like REALLY love it. I'm also a big fan of the print on the linen. And not just the print, but the texture! Yeah, bridey, the black print is actually velvet. Right??? (I'm totally refraining from any velvet jokes right now.)

Anyway, the other day, my mom asked me why I share styled shoots on BB. Totally valid question (for somebody outside of the industry), so I told her that wedding inspiration is half the battle. Once a bride finds her path; her inspiration... then her wedding journey comes to life and starts to fall into place. For instance, you, bridey, may browse these photographs and suddenly decide that you are as excited as I am about gold and black, and BAM! A fucking light bulb goes off, and now you can see your wedding. Know what I mean? Well, now mama BB gets it too... So, hopefully this will be your light bulb... Enjoy!

Picture this absolutely incredible table at your wedding reception. Just add some gold flatware, and BOOM! You're done... Amazing!
