I got the photos today courtesy Sarah Ainsworth Photography
from the vintage styled bridal shoot we collaborated on several weekends ago. Sarah has written about the shoot on her blog and you can read her take and see a full list of vendor contributors here.
Sarah was already well into the planning of the session when Danielle (Sunday Hatch) and I got roped in. Sarah knew that she wanted to showcase vintage styling to use for her portfolio, since it’s so trendy right now. She also hoped to use these photos to encourage her prospective bride clientele to think outside the box when scheduling their bridal portraits. Through a mutual friend, Danielle and Sarah were connected, and Danielle ended up offering her vintage style Jim Hjelm dress and modeling skills. Then I came on board to help from a design angle, and Danielle and I pooled our vintage materials to create a simple & elegant backdrop for Sarah’s shoot. More on our pooled resources later…..
We braved the heat and humidity to pull it all together in one day on some private property just southwest of Houston. We started gathering and organizing early afternoon and worked straight until dark. Sarah had lined up some really great people to help out. The makeup & hair artist, Leah Nygren of Your Beautiful Face Co, was so talented in particular.
The Hubbies, Tim and Rob, also did a good bit of sweaty labor, hanging the windows and carting the heavier pieces of furniture from here to there. Actually, everyone did a good bit of sweating, but I don’t think any of us had as much fun as Tim and Rob did trying to figure out (the engineers that they are) how to hang those windows without a ladder. We’ll never know…. and probably don’t want to!
