“Whirling Turban” Lifestyle shoot with The Brides Cafe

posted by Kelly

We were so honored to be asked by Janie at The Brides Cafe to come photograph another lifestyle shoot. Back in the fall we photographed a collaborative effort with Janie and Courtney of Merriment Events, called“Stitch in Time”. We had an awesome time working together so when Janie was sent some incredible vintage dresses from Whirling Turban she was ready for us to reunite for another shoot. If you are into vintage dresses you MUST spend some time on Whirling Turbans site…amazing!

We asked our friend Sara, of our recent three part series labeled “Todd and Sara” to come stand in as a model. I wish you could understand how insanely cold it was outside. It was literally only in the 20’s with a severe windchill. These girls were TROOPERS. With goosebumps and chattering teeth they soldiered on as if it were a lovely spring day.

Such a WAY COOL shoot!!!

Wow!

And every spot you picked was perfect!

And I do remember how cold it was b/c we were shooting a wedding that day. Those models did AMAZING because you would think it is a nice day out.

The picture of the two girls being “girlfriends” under the post..a rt on a double shot above, brought unexpected tears to my eyes! That’s a me and Kelly shot! Shouldn’t we be the giddy bride and bridesmaid….now we’re the mother to 5 children total. We must have that moment Kelly.

ohmygosh these pictures are sick!!! (this is my attempt at no longer using “cool” since your husband informed me that “sick” is the new “cool” which sounds so un-sick. i digress) i love them!! my favorites are the first one - they hat boxes are amazing!! - & the b&w at the cafe counter, the one upclose of sarah’s hair & the one of her looking away while the other girls back is to the camera. love them!!!!! so great

lovely photos, but worth noting that true vintage styling doesn’t include fully open toe, strappy shoes. shoes were either peep toes or pumps back in the day. great dresses!
