Venn Workshop Wrap-up Part 2

posted by Kelly

When I say this is one of my favorite shoots ever, I mean like EVER!!! I mean no offense to all the awesomeness we’ve shot in the past. This is just different. I mean for starters….a PINK vintage wedding gown was worn. This gown is literally topped off with the most banana’s headpiece EVER thanks to Melanie at One Little Dove. Pulling this entire look off is my stunningly gorgeous friend, Kristin. Take this incredible look and plop it into a 200 year old bedroom at Pharsalia Plantation and it is pure magic.

During the morning session, while the guys were geeking out with one half of the group, Jodi and I took the other group upstairs to go over “getting ready” shots of a bride before a wedding and also how to take a more editorial shoot of a bridal session. The room was simple and clean. We let the interesting lighting and wallpaper be our background and incorporated a stunning bouquet by Petal Flower Co. at different points. I remember when Ryan and I attended Jeremy Cowart’s workshop a few years ago he did a whole photoshoot with us watching him. I found it fascinating to watch how he posed, worked the elements around him and interacted with the models. For this session, just Jodi and I shot and I think we could have gone all day if Kristin would have let us!
These are some of my favorites. Ryan grabbed Kristin for a few outside…so those are his, I won’t claim them!

It has to be said that Lynn of, Sunshower and Rainshine worked tirelessly to correct the hem and lining on this vintage beauty. Amazing job Lynn!

I don’t know that I will grow tired of looking at these. Kristin, you were 8 shades of awesome. It was so hot up there and you never complained once!
