Guys, this shoot was FUN! I was contacted by Rachel Lynn Photography to create a "vintage rock and roll" themed wedding suite for her upcoming shoot. She wanted hand lettered, textural wedding invitations with lots of juicy reds, lush burgundies, rich golds, all the goods stuff! I jumped at it! I mean, wouldn't you? Just look!
(Oh and psst! This shoot was featured on Green Wedding Shoes!)
Okay I'm starting with a photo of the invitations I created for this one. Not to toot my own horn, but this is seriously one of my personal favorites. The invitation isn't your standard 5x7 flat invitation, no sir. I went all out here and created a record album out of paper complete with marbled "record" and illustrated butterfly cover. I love how it turned out!
Okay on to the rest of the shoot!
I mean look at these two. Our models here just knock my socks off. And the styling is superb! I can almost hear Eric Clapton singing in the background.
I wasn't kidding about the styling.
I really went for it here with layers of textural colors, mattes and metallics. Our photographer did a fabulous job catching the contrasts on these - which isn't easy to do with paper and paint!
I love when my papers are used in fun and unexpected ways in the photography. These gorgeous organic rings by The Fox and Stone are sitting pretty on a bit of calligraphy! So exciting!
And I'll finish up this one with a bit of dessert! The textures here are rocking my world, pun intended! Gorgeous job, Sweet Gems Bakery!
