I adore small weddings – the intimacy with guests, the attention to detail, and the happy vibes that come with a low-stress day. In March we had the opportunity to photograph our first true elopement: no guests, just bride and groom in a cabin up north. And that got me thinking about all the possibilities of what a modern wedding can be (without the pressure to wear a princess gown and layers of bling). Weddings beginÂ out of love and end in a promise, and that is beautiful all on its own.
Styled shoots are an opportunity for creatives in an area to collaborate with one another to try outÂ new ideas or explore their interests. Along with a few very talented people, we decided to put together our very own Green Bay Elopement at the new Gather on Broadway event space downtown. I’ve always had an interest in the structured, sleek styles of mod 1960s clothing (as do a few of my collaborators!) so it seemed like a perfect fit. The styled shoot gave us time to play, try out new things, and refresh our creativity at the start of wedding season. We are so thrilled with the final results and cannot say enough about the incredible people we worked with! You rock!
