Ashley | Vintage Inspired Fall Bridal Shoot

2/05/13

You GUYS. I’m sooo excited to finally be able to show off this shoot! Ashley (the beautiful bride that you may remember from her own wedding) and I had been dreaming up this styled session in her amazing Gunne Sax dress for literally a year. Me, because I really wanted to just do a fun styled shoot for my own inspiration that screamed “Marvelous Things Photography” in it’s colors and style, and Ashley because she’s owned this amazing dress but had no reason to get to wear it. So, put together, you have a match made in heaven. I’m especially¬†thrilled that the ever-wonderful Janie Medley made such a gorgeous floral crown and bouquet for us to use, and that Emily Hudspeth ROCKED the hair and make-up beyond what I even had hoped for. Annnd that my friend Bethany¬†has loaned me her amazing yellow chair.

I’m EXTRA excited that this shoot was featured on Ruffled yesterday, one of my all-time top favorite wedding blogs, and today on The Bride’s Cafe! Please take a second to go leave some comment-love for them! :)

Annnnd now, enjoy way too many of my favorites from the shoot!

And all of the gorgeous, rich tones that Janie used in the florals kill me every time. So beautiful!

    Tori, you did a MARVELOUS (haha, ironic, but true!) job with this shoot!! And it’s not just because it’s “styled”; even if she was just wearing a normal outfit, had no flowers, no chair, this would STILL be one of the best examples of your art. Your poses, angles, everything shows how good you are :).
