Wedding Photography: The Bloom Workshop Styled Shoot - Brights (Michigan Wedding Photographer)

September 2017

This vignette from the wedding workshop I participated in was probably my favorite. Orange and blue aren't colors that you would typically see together but it goes to show that it's all about the execution. The bride and groom models were younger and a little more nervous in front of the camera but they looked absolutely gorgeous so we made it work. I loved the less polished look and the big, fun and overflowing bouquet. Also, the table set up was so much fun. The candles had been lit for awhile and the wax was trying to blow away but it created a pretty cool effect.

I borrowed the "groom" while everyone else was fawning over the bride and got a few of him. We got to use a couple different locations in the area for photos and I love how they turned out!

Wedding Photography: The Bloom Workshop Styled Shoot - Muted Colors (Michigan Wedding Photographer)

September 2017

Back in September, I took part in a workshop at Greencrest Manor in Battle Creek. The ladies had three gorgeous wedding vignettes set up by some great vendors from West Michigan. I got to photograph the details and the models, and I'm excited to get to share them finally! Wedding season got REALLY busy and I had my own weddings to work on, but as the year ended, so did my editing obligations and I was able to work on these.


The first vignette was in neutral tones, and featured some gorgeous, wispy flowers and tasty macarons. The models were beautiful people, and were great despite the sun and heat. And seriously, Greencrest is BEAUTIFUL. I hope I get the chance to do my own wedding there someday, there were just so many perfect photo locations, even in the full sun! Even though the set up wasn't mine, the photos were all taken by me in my style. I did take a few shots when other photographers posed the models, but I stepped up and did quite a bit of that myself. I'm so brave ;)


Check out the first set up, and credit to all the vendors below!
