Wanting to do something different to the vintage-loving crowd, wedding photographer
June Cochran opted to have her latest project shot inside, at night and with a warm cosy vibe. This idea but juxtaposed nicely with bright pops of colour and daring and edgy flower arrangements. “Pretty much every single stylized wedding shoot I’ve seen is at magic hour, outdoors in a field, and as vintage and pastel as it gets”, she writes. “That’s beautiful, but I wanted to shake it up and push it out it the box.”
“With the help of some amazing Colorado wedding vendors, we created a beautiful and modern idea for brides that rock. We were first inspired by an outdoor reception shot of a table with candles and brightly colored floral centerpieces. The theme took off from there by stepping outside of the typical outdoor, pastel palette, sunset, vintage style wedding shoots.”
“Our over arching theme was an Indoor night-time forest wedding with our base foundation being our venue, the romantic and highly popular Denver restaurant,
Beatrice & Woodsley. This idea turned into reality and even included a custom designed wedding dress, made for just $100! This shoot was anything but typical, and everything magical.”
Gorgeous. Thank you to June and her team for sharing with us today.

Flower Beard Bridals with Harnaam Kaur
June 30, 2015
Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which meant she started growing a beard from aged 11. Battling to remove her hair every day, and bullied at school, she started to self harm and considered suicide. Harnaam is now a body-confidence and anti-bullying activist and she fully embraces her unique look and hopes to encourage others to do the same. So when this bridal shoot using Harnaam as the model was submitted to me I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement!
Neutral & Neon Bridal Style
January 11, 2013
Inspiration can hit you anywhere, and for wedding photographer Lindsay Hite, it came while flicking through a fashion magazine. "The trend neutral colors paired with neon in fashion really spoke to me", she told me. "I love the almost surprising contrast between subtlety and outspokenness and was curious about how it would work in a bridal setting. I drew inspiration from far flung corners - from Lana del Rey's flower crowns, to bright bold colors of childhood celebrations and vintage circuses."
Colourful, Folky Wedding Shoot with Affordable, DIY Ideas
November 8, 2014
When it comes to me accepting submissions to feature on this blog, I always ask myself the same two simple questions: Will my readers like this? And are there ideas in here that people can actually apply to their own weddings? More and more these days, I'm only able to answer yes to both these questions with the real weddings I'm sent. However sometimes, just sometimes, a styled wedding shoot fits the bill as well.
Winter Forest Bridal Shoot

Are you planning to have a bridal shoot? It's actually something I'm seeing less and less of these days, but if you're so inclined, I think they're so much fun! Hell, I loved doing them so much that I started a blog so I had somewhere to publish them!
Two Brides Are Better Than One: Barbie and Kendra Get Married
June 15, 2016
It usually it takes a couple of months for something to be published on the blog after I receive a submission for a feature (yes, my wait list is huge!) but when Barbie and Kendra's perfect pink pride-filled shoot landed in my inbox yesterday, and in light of the utterly tragic events in Orlando this week, I knew I had to let us skip the queue and feature it as soon as physically possible.
Bohemian Forest Elopement Shoot in Montreal
May 13, 2018
Using a real couple in a styled shoot is always going to raise the game. As well as getting to see the artistic licence and creative freedom of the wedding suppliers involved, you also witness the mad love and the chemistry of the couple hitting you square in the eyes. It's a heady combination, as this shoot proves.
A Celestial Meets Earthly Styled Shoot
Taken by Sarah
April 30, 2018
What's really beautiful and original about this shoot is how it has cleverly positioned lots of opposites - the hard textures of the geometric ornaments versus soft textures like the velvets, and the earthly rock crystals and smoke next to the heavens and galaxies depicted in the tablecloths. It's created a styling synergy and a very interesting dynamic. Alongside these oppositional details, there are also elements that come together, echo and complement each other, creating yet another line of interest. There's way more here than meets the eye than just pretty styling for its own sake - there are connotations and depth to be experienced and inspired by.
