Subtly Halloween Inspired Rooftop Shoot

Halloween is just a few weeks away so what could be a more perfect shoot to share today than this one? Inspired by Memphis (where the session took place), Halloween and autumn, the nods to the season are subtle, but effective. I’m not a massive fan of really over the top, themed Halloween shoots so this one is right up my street. In fact if I was having a Halloween wedding this is exactly how I’d style it!

“The inspiration of this styled wedding shoot was HALLOWEEN”, photographer Ashley wrote. “Kelsey (Connor and Co.) and I wanted to do a bad ass alternative bride shoot and decided it should be Halloween and it was appropriate for the time of year. We took classy and elegant and brought it to a whole new level.”

“This shoot took place in downtown Memphis, Tennessee at the Old Dominick Distillery. We hoped to evoke what Rock n Roll means to Memphis. It’s in our blood so we wanted to use a venue with deep roots. It’s unique, but with the elegance and class of the blue velvet.”

“The shoot drew in the rich colours of Fall along with the alternative feel of Halloween. It’s something we hadn’t seen and wanted to bring to life too as our favourite autumn season rolls into Memphis.”
