I am SO excited to finally be sharing these amazing photos from a 70s inspired styled shoot that my friend Casey put together this past April. When she asked me and Brett to be models to help bring her daisy-themed vision to life I was pretty pumped. I mean..just look at the cuteness in her Insta feed! Not only are her pictures stunningly beautiful but she has the ability to bring out the love two people share by capturing their candid happiness on camera. I feel so lucky to have been a part of this super fun experience AND that I get to have even more beautiful photos for us to cherish forever. Casey is currently based out of the DC area but is available to travel worldwide for any of you brides to be out there looking for a photographer <3.
As I mentioned above the shoot was a retro 70s inspired elopement session that included a very simple setting with fun little daisy details. I love how the images capture us more than anything else. These pictures are such a good reflection of the real importance of weddings and marriage in general. Its the butterflies, the thrill of staring into each other’s eyes, laughing at each other’s quirks, dancing like no one is watching, and thoughtful kisses. Wedding planning and even the wedding day itself can be a super stressful process. So much so that it is sometimes easy to forget the importance of it all. I think these pictures reflect the true importance of the wedding and the marriage itself.
This leads me to the one piece of advice that I would give any soon to be engaged, recently engaged, or soon to be wed brides: always remember the love that brought you two together in the first place. This will not only make you be more realistic regarding wedding plans/wedding day but will more importantly get you even more excited about the future life you build together. Remember the moments and feelings you felt the day you first walked into each others lives, the butterflies you would get on those first couple of dates, your first trip together, low key nights cooking an at home meal together, or the time you got engaged. As I mentioned above it is so easy (and normal btw!) to get caught up in things like the ring to the dress to the wedding location to trying to make sure all of your guests are happy. But always, always, always remember the real reason for the wedding is the love you have for each other and your commitment to spending the rest of your lives together.
