When I received this shoot from Katherine Henry Boudoir, I got absolutely giddy! Not only is it a perfectly styled, well put together vintage shoot, but it is the perfect example for those wavering on whether or not to do something like this. As you will note, our lovely model at no time is anything less then perfectly clothed, yet the sex appeal, the intimacy levels are through the roof! You dont have to be stripped of your clothing to be sexy ladies! As I brought up earlier, women by nature and by definition are sexy! Add in the throw back feel to this shoot while still being modern and you have the total package. I should also note, the accessories on our gorgeous model were actually provided by a friend of mine at Happily Ever BorroWED, which for our brides-to-be, you simply must consider borrowing accessories vs buying (You'll save a ton of money!). Enjoy this amazing boudoir shoot, I know I did!!
Today's feature came to me under the pretense of a Styled Shoot. While it is indeed a styled shoot ( in that it is well thought out, put together & executed) the couple in this session is indeed a real couple. They are high school sweethearts who are the "definition of timeless love" as noted by photographer Jennifer Lucia of Close to Home Photography. Wanting to play off Sarah's favorite movie "The Notebook" (Ps- one of mine too!) they choose Salado, a quaint vintage town north of Austin, to play out their pre-WWII session.
I'm an inspiration girl. Styled shoots are a fabulous way to pick up bits & pieces along the way that suit you and your vision, helping you craft your perfect day in every detail. Today's feature is a styled bridal portrait shoot with a few lovely brides & a spot of gorgeous floral inspiration. There are some pretty amazing boutonnieres in here as well, which leads me to mention, ladies, dont forget about your men! Their flower should be another thumb print of your wedding, from the choice of flower, to the choice of green or accompanying little details, to the material that it is wrapped in. I'll totally admit, hubby's boutonniere got little to no real thought to it and now I am bummed on myself. He really should have one of these amazing ones below. Oops! So learn from me ladies, give your men something beautiful to wear!

There is a lot to love about today's styled inspiration shoot. From an aesthetic stand point, the styling is right in my personal wheel house. I love everything about dragging furniture outdoors as there is just something that seems so against the grain awesome about it. I utterly adore the use of old storm windows gently hung from swaying tree branches, drinking jars adorned with simple lace bows, earthy lush rows of moss and so incredibly much more. However what is probably my favorite part of this whole shoot is whom the models are! Alexia Wardell Photography fall into a super cute, creative idea that is pure genius!
