The images below are some of my favorites ever, taken by someone that has quickly become one of my favorite people. Katie Delorme contacted me at the end of last summer to see if I would be interested in working together on a Cultural-themed Styled Shoot competition for Le Magnifique. Katie had dreamed of something set in the Middle Ages- something romantic, slightly rustic, and natural. With her absolutely dreamy film and digital images, I am just overwhelmed with our final outcome. Katie and I first met as she arrived at my house to spend the weekend together to prepare for and do this photo shoot. We immediately hugged one another, and I've loved her since. Katie has this incredible, ethereal, REAL photography style, and I truly cherish all of these images she made that day.
We had GOATS! That wore floral collars! I'm also fairly certain that I have a big ol' crush on our gorgeous models from that day, Ali from Alisandra Photography, and her sweet husband, Chad! They are GORGEOUS, and have such beautiful, intimate chemistry. That sweet intimacy is exactly what this shoot needed, as we envisioned that these two ran away together to elope where they felt most at home- among nature.
The overall feel of this shoot, to me, is slightly rustic, natural, soft, elegant and true. I am elated to share these images with you today; I hope you feel the same things!
