The intimacy of a small elopement was the background for our Princess & The Frog Styled Shoot. I knew that I wanted to do a shoot that was ethereal, romantic and I had envisioned the flowing gown before anything else came to fruition. So when Julia told me she could have a custom gown made by the amazing Evey Rothstein… I was all for it.
I have done many shoots with Julia and she knows me so well. She knows I must have details, and that my vision needs to be brought to life. This particular shoot came to fruition during a brainstorming session at the Cheesecake Factory during a birthday lunch. Julia had as much input into this as I did, as it was near and dear to her heart. She is very much into bringing a certain feeling and emotion to her shoots and this time she was also the bride and you can feel that in her eyes when you see the photos. This shoot was even more special to me because we were using my son as the Best Man and daughter as the flower girl..The premise of the shoot being an intimate elopement with just the close close family/friends.
Really I could go on and on about it, but here I feel the photos speak more then I ever could!
