Today, instead of keeping you here on our blog, we are redirecting you to Tidewater and Tulle, an amazing online publication that has all things wedding and all thing Hampton Roads at your disposal.
You see… We planned our very first styled shoot without a hitch. We had a dream team of vendors sign on to participate, a gorgeous “bride” who was willing to drive down to the OBX, and a week of perfect weather. We were so ready to shoot our perfect styled shoot. The day of the shoot, we walked onto the beach and watched our coordinator and designer chasing table decor down the beach. It was FREEZING and we were caught in a terrible wind storm. Flowers were being ripped from the bouquet, the linens were billowing uncontrollably, and on top of that, our bride started breaking out into a horrible rash.. she was allergic to the cold (WHAT!? Who has ever even heard of that!?). Thankfully she was my amazing cousin and family has to put up with your craziness.. right? Needless to say, we were working against a lot of odds. Initially, we were thinking, it’s a styled shoot, we will be able to shoot under optimal conditions, but it was far from it. However, even through the many hiccups, the shoot turned out better than we could have imagined. Even better still, because we know how hard we worked for every shot. And it was a perfect lesson in how unmistakably breathtaking the beaches of OBX are.. regardless of the weather conditions!?
We worked with an incredible team of vendors for this shoot, so make sure you go and check them all out!
