Fairytale Winter Wedding | Walk Through a Wedding

Over the last week, I have raved over and over about the amazing Justin & Mary “Walk Through a Wedding” workshop. I shared a sneak peak into the first day of the workshop HERE, shared a recap of day one + the first styled shoot HERE, and now I am sharing my FAVORITE shoot from the entire workshop! WTAW was a two-day workshop with a styled shoot on each day. The first styled shoot was jaw-dropping, and I left feeling like it would be IMPOSSIBLE to top it! But then, on the second day, Whitney (our bridal model!) walked down the stairs wearing a STUNNING, fairytale-like gown with a jeweled hairpiece + floral crown! I was SQUEALING with excitement!

Then, to top it all off, we headed outside and RIGHT as we began shooting…a snow storm hit!! AHH! I was freezing and couldn’t feel my toes…but I was just SO excited! Everything came together beautifully, and I was beyond amazed at how well Whitney handled herself in the freezing cold!

And, I have to say one more HUGE “thank you!” to all of the wonderful vendors who brought this workshop tougher + contributed to styled shoot number 2:

    Hope these are INCREDIBLE! I’ve been following your work for about a year and have continuously been inspired by not only your photography but your business model. The wide shot where she’s holding the bouquet looking to the right and the studio shots scream editorial to me. I love how clean they are as well, especially for being shot in a storm. I live in Upstate New York and am no stranger to frozen fingers. It makes these even more impressive!
