As a wedding photographer, I get to photograph timeless images and have people cherish them for a lifetime. And though I get to photograph lots of pretty weddings, I wanted to step outside the traditional theme of a wedding and try something a little more old world. Because I wanted an intimate and romantic feel, I chose a real married couple. Mallory and Ruben couldn’t have been more perfect.  All of the place settings were antique silver and china from my great aunt and we used silk linens with mercury glass accents on a handmade wooden table. I knew the flower selection needed to be different than the pastels we are all used to, so I went with a wonderful florist who used deep purples, maroon and ivory flowers to make up the gorgeous bouquet, boutinerre and center piece you see here. With keeping the focus just on Mallory and Ruben, the shoot felt less like a styled shoot and more like a real wedding. I loved the way they looked at each other and effortlessly fell naturally into poses with hardly any guidance. I hope this shoot will not only be an inspiration to other brides and photographers but a vision of true love. And I would like to thank all of the creative and talented vendors that helped make this styled shoot so beautiful! (Vendors list can be found at the end of this post)
