Lauren from Bride of the Fox: Fine Vintage Women's Wear & Lingerie

As a general rule of thumb, I want to photograph the people I collaborate with in addition to the actual models. Once we finished our work, I was excited for a chance to steal a few shots of Lauren from Bride of the Fox: Fine Vintage Women's Wear & Lingerie herself rocking some of the beautiful pieces available in her shop. Working with other creative entrepreneurs is so invigorating, really super magical stuff!

Salem Fair with Alli + Emma

I love taking photos at the fair, the beautiful colors and lights make for an amazing backdrop for portraits.  I met Alli and Emma through Instagram and if you connect with me there and you'll probably see your face here at some point too!  Originally I was thinking pastel outfits to match the pastel backdrop, but it turns out these girls have the same feels about colors and style as me - all black everything all the time and honestly I think it is probably better that way!

Also, check out how cute these baby goats are. 

Blacksburg Faux Bridal Portraits

I met Taylor through Instagram, if you follow me and interact with me on there or any other form of social media, there is a pretty good chance we’ll become friends and end up inviting you to come model for me at some point. Some of the photos were taken at the greenhouses on the campus of Virginia Tech (right next to the Hahn Horticulture Garden) and the others were taken around downtown Blacksburg.  The necklace is from Chloe + Isabel; dresses are from Bliss by Monique Lhuillier and Nicole Miller.

If you couldn’t tell by the two different wedding dresses in these photos, this is a faux bridal session so if you are Kaylee’s friend don’t get freaked out that you missed the memo.  I bought some wedding dresses earlier this year to play around with for photo sessions.  Kaylee is a hair and makeup artist so she usually spends her time behind the scenes…  It is always nice to get her beautiful face in front of my camera.  The first necklace is vintage, it belongs to Kaylee’s mother, the second necklace is from Chloe + Isabel .  The second wedding gown is by Winnie Couture.  Lace edged veil is from Simply Bridal.  These photos were taken at the Hahn Horticulture Garden on campus at Virginia Tech and in the green house adjacent to the garden.

I met Natalee through Instagram earlier this year. She’s a gorgeous girl and an fierce athlete.  How amazing are her eyes?  Her hair and makeup was done by Kaylee Graves; the first necklace is from Sabika, second necklace is from Chloe + Isabel.  These bridal portraits were taken in Hahn Horticulture Garden on the campus of Virginia Tech as well as in the greenhouses next to the garden.
