Black Velvet Romance Styled Shoot

Updated: May 29

This fall, I collaborated with The Witness Photography on a fall themed black inspired styled wedding shoot. I'm so glad with how it all came out. We knew we wanted all black and a moody theme. I also wanted it to feel elegant, romantic and appeal to couples who did not want a traditional all-white wedding. This concept could work for a couple that wants to do something a bit different but still have the wedding feel.

The vision for the shoot was elegance with a combination of romantic and modern elements. I created the mood board which reflected the black decor, gold elements, the iron gate and the beautiful outside landscape. River Farm was the perfect venue for our shoot. The day of the shoot, it poured down rain and we had to think on our feet to make some adjustments so that we could carry on with the shoot. And it worked, the pictures came out so well. You can't tell that it was raining. The bride's dress also played a major role in this shoot. We knew we wanted to have a black bridal gown. Love and Lace Bridal Boutique definitely did a great job with providing this beautiful gown and veil from their collection. The back of the dress was my favorite part!

I had the pleasure of working with Enchanting Designs and Event Rentals and Tiered and Petite again; they worked on my first styled shoot. The luxe velvet linen for our tablescape and the gate inspired cake were true statement pieces for this shoot. I had the pleasure of working with Morelia Bautista and Blushing Gold Brides who created the flawless hair & makeup and crystal hairpiece.

In regards to the models for the shoot, we were fortunate enough to work with Marie and Pech who got married in September. Marie shared that she loved the idea of this shoot and the black dress. Pech wore the jacket from their wedding, it was a perfect addition to this shoot.

I had the best time planning this styled shoot! Check out some more pictures from the shoot featured on Storyboard Wedding.
