Warehouse Bridal Styled Shoot

"creativity takes bravery" -henry matisse

A little over a week ago I met Alyssa Zuiderveen for the first time to swap stories over coffee. Little did I know that God was placing a needed friend in my life to talk about faith + photography. We talked about our childhood, our creative struggles, and desire to digger deeper in the word. That same morning she invited me to a styled shoot she was organizing for the coming Sunday afternoon. She needed to take a couple product shots and then one thing led to another.

Now, I am not a wedding photographer, but I’m always looking for opportunities to grow + practice my art in photography. For me, this styled shoot was simply a time to have fun, experiment, and work on my craftsmanship. I'm so thankful for experiences like these because they boost my confidence + give me images for my portfolio. But like I said, I don’t do weddings so sharing them on my Instagram seems kind of silly. I don’t want to promote something I don’t do.  So I thought I would share some moments I captured on here for you to enjoy! The beautiful couple below have been married for 14 amazing years + have 3 gorgeous babes. I loved watching Lyndsay + Henry interact because it was evident that their love for each other runs deep. Capturing their love was unlike anything I have done before, but it was exhilarating + incredibly fun. Also, I'm obsessed with floral arrangements made by Blooming Vines, I may have taken a lot of pictures of her flowers. I simply took a lot of pictures and I wasn't sure how to scale down. How do wedding photographers do that?
