{Styled Shoot} Coral Spring Photo Shoot

Spring Is In The Air…

I’m really excited to share this Coral Spring Styled Shoot with you! 

I have to admit – this winter had me feeling a bit down. The cold days and early sunsets really get me in a funk sometimes. I was looking for a way to pull myself out of the creative pit that I had been in for a few months, so I decided to coordinate a styled shoot. I put out a clarion call to collaborate with some awesome wedding pros, and Alicia from Alicia Ann Photographie and Lorinda from Sweet Talk Floral came to my rescue! 

I had a vision of a beautiful spring setting with coral tones. Coral is the Pantone color of the year, so I wanted to incorporate it, but definitely not over-do it. I really just wanted to do something beautiful, bright and springy. Lorinda provided the most beautiful florals. I’m still having trouble putting a “name” to her style. If I could sum it up, it would be dreamy, natural, bohemian, and organic. Mix that with Alicia’s bright and airy photography style, and my clean and natural makeup aesthetic, and we came up with coral spring wedding inspiration magic! 

Beauty Inspiration…

Our model, Meli Beth, was such a natural beauty. I was elated to find out that she had short hair. I immediately knew that she would be wearing vintage finger waves. I wanted her to look classic, but modern at the same time. I used Arbonne foundation and blush to perfect her beautiful skin, and coral tones for a fresh spring makeup look. 

Flowers and Invitations…

Not only is Alicia a talented photographer, but she is also skilled with calligraphy. Alicia created a pretty coral and blue invitation suite, written in white calligraphy. The color combination is perfect for a spring or summer event.

Lorinda is a floral genius. Like, seriously. When I reached out, I simply requested mostly greenery, with a few pops of coral. She totally outdid my expectations! Her floral installation feels wild, organic and tropical – all at the same time. These flowers certainly made me excited for spring! 

All The Feels…

I wanted this styled shoot to feel beautiful and relaxed. I wanted it to feel luxurious. I wanted beautiful, simple hair and makeup. I wanted plush, colorful flowers. I wanted bright, natural images. I wanted lace, tulle and pearls. I wanted pops of coral. I have to say that all of that is what we achieved. I hope you love this as much as I do.
