Black Wedding Inspiration in Las Vegas

In honour of our friends in the States, we thought that we'd celebrate Black Friday by featuring our black inspiration shoot that was published on Wedding Sparrow on Halloween.  

From Catalina“I have had a black wedding in my head for a while. People often see black as depressing but I see it as classic, beautiful and happy. I think that what one person sees as dark another person can see as light. Nirvana lyrics are the same for me. His lyrics while dark were littered with romantic notes and love stories. I really wanted to make a shoot that was romantic, elegant, dark but loving. I thought that the contrast of the lovely colors of the Las Vegas desert really brought the light that was needed to ground this dramatic shoot.”

Winter Engagement Inspiration Board

Ottawa Wedding Planners

We have a styled engagement session coming up this weekend with Laura Kelly Photography and Amy & Jen Decor and wanted to share our inspiration board!

Laura approached us about doing a winter engagement session for a lovely couple that was hesitant about shooting in the snow. We wanted to show them that shooting outside can be both romantic and beautiful, albeit a little chilly. Our board featured neutral colour palettes with pops of red peppermint prettiness. We didn't want it to be too holiday themed though, instead opting for more of a celebration of how beautiful winter can be here in Canada.

We shoot on Sunday and can't wait to show you the results!
