Last month I found myself in the lucky position of being able to attend a lovely styled photo shoot hosted by the wonderful Amanda Lynn from Mermaid Lake Photography who not only styled the shoot, she was offering up her own tips and tricks as she shot her images.
It was a beautiful near 60 degree January day (again lucky) which made for an amazingly beautiful afternoon with several area photographers coming together to photograph the amazing models Dakota (Groom) Lauren (bride) Ronnie (bridesmaid) and Amanda (bridesmaid). Lake of the Woods provided the lovely backdrop for this shoot. If you have never been to this community it is absolutely picturesque with it's beautiful parks and beaches and of course the lake.
The bride began the shoot in a gorgeous white gown then later changed into a stunning red gown. Who doesn't love a lady in red, am I right? The groom was in a traditional suit and red bow tie. The bridesmaids were outfitted in fabulous sparkly sequinned form fitting gowns in a gorgeous rose gold. All of the lady's hair and make up was just beautiful thanks to the talents of Sydney and Hailey.
Details were provided by stylistic planner and rental designer Nance's Rustic Rentals who provided some set ups from a beautiful tablescape, a kissing booth, and multiple other pieces that along with acake and cookies from Sorby Sweets and the melt in your mouth donuts from my favorite bakery Doughlicious everything was just perfect for making beautiful images of a special day.
