When Graham and Sarah decided they wanted to go above and beyond in their wedding package/experience with us, we knew it was going to be a ton of fun to work with them to bring their dreams to life! You’ve seen our wicked stylist Kelsey Courtney of Style By Rae work her magic at a few of our portrait sessions and she always add’s so much wonderful to every shoot that she styles, so we decided to start offering a wedding package that includes her services for a engagement session!
Kelsey worked with Sarah to help style her three different outfits, props, and photo ideas. We started out with a fun little walk through the woods scene including their adorable little pup. Kelsey even thought to add in a fun hat for some variation. Graham and Sarah are the truest definition of candy lovers, so for their second scene they wanted to emulate their fun loving personalities mixed with their love for candy. What better way then to make some cotton candy pops! One of my favorite aspects to this session was Kelsey’s “picnic scene” she put so much thought and work into. She found a vintage picnic basket, the perfect IKEA blanket, and grabbed all the yummy necessities for a delicious picnic at Central Market! She sliced and diced her magic and even managed to grab a bottle of the couples favorite wine! Mmm. For our last “scene” Kelsey made the most beautiful flower crown, and we danced away the sunlight in the lake for some silhouette images.
I’ve definitely learned that when working together on a styled shoot with Kelsey, I need to allow myself WAY more time at a session because I could just shoot all day when she brings her magic to the table. It’s such a fun way to add personality and a story to your session!
