I always get so excited about planning an editorial shoot, especially when we get to focus on bridal and wedding portraits! The beautiful Cherokee Creek Farm in Jonesborough, Tennessee is such a lovely place for weddings. As soon as you walk into the charming farmhouse you feel as if you’ve been transported to another time! There are bright rooms with such high, spacious ceilings and a grand staircase which is excellent for portraits!
It’s also a dream when you get to collaborate with such gracious vendors. I was so fortunate to have a truly talented team of wedding professionals work with me to create such gorgeous images. Annie’s Room provided two fabulous wedding gowns and elegant veils to adorn our “brides” with. I think I had the most fun getting to be part of our very own Say Yes To The Dress with Katie and Victoria!
The stunning girls were given the true luxury treatment and pampered by Whitney and Lauren. Whitney is a fantastic makeup artist who has spent years honing in on her craft and is such a fun person to have around on your wedding day! You can find Lauren doing her hair magic at J. Christene Salon in Bristol, TN. She is by far one of the most talented hairstylists I’ve come across and I adore her!
The fabulous bridal bouquets were created by Chelsea at Blossom and Bloom Designs in Johnson City. She also was gracious enough to style some cute flat lays using the invitations from Ink & Sugar Co. too!
One of my favorite things about editorial portraits is having the ability to go in with so many fun ideas! I have played with film for personal things, but I’d never really incorporated it into weddings. That is definitely going to change! I shot so many rolls of film and fell in love with the results. I hope you love the images as much as I do!
