this shoot may be more magical than all of our holiday dreams. jacy hermes [jacy hermes photography] reached out to us via email with a mood board explaining her shoot in tucson, arizona, and asked if we’d like to collaborate. in lindsay's words, "the mood board was AMAZING and the dress was from our partner lovely bride + our favorite bridal designer who we frequently partner with, rue de seine... we couldn’t say no!"
and here we are, obsessing over our favorite new shoot:
photographers: @jacyhermesphoto, @janacontrerasphotography
props (all for sale!!!): @buckhorn_vintage
grooms attire: @buckhorn_vintage
floral ribbon: @honeysilksco
dress: @lovelybridephoenix, @ruedeseinebridal
models: @micahsamuelsen, @kennethwild
location: san xavier mission, tucson, AZ
LOCATION: pick a spot you are inspired by and one that fits the vibe you are going for. never force it and take full advantage of natural lighting! boho, natural, simple + romantic are all words that come to mind when we look at this photo.
DETAIL: there is nothing we love more than detail. let it take control; often times it can inspire the whole shoot. in our world, it's all about the little things- what attracts the eye? when you take a step back and look at the image as a whole they work together as a story; each little piece means something.
CHEMISTRY [magic]: sometimes you have it, sometimes you don't. and in this case, we GOT IT. this isn't always the easiest thing to come by, but when it's there it gives a photo life. this whole shoot (to us) felt alive and full of love and because of that, all the products involved stand out and have their own storyline.
MOVEMENT: we admire the way the bride moves in this shoot. it gives the photos spirit, a sense of emotion and a fun insight into the bride's personality; it truly "makes" the photo. when you have a piece or a product that has a life of its own, let it be, show it off and don't be afraid to let it break free. in other words, "shine on you crazy diamond."
