For this styled shoot I was inspired by by Filippo Minelli’s landscape series “Silence & Shapes”. I love the way he uses colored smoke in his photography to add an surreal quality to the images. I have seen smoke bombs used to add an edgy or urban feel, but for this shoot I wanted to take colored smoke in a totally different direction and have it bring color and beauty to a bridal look we created. I have always thought the concept might work beautifully with wedding photography.

When I connected with Sara from Confetti & Co. she took the idea and ran with it, and really brought this shoot to life! We assembled an amazing team of wedding vendors. It was such a pleasure to collaborate with such talented and tasteful professionals! All the details by Ilonka FloralsMaggpie VintageHello Bird, BHLDN, and Sweet Elizabeth’s really helped give the shoot depth and beauty. We found our models through Rienhart Agency and when one of them had to cancel, we simply asked Keely our florist to step in (she just happens to be both a florist and a model)! Aleksandra Ambrozy and her team did an incredible job on the hair and makeup! Terrain felt like the perfect location for this shoot and they were incredibly accommodating, letting us arrive in the morning before they opened so we could set off our smoke bombs!

We were all very pleased with the way all the different elements and details came together in this shoot! I just love the airy and ethereal feel that the colored smoke lends to the final images. See more from this shoot at the feature on 100 Layer Cake!

My husband Gregg made the amazing behind the scenes film. We are looking forward to offering films as a part of our wedding packages in 2017. Stay tuned for the big announcement!
