Styled Shoot

Windswept Nautical Wedding Shoot

This beautiful shoot was the perfect nautical mix between natural and classic. When we started working with Lindsay from 1783 Photography to design a romantic evening on the beach our nautical hearts fell in love. The beach has such a strong meaning to the both of us, and we wanted to channel those emotions through the design, colors and theme of this styled shoot. It may have been a crazy windy night, but that added another layer of perfection to this shoot that took place on the beaches of Calvert County. 

While we wanted to keep a classic nautical style, we also wanted there to be organic touches to bring out the laid-back setting. Using navy as the main color for the bridesmaid dress and table details, we were able to focus on a muted blue color palette for the rest of the aspects. 

Once we began talking with Travis from Travis Floral Design he absolutely got our vision for the bouquets and centerpieces. We wanted loose and organic, but also defined to a sense to remain classic. We were head over heels for everything he created. The unique pieces from Grateful Heart Shop were so timeless and beautiful. They fit perfectly with the vision for the shoot, and added another dimension to the scene. 

We loved working with such amazing creatives, we hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed putting everything together.

Should You Have A Styled Engagement Session?

Nautical Styled Engagement Session Enchanting Events and Design

One of our favorite things about weddings is actually the events that come before the wedding. We are absolutely head over heels for the wedding day itself, but we strongly believe that couples should learn to celebrate everyday from getting engaged up until their grand exit. But why? Because it is going to fly by, and it is truly one of the best seasons in your life. 

These celebrations begin with your engagement session. This is your chance to really get to know your wedding photographer, understand how they work, and learn to be comfortable in front of their camera. It’s also a great reason to get fancy and have a fun date night with your husband or wife to be! More times than not, a couple will search for an outfit and show up to spend an hour or two with their photographer, but it can be more than that if you want it to be! 

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it is a styled engagement session! Think a fun set-up, adorable props, and maybe even your own save-the-date if you don’t plan on using a photo on it. This is the perfect way to get photos to display at your wedding, and have it match your theme. The best part is that a styled engagement can be whatever you heart desires.

A styled engagement session rather than an entire wedding makes it easier to bring grand ideas to life, because of the smaller scale. Did you want to have a lounge set-up at your wedding, but don’t have the space? How about renting a vintage sofa, taking it into the city somewhere and having your photos done there. Maybe you and your fiancé spend a lot of time on the water in a canoe, why not bring that along? That was our inspiration for our nautical styled engagement shoot, and we love bringing fun ideas like that to life.

A styled engagement is your chance to show your story, share what you love as a couple and really enjoy the few hours together…all while having some incredible photos taken! The main point of your engagement session is to have fun, enjoy the moment and cherish your engagement season. 

If you are interested in a styled engagement session, let us know! We are currently accepting a few requests and will work with your budget to bring your ideas to life.

Nautical Styled Engagement Session

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to let our nautical hearts go wild with this beautiful styled engagement session. When Lauren from Lauren Werkheiser Photography contacted us about collaborating on a nautical shoot, we were all in. Any chance we get to do what we love in a nautical setting is a wonderful day. We teamed up with some other amazing creatives and went to work to bring the best engagement session we could to the Wye River Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland. 

Amongst the nonstop rain in Maryland, we were really happy to see a beautiful day which was perfect for this shoot. Our models, Leslie and John were incredible and really know how to rock an engagement session. Between the gorgeous blue dress, the lanterns and the canoe, we couldn’t have picked a more perfect location for this magic to come to life. We hope you love these photos as much as we do!

Annapolis Nautical Wedding Styled Shoot 

Our Annapolis nautical wedding styled shoot took place on the most beautiful December day. Not only was the weather perfect, but the team that worked with us for this shoot was a dream. There were lots of laughs, delicious bagels while we set-up and a view that was undeniably beautiful. When you have a location as beautiful and historic as Historic Inns of Annapolis- The Maryland Inn, there is bound to be a vintage and crisp vision to be brought to life. 

The Maryland Inn is one of the oldest buildings in Maryland and is full of classic charm. The beauty is endless from the chandeliers and wooden staircases to the crown moulding and large fireplaces, it was just a dream. Then to have such a wonderful neighborhood surrounding it…does it get more perfect? 

The venue is a quick walk away from the docks of Annapolis, which made for the very best backdrop for our sweethearts. The nautical charm was mesmerizing, and we were so excited to see the sail boats going to and fro behind our bride and groom. Of course, what is your big day without your other best friend by your side? The bride and bridesmaid shots are some of my favorites. The navy details, beautiful florals and obvious love between these two gals is perfect. 

We had so much fun putting this nautical wedding shoot together, and we can’t thank the other creatives and models enough for their time. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we do!
