Olive Seattle Studio Bridal Shoot

December 29, 2023

An organically elegant Olive Seattle Studio bridal shoot for Vogue and Tatler!

I had to pull this shoot together a bit last minute when I found out I was going to be featured in both British Vogue and Tatler Magazine! It’s always so exciting to have my work published. But when a magazine reaches out to you, your first deadline to submit photos usually comes very shortly after that. So, I didn’t waste any time and got right to work planning this styled bridal shoot.

My timeline for planning this photoshoot was tight, but the stars all aligned when I started contacting vendors. I love working with Lea, the owner of Enora Creative Co, so I asked her to contribute some of her beautiful stationery. I also knew I wanted a Danielle Frankel bridal gown for the session, and The Dress Theory in Seattle had the perfect one available. Then, to make this Seattle studio bridal shoot even more special, I finally got to work with Rachel, the bride for this session. I’ve wanted to collaborate with her for such a long time, and the timing worked out perfectly.

I had an organic, luxurious, timeless vision for this bridal shoot. So, Olive Seattle Studio seemed like the ideal location, with its soft light and Tulum-inspired arches. After I shared my ideas with the florist, Rachel Rouse, I let her run with it. Ultimately, she delivered wildly elegant arrangements that were everything I’d hoped for. That is what I love about giving vendors creative freedom! It allows them to stretch themselves, show the depth of their talent, and exceed all expectations. 

On shoot day, I styled the flay lay with Lea’s creative guidance. Overall, I loved all the organic, natural textures we layered throughout this Seattle studio bridal shoot. I shot film and digital images, capturing all the elevated details. It was all such a crazy whirlwind, but I am so happy with how the day and these final edits turned out!
