Laura + Garrett | Styled | Lubbock Wedding Photographer
**This shoot is featured on the Style Me Pretty Texas blog today! Be sure to go check them out and leave us a comment!! 🙂
I have been waiting and waiting and waiting some more to be able to share these images with you guys!! There is so much behind this shoot that I hardly know where to begin! Aric and I have a real passion for finding ways to help brides do DIFFERENT things for their weddings! We have seen a lot of the same things over and over the past few years and know that it’s really simple to personalize your wedding with just a little inspiration and using some creativity! We look at wedding blogs and magazines and see all of these beautiful weddings from all over the world and think to ourselves… Why can’t Lubbock brides do this? THEY CAN! You CAN! 🙂 We set up this shoot, using some inspiration from these places and trying to get creative with it and I think the end result is awesome! (Especially considering we did all of this in like 3 days!) And with the help of some awesome vendors and our sweet couple that modeled we pulled it off!
We LOVE outdoor weddings. There is nothing better. The light, the ambience, it’s all perfect for weddings and perfect for pictures! Estate and backyard weddings have become more and more popular and we wanted to try something like this for Lubbock. We wanted the style to be casual and sweet and… SOUTHERN! 🙂 We found this dress at David’s Bridal on the $99 rack and couldn’t resist. We asked Laura to wear fun bright lipstick and Garrett to wear a fun pink bow tie! From there we moved on to the display for drinks and desert. We made a few quick signs for each dessert and drink looking for cute ways to display everything! College Flowers graciously provided us with the bouquet and flowers for the cake. And Hodge Podge Design made the beautiful invitations! With just a simple theme and a few details we were able to create an adorable look for a simple, sweet, southern wedding that you can easily do too!
We also created this shoot for our very first 1 on 1 WORKSHOP!!! That’s right!! We are now offering 1 on 1 workshops and I think the first one was a success! We spent most of the day talking shop and teaching our friend James about pretty much every single thing we do! And everything we’ve done since the beginning to start our business and even about all the plans we have for the future. And at the end of the day- he came along with us to this shoot and saw how we shot this set up, how we interacted with the couple, got to shoot everything himself and asked us any question along the way! It was too much fun! And I can’t wait for our next one in November! I sat in on most of the conversation when Aric was talking- and I tell ya. I learn something new from him all the time. He really does have so much to teach! 🙂 Okay, enough talking. Hope you guys enjoy our vision for this styled shoot! Can’t wait to do more for you guys!!
