FORBIDDEN LOVE | Engaged River Valley Styled Shoot

In Love, Styled Shoot, Wedding by estherbloomLeave a Comment

We are so excited and overjoyed to share this fun project we were asked to shoot for Engaged River Valley Wedding Magazine.  When JoElle first asked me to shoot this Snow White & Huntsman inspired shoot I have to be honest…I have never actually watched fairytales.  I know, I know….a wedding photographer who isn’t “into” fairytales.  That’s me!  I still have never watched Cinderella & I never really played princess as a child either.  I didn’t like anything that wasn’t realistic.  Maybe this is why I have a love for trashy reality TV like the Real Housewives.  Don’t judge me.  So, before this shoot I did watch the movie on Amazon Prime & I still know why I don’t watch those films.  However, I can say that I did love the forest shots and the wardrobe…which is what we were able to recreate thanks to amazing vendors.  The most exciting part of the day was when they brought the sweet owl Gizmo out for the final shot.  No one had given me a heads up about the owl, so naturally I was crazy excited over shooting this sweet guy.  I love working with animals during our shoots so this was just the icing on the cake.  & did I mention I got to take home a pie?!?  It was DELICIOUS!  Thank you so much to every vendor who made this possible and to the amazing models Stephan & Abbi!  Fun fact, we actually shot their wedding 2 days after this shoot!  They are truly a dream to work with.
