Islands of the Archipelago with Starling and Sage, The Petaler Co. and Lovegood Wedding & Event

Glad we were able to provide decor and props for this shoot with Starling and Sage with The Petaler Co.

When Christine (of The Petaler Co) and I dreamed up this shoot, we knew we wanted to do the shoot on one of the beautiful islands off the coast of Mississippi. There’s something about the beauty of the water and the magic of untouched greenery. In a lot of shoots, we see amazing west coast beauty. Through this shoot, we wanted to showcase the gorgeousness (both in natural landscape and talent) that Mississippi has to offer! We wanted show an actual journey so we loved the idea of a boat taking us out to the island, and we also loved that she started out with a boudoir set into her wedding gown.

In this styled shoot, we imagined our bride as a strong, independent woman who has finally met her groom, a man that would enhance her beauty and strength. This shoot represents her journey towards their blessed union, and as she waits for her groom to arrive, we showcased her beauty so that it would resonate with the beauty of her surroundings.

Our bride is an island, on her own right; the loveliness of the island representing the loveliness of her. She loves the natural magnificence of the creation around her, the elements of the earth. A bride with the perfect groom becomes better, blooms fuller, and shines brighter than ever. Now, she has found her groom that enhances her beauty but not stifles it. This is her last swan song before her life changes, admiring the amazing world that she worked hard to create for herself, admiring the landscape that is about to change for the better, so much better, as it changes to include her groom in it.”
