With each glowing autumn day, I fall deeper and deeper in love with the rich colors of this special time of year; the golds, the fading greens and those amazing radiant reds. So when this styled shoot by Melanie Nedelko came across my desk, you could say I was a tad bit extra excited. Filled the brim with those captivating colors and satisfying every single one of my seasonal wedding daydreams, image after image is frame worthy. Jump into the pretty pile in our VAULT to see every single one right here!
From Melanie Nedelko… This styled shoot was a collaboration with some really talented folks from Austria. I’m so proud that I had the chance to work with them and realize my vision of an autumn inspired wedding shoot.
Viki from Lovely Weddings and Timo Bolte, a very talented florist, created a wonderful table setting with different beautiful red tones, mixed with golden and pastel elements. A plain wooden table peppered with costly arranged golden accents forms an exciting contrast to the unemotional location where it becomes a fascinating eye-catcher.
The scenery took place in a rough gravel pit near Vienna, this unique location reflected the golden autumn light perfectly and our beautiful model in her Elfenkleid gown seemed to get one with the background. Our models – they are also a couple in real life – were so cute and did a really great job! It was my second styled shoot ever, and the first that I captured mostly on film. I love the skin tones and the special colors you can only get from film. I hope we can inspire brides with our version of a perfect autumn wedding.
