I’m totally head over heels in love with this country chic photo shoot by Studio SMC Photography not only for its gorgeous displays of florals but because it reminds me why I love Massachusetts so much. The barns, the old rock walls, the farmhouses…they are all so romantic and sweet and make for perfect backdrops on your big day. Click here for even more.
From Studio SMC Photography: This stylized shoot took place on June 26, 2011 in western Massachusetts on the campus of Mount Holyoke College and at a private residence, both located in South Hadley. The couple, who are married, were selected for their great chemistry and gorgeousness:) All of the vendors who were chosen to be a part of this shoot are very community-minded and provide extraordinary customer service. The jewelry, in particular, is very unique and was part of the inspiration for the look and feel of our shoot.
The couple who own the house and barn (not the models) take incredible care of their home and love antiques. The red barn was rebuilt a number of years ago to complement their sweet farm house. The farm house was originally built in 1764 and has since been updated. The pergola was built with beams from the old barn before it was rebuilt. The couple love birds and have built bird houses for the property, including a replica of their barn.
This stylized shoot was coordinated by myself, Sandra Costello, the owner of Studio SMC Photography. Love fueled this project and lots of wonderful ideas. The bike, luggage and a number of other props were provided my me to add a bit of whimsy to this love fest.
