From Chloe Photography... My inspiration for this shoot was the winter season.  I really wanted to capture everything about the season from the foggy weather, to the crooked twisted figures of trees after shedding their leaves.  The barren trees, foggy morning and frosted foliage combined with the juxtaposition of the old structures and a newly married couple made this Puyallup, Washington location fit right in with my vision.

I discussed the theme of the shoot with all of the vendors and asked them to put their own creative twist on the idea of a winter wedding.  What I got from them was more than I ever imagined.

Paula Pritchard of Paisley Petals came through with an elegant arrangement of flowers that seamlessly blended with my styling.

Kristal Locke of Lockes on Location styled the hair for both the bride and the groom beautifully with a look that was both sophisticated yet current and playful.

Brittany Lewis of Brittany Lewis Makeup Artistry did a fabulous job on our brides makeup! The red lips against the fog was perfect.

I cannot say enough good things about my models Erica Moritz and Jonny Burk who actually started dating just a few days prior to the shoot!  They were both completely down to earth, easy to work with and obviously knock out gorgeous.
