My husband and I traveled to London earlier this year, and while we were there, I photographed an English countryside shoot. The photos just makes my heart beat faster–what a dream come true to photograph in such a beautiful place! You should have seen me at this shoot. I practically jumped up and down after every shot, squealed every other shot, and might have done a happy dance a time or two. Words can’t express how grateful I am that this shoot happened–honestly it almost didn’t.
Long before our trip, I reached out to stylist after stylist, but they either weren’t interested or simply didn’t respond. I was frustrated and time was ticking–but I was D E T E R M I N E D to photograph an English countryside styled shoot. Finally, the day came and we left for our trip with no concrete plans.
And then. Then a dream team came together a week before, and made this shoot HAPPEN! There’s a part of me that still can’t quite believe it! From the bottom of my heart, I want to hug and thank Jillian Manger + Naomi Kenton, the two main ladies who were responsible for making this shoot a reality.
There’s something about just a few images that stirs my heart. There are so many more beautiful images from this shoot, but for now I believe these six photographs together perfectly capture the essence of the day. I’ll be posting more small collections from this shoot in the days ahead.
I want to send the warmest thank you to Abby and her team at Style Me Pretty for featuring this shoot this morning. My heart is so full of gratitude. Xo.Bridals, Weddings
