Vintage Victorian {Style Shoot}

 

A style shoot, in my opinion, has to have three elements: a strong theme; killer clothing & accessories; and it has to feel REAL. My good friend Hillary Polen Ryan-Hamm and I worked together to do just that.

The theme for the style shoot was: 1940s wedding.

Hillary chose clothing and accessories from local vintage clothing shops, Lily Bee’s Consignment Shop and The Storm Cellar and each necklace you see is handcrafted by Cydny Winslow of Agnes Crafts.

Our “bride and groom” are newly-engaged and our attendants are also a real couple. They all exuded passion and it didn’t hurt that they are all beautiful people, inside and out. Besides our beautiful location at the Perkin’s House living museum (an old Victorian home in Colfax, Washington now run by the Whitman County Historical Society), the bride’s dress was the most special element, in my opinion, of the entire shoot. The dress belonged to Hillary’s husband’s grandmother. It was her wedding dress and we were thrilled that it fit our model, Jamie, perfectly!

Hillary, the stylist, designer and organizer of this style shoot hand-crafted everything you see on the table-scape, right down to the doily bowl and the cupcake stand! She’s a crafty one alright. It was more than her skills with a hot glue-gun that made the day go off without a hitch though. Hillary has such a wonderful way of executing each and every detail in a way that is flawless, yet feels effortless; dreamy yet grounded; playful, yet sophisticated.
