I keep talking about Spring like it’s going to happen but alas my hands still go numb when typing and we still have the heater on. So perhaps this fun spring inspired wedding shoot might warm us all up today? (Or for our Northern Hemisphere friends, get you excited about those last rays of sunlight before your winter hits!)
Today’s gorgeous Spring inspired shoot takes place in Canberra at the Japanese Gardens. Amanda Thorson of Thorson Photography (who also shot this fun anniversary shoot) wanted a personal DIY feel to the shoot. She says “All the groom’s clothes were borrowed and the brides dress cost $95 from Madison at DFO, the bride’s shoes (which I love) were hers (her brother had picked them up from a second hand shop for her), also the bride’s coat was her own (she is studying fashion and has amazing style). My mum made the bouquet out of flowers from the garden.
When I do a ‘bridal fashion’ shoot like this I look for a couple of things 1. A couple who are in love, Hannah and Tom are totally in love (you can’t fake it) 2. To reflect a lot of the couple’s style, even if this is set up I really think that there should be honesty to the shoot.
I love how this shoot turned out. It captured the season and the couple’s feeling so well.”
