If you peruse the wedding blogs, you find countless examples of outdoor summer weddings. As we know from recent experience, we “do winter” really well here in Calgary. I recently photographed a winter inspiration shoot with Janelle from Flowers by Janie and Karakai Design & Styling. Think steaming cups of tea, a beautiful floral chandelier, sheepskin and candlelight.
Here’s what Janelle had to say:
We wanted to show couples the potential for unique engagement and/or wedding photos created around a styled area in the middle of nature. We wanted to showcase the use of bright pink blooms in winter contrasted with deeper deep purple hues and that color can be enjoyed in the cold of winter. Any space can be made to look romantic, beautiful, warm and inviting all at once, creating something extraordinary for your wedding photos.
