This lemon and sunflower shoot from the lovely Nikki Santerre Photography is a special one indeed. Due to a series of unfortunate events Charlie and Ashley were unable to get the portraits they wanted at their wedding. It’s really sad, but let’s face it – sometimes this happens! But one fabulous and fun way to make up for it is to do a styled shoot after your wedding.
From the photographer: “I suggested to Ashley and Charlie that we do a wedding portrait ‘re-do.’ Ashley is always saying that there are things about her day that she would change: her colors, how she wore her hair etc.”
“So we did just that! Ashley and I collaborated to style a ‘preppy picnic’ themed shoot. Elements included grey and yellow details, Kate Spade his/hers toasting glasses, sparkling lemonade, a picnic basket they received as a wedding gift, her grandmother’s pin on her wedding bouquet, and deliciously preppy lemon cupcakes featuring their monogram. Ashley and Charlie were able to wear their wedding attire once more to create portraits they can cherish forever!”
Isn’t this shoot the sweetest?! I love all the cheerful bright yellows and this couple is so lucky to have such a great friend to re-do their portraits with. I’d also like to give a big mahalo to Nikki for submitting this beautiful shoot!
