A love letter is often a key ingredient in the grandest of grand romances and today’s stunning wedding inspiration shoot by Nikki Santerre Photography is based on exactly that. Passion, romance, a rich & luxurious color palette, calligraphy and of course plenty of bookish details – it really doesn’t get more amorous than this!
From Amanda Burnette of Into It Events – “When we were choosing the artistic medium we wanted to represent in our photo shoot, we knew we wanted something enduring – just like a great romance. Ink was one of the first mediums that came to mind, and we just couldn’t shake it.
We knew that ink would be versatile, yet could be elegant and classic. Within our ink medium, we chose to focus on calligraphy and literature – two arts that require passion and patience.”
“We were so lucky to work with a fabulous team of vendors. The day of the shoot was calm, and really gave us all the opportunity to soak in our incredible venue and the talents of all of our vendors. We could not have asked for a better team – including our assistant and models.
FUN FACT: Our sweet models are actually engaged in real life! It was important for us to make this experience special for them, too. We chose to do a ‘first-first look’ for them once they were all dolled up and dressed. It was important to us to have a genuine moment and genuine emotions to share, as well as giving them the opportunity to relish in what their big day could be!”
