A bridal session is a classic fixture now – a moment for the bride to shine in her gown and have a photo shoot to commemorate her beauty and grace, but what about the groom? Shannon Von Eschen Photography commemorates the groom today with a winter groom shoot editorial – it highlights the masculine ways of a groom-to-be in the most wonderful way!
From Shannon Von Eschen Photography – “The vision I’d had for this shoot was not only inspired by our picturesque and winter surroundings, but, more wholly, inspired by the groom. So often wedding sessions are centered around the bride and while I’m not one to shy away from all the pretties that come with a new bride, there is something utterly perfect about the simple and masculine ways of a groom. I truly believe this is the year of the groom…at least it will be for me. This is the year that, hopefully, I’ll see galleries upon galleries full of inspiration just for men—images that document those precious moments of how the groom prepares for his moment at the altar and how, even though, simplistic, he has style that goes way beyond his tux.
I partnered with the innovative and talented Robyn from Bare Root Flora to create this vision, and we focused our shoot on the groom alone. Robyn’s ability to design floral pieces that are wholly loved by both the bride and groom is the delicate balance that makes her a true talent. I wanted to photograph beautiful boutonniere options that not only work with a variety of color pallets, but that can also work well with other groomsmen in the wedding party. The sole idea was to design effortless statement pieces uniting his own personal style with a specific wedding color palate.”
