This first shoot (which was actually the most recent shoot, which took place on Sunday) was just outside Bakersfield, CA. It seems like an odd location for a styled wedding shoot, unless you know about the almond orchards. Kern County is teeming with almond trees, which produce some pretty stunning pink-and-white blooms for about two weeks every spring. Lucky for me, my collaborator Vanessa (of Vanessa Noel Events) is a Bakersfield native, so she knew just the time to set up shop among the trees to take advantage of them in full bloom! Here are just a couple of my favorites:
I also had the pleasure of collaborating with a few of my ultimate favorites here in Ventura County: Joelle (A Charming Occasion), Amy (Stella Bloom Designs), and Crystal (Crystal Robinson Makeup). Our Kate Spade-inspired shoot was a very different style from the Bakersfield almond orchard shoot, which is so fun -- I had so much variety in my photographic life this week.
Last, but certainly not least, I had the incredible opportunity to photograph a shoot styled by the unbelievably-talented Summer Watkins of Grey Likes Weddings(!!!!!). I'm totally not supposed to post anything from this shoot yet, as it'll be officially debuted on the Grey blog soon, but I just cannot resist sharing this gem with you guys...
I mean, HELLO! Gorgeous much?! All of the models this week were pretty damn breathtaking. I'm officially spoiled. Stay tuned for more; I'll be sure to let you guys know when these shoots are posted in their entirety!
What did you guys do this weekend?
