A Red Styled Shoot At Antebellum of New Kent
Tell us about the inspiration behind this shoot.
Some of my favorite vendors were planning to come together to create a special shoot to celebrate the LQBTQ community, specifically marriage. So I immediately jumped at the opportunity to capture these images. I am such a strong believer in "Love is Love" and if you are lucky enough to find an amazing love you should be able to celebrate it no matter who, what, when where, or why! And this venue was beyond perfect for the backdrop of this amazing day. It was such a joy to work with this team and I want to share these gorgeous images with as many people as I can!
What are some of the key elements in this shoot?
We really wanted to just focus on the couple and the red color. The realness of their love and laughter. They were very genuine and had a beautiful relationship.
Is there an overall theme and/or color palette in this shoot?
Each color of the rainbow was represented by a couple. This is the "red" couple. Which you can see in their jewelry, table setting, drinks, sweets, invitations, florals, and decor paired beautifully with grey accents.
Why did you choose to use an LGBTQAI+ couple for the shoot? What significance did it have?
Molly and Tricia are a real-life married couple who volunteered to share their love and model for us in this "Love is Love" LGBTQ styled shoot in Virginia. They were both a bit shy in front of the camera, but there was no hiding their absolute love for each other, and that sparkle in their eye. Couple goals at their best! These two are the real deal. Authentic and absolutely beautiful.
Have you worked with LGBTQAI+ couples prior to this?
Yes! And I have loved every moment of it. We should be able to show off and celebrate as loudly as we want.
Molly has pink hair. Tricia has a vest on.
