"With some tenderness
you reached across to hold me,
hold me together."
This shoot was designed by Sophia at Wink and Willow. She was inspired by autumnal vibes and colors with a modern twist. She wanted the shoot to be focused on the LGBTQ+ community, but she wanted to keep the aesthetic masculine and moody. She had seen so many styled shoots where a bride and groom were featured, so it was important to her to diversify what we see as the "norm" in the wedding industry. While the backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains is very rustic, the creative team she collaborated with was inspired by the deep fall colors with a touch of burgundy and gold. Our goal was to take the modern aesthetics and rustic backdrop and make them work together, creating a casual yet elegant style. This shoot was a celebration of love of any kind and breaking the mold of traditional weddings.
What sound was that?
I turn away, into the shaking room.
What was that sound that came in on the dark?
What is this maze of light it leaves us in?
What is this stance we take,
To turn away and then turn back?
What did we hear?
It was the breath we took when we first met. Listen. It is here.
It Is Here, Harold Pinter
