Styled Elopement Shoot // Biltmore Conservatory & Gardens

I recently had the amazing opportunity to put together a styled elopement shoot with HMUA Emily Radin and florist Lavender Fox Florals of Asheville, NCI wanted the shoot to be very earthy and boho, while focusing on natural and tender interactions between the couple. We chose to shoot at the Biltmore Conservatory & Gardens in Asheville, NC. Their greenhouse is the best in the region, if not the state! We specifically focused on the cacti room, as the custom necklace and earrings that Lavender Fox Florals matched perfectly.

 I loved shooting with models (and irl couple) Alexandria Osborne and Tim Guercio. Aren't they so cute? And their chemistry is to-die-for. We were so lucky to be shooting indoors, it rained almost all day. That's what happens in April in WNC, so I was ecstatic that weeks of planning didn't go down the tube due to inclement weather. HMUA Emily Radin switched up Alexandria's hairstyle and makeup halfway the shoot, which provided some fun drama to her initial natural look.

I loved getting to work with some amazingly talented people, and seeing my vision come to life! Styled shoots are so much fun, because you have much more creative control over them than a typical engagement or wedding shoot.
