I cannot explain to you how much I ADORE this shoot; I am so thrilled Wed in The Wild was chosen to publish it. It is the ultimate in boho, beauty vibes. There’s macrame, florals, a fedora and a gorgeous couple. If you are opting for an intimate wedding on the beach, or even some beach couple portraits, then you need to bookmark this one!
Submitted by the beautiful Cassidy Skye Photography (who modelled with her IRL hubster), and shot by Stephanie Barrett Photography, the shoot from start to finish is an earthy, raw and honest ode to love and to all things wild and bohemian…
The shoot was conceptualised by Cassie, Stephanie and the florist…all had a hand in discussing the tone, the vibe and the palette. All lovers of the boho trend, they decided to stay true to their hearts and stick with a style they love.
As Cassie and Matt are a real, married couple, they bought honesty and chemistry to the set. Added to that, Cassie wore her actual wedding dress and they whispered vows to each other renewing their love and commitment. A joy to shoot, I can certainly imagine. And I’m so glad Cassie wore one of her many hats, adding to the boho vibes of the shoot.
The shoot ran amazing, and as Cassie explains, everyone was so fun to work with…
“We laughed a ton and we all got along so well that it made it feel natural and easy. Jess (the florist) did her thing throughout the shoot. She even grabbed some sea weed when we were down by the water and tied it around the bouquet just to give it an extra magic touch. Stephanie (the photographer) gave great direction and posed Matt and I perfectly. Her editing is warm and glowy and it worked out great with the lighting and theme”.
Playing on the moodiness of the weather is certainly something a good photographer will do. Magic can be woven…so don’t worry if your day is marred by overcast clouds or rain…
“The only challenge involved with this shoot was the weather. It was kind of cloudy and gloomy, but as you can see, the images turned out amazing. The cloudy sky created a vintage bohemian feel, which was exactly what we were going for.” Cassie
For the last part of the shoot, Cassie & Matt changed out of their wedding attire and donned some relaxed, beachy clothing. Neither were afraid to get all the way into the water, and splash around and have fun. The waves were crashing, and Stephanie (the photographer) ventured out with them to get the perfect shot.
I absolutely love how relaxed and refined this shoot is…whilst it’s earthy, tonal and boho, there is still a delicacy and an elegance about it. All tied up with a ribbon of fun and playfulness. I urge all of our couples reading this to let go and have fun with your wedding portraits; after all, staying true to yourselves and showing your fun side always makes for some awesome memories to be captured.
