When you combine exquisite bridal details, a charming venue, and the most amazing REAL couple… you get a dreamy and whimsical styled shoot by Belle Amour Weddings + Events, a local Baton Rouge, Louisiana wedding planner! Blakeley, Belle Amour’s owner, recruited her brother Brandt and his stunning girlfriend Lindsey to model at The White Magnolia in Kentwood, Louisiana!! What an honor it was that she chose me to capture it all!! To say I was in heaven this whole shoot is an UNDERSTATEMENT!! I mean just look at this couple!! Would you have even known that this was a styled shoot if I hadn’t have told you??!
This shoot featured so many talented local vendors! We had beautiful neutral blooms by Hummingbird Floral Studio, a romantic candle-lit fire place by Truly Haute, and lovely accessories and gowns that will make your jaw drop by I Do Bridal Couture!! The shoot also features multi-pattern/multi-style bridesmaids gowns by Bella Bridesmaids of Baton Rouge, a dreamy invitation suite by Invitobella, and GORGEOUS engagement ring from Lee Michael’s Fine Jewelry!! You can find all of these fantastic vendors linked below!
Throughout the shoot, Lindsey modeled 3 gowns. Every single one of them is truly breath-taking! They make me wish I could go try on wedding dresses again haha! The first gown was so stunning I could hardly believe my eyes! Designed by Monique Lhuillier, this gown was an embroidered tulle natural waste ball gown that featured floral lace and a strapless sweetheart neckline!! Lindsey then changed into another designed by Monique Lhuillier. This one featured a re-embroidered lace strapless bodice, a sweetheart neckline, and a duchess satin trumpet skirt! This dress was unique in that it can be worn two ways! It also comes with re-embroidered lace, high illusion neckline, long-sleeve jacket! How amazing right?! And last, but certainly not least, was my absolute favorite gown of the day!! The third gown Lindsay modeled was a breath-taking ballgown designed by Rivini! It featured an imperial corset bodice, deep v neckline, long sleeves, and all over lace with scallop edging!
Aside from the truly amazing details and gowns, Lindsey and Brandt were the PERFECT models for this shoot. If you look at these photos, their chemistry and connection to one another is so evident and shines brightly!! They simply light each other up and I felt so honored to photograph them for this shoot!
