A Stylized Fall Photo Shoot

Hi guys! I am so excited to be sharing some pictures with you today!
If you follow along with This Little Estate on Facebook, you may have noticed some cute sneak-peak-pictures I had posted of a beautiful fall photo shoot!
 
I was so happy, and felt right in my element, to style my first photo shoot.  
Red Suitcase Photography is an up and coming photography business that allowed me to style on location for them! 
 I loved the whole idea of setting the scene for a lovely imaginative post bridal dinner for two. It was so exciting to be in charge of every element. All of the props, and the outfits and accessories! I had so much fun pulling it all together.
 
I love how the pictures turned out too. 
The couple in these photos is actually a real couple and their love shines through in these shots. 
 I made most of the decorations by hand and transported them to the site of the photo shoot. The day was beautiful! Perfect sunshine and it was dry and warm. The kind of fall day you dream about. Crisp air, warm sunshine, and the smell of fall leaves all around. 
 I was proud of not breaking a single dish in the set up of this rustic chic type table scape.
 
 There were so many beautiful spots just waiting for some romantic moments to flourish.
 
 A faux wedding isn't complete without a gorgeous faux invitation. The invitations were made by Laura Loopstra from Wellington & Grey. She created the exact feeling I wanted in an invitation! I adore them! You can check out her facebook page here if you need any custom graphics made.
It was so nice to have free reign and to be in charge of all of the styling for the day.
 
Though my efforts were tested when I needed to make an impromptu boutonniere and bouquet. 
 I cannot resist fresh flowers, can you?
 
The "Brides" headpiece was made by hand and is from Curtsy Couture.
It is a piece that is named "The Audrey" and is made of vintage lace and the softest fabric.
This couple is the sweetest. These pictures prove it.
When I see love like this captured in photography, I have love songs and sonnets and Shakespeare running through my mind on repeat.
 
I hope you enjoy these beautiful shots, on the most beautiful fall day, with this beautiful couple, celebrating their beautiful love!!!!
 
 
  
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  And there you have it friends! My first official styling experience!
 I hope you enjoyed these gorgeous photos as much as I did!!



What a testatment of true love and unforgertablle photography.
Though there was a lot of love and kisses on this day, for this photo shoot, there was a lot of laughter and fun too!!
Here is a sneek peak of the behind the scenes snapshots that didnt make the cut!!

 
 
 
 
That one of my poor baby just kills me! He came with me and slept up until the very end. Poor guy wants to always be carried around by his Mama and didn't want to be put down into a suitcase!
I hope you got some laughs too from my horrible photo bombs! 
That last picture could have been gorgeous --without my little head.
 
 If you have an event that you would like to have captured on film I would suggest Red Suitcase Photography. They did a wonderful job and were very professional to work with. These opinions are my own and I am in no way being compensated by Red Suitcase Photography or the other businesses mentioned in this post.
