Oh, this beautiful spring night spent photographing Patrice and Patrick at the stunning Hotel Hershey session was a DREAM. I was hoping and praying this last-minute styled wedding shoot would come together (and that the weather would cooperate!) and whoa, did everything come together perfectly! It was truly a photographer’s dream session in every way!
Every year I like to put together styled shoots to fulfill my creative desire and to showcase other amazing local talent in the wedding vendor world. This year I knew whatever styled shoots I planned would need to be scaled way back, since I would be taking care of two boy’s under two and I wouldn’t have as much time to devote to planning a huge production. Since I recently went through a complete rebranding, I had an idea to do a “rebrand styled shoot” to showcase my ideal client, ideal location, etc. I reached out to a couple incredibly sweet local vendor friends to collaborate, and I could not have been more excited that they said yes!
The wonderful Tiffany of Tiffany’s Bridal Boutique generously supplied the GORGEOUS wedding gown (which fit my model, Patrice, perfectly!) and Sara of Hemlock and Hellebore created the absolutely stunning bouquet. I am not lying when I say that this gown and this bouquet were exactly what I was imagining for this styled session! I could not be more thankful for their willingness to collaborate and to make this dreamed-up rebrand session a reality!
For the location, I decided to take the models (real life married couple Patrice and Patrick) to Hotel Hershey for the shoot. It checks *all* of my boxes for a perfect location – amazing light, beautiful stone staircase, greenery…it was just perfect. The day of the session we majorly lucked out with the weather. It was about 70 degrees and breezy and PERFECT weather for an outdoor photo session!
I could not be more thrilled with how these photos turned out. They represent myself and the Jenna Brianne brand so, so well. Patrice and Patrick went along with all of my silly photo-prompts and were the sweetest, most in-love people to photograph (truly my most ideal clients!). I have the fullest, happiest heart reminiscing on this perfect spring evening spent doing what I love.
