Winter Sunset at Holly Hills Country Club | Styled Shoot


Chanon from Holly Hills reached out to me to see if I could coordinate a styled shoot to showcase their property and to show couples how wonderful a winter wedding can be! With snow in the forecast, we were able to pull this shoot together in nine days. I love a golden glow and sun flare, so being able to capture golden light in the snow made this so amazing!

My vision had a touch of art-deco with the jewelry, velvet, and beaded gown. Keri's bouquet was inspired by the one I wanted to use at my own wedding (had I not gotten married in negative 18-degree weather in Maine where my flowers would have frozen and wilted immediately!) Our models, Keri and Travis Gahman, are a former wedding couple of mine who are coming up on four years of marriage. Chanon really wanted photos at one of the three bridges at Holly Hills as that is one of their wedding selling points. We wound up shooting at 2:00 in the afternoon and caught a herd of deer running through!
