“As photographers we are always trying to be creative and photograph people, place, and events that keep us inspired throughout the year…

ST_lindsey_gomes_photograp copyPin

…in December magic happened. We teamed up with Sarah Kathleen Photography and dreamed up this bohemian type shoot but wanted to put a glamourous yet rustic twist on it. Jamie and Stacey of Ever After Artistry helped us bring our vision to life with their beautiful hair and makeup skills as well as designing and styling. Oriana Maki of Quixotic flowers designed the perfect bouquets to complete the look and feel we were trying to achieve. Untamed Petals provided the amazing headpieces, gloves, belts and jewelry that were worn with each look. As you can see, this was a collaborative effort between many different artists and visionaries. This stunning shoot was the result of many dreamers who put their imaginations to work together.” – Lindsay Gomes Photography

“Lace, warm tones, and pops of metallic made for an elegant, romantic inspiration shoot with Fabulous Fete. Two locally designed and handmade gowns by Kira Elizabeth Designs showcased different looks in keeping with the classic, lavish feel of the photo shoot, which took place at the historic and striking Spoleto Festival headquarters at 14 George Street. The delicate, sophisticated floral arrangement paired perfectly with the lace runner, rough-hewn farm table, and vintage-style white leather chairs. A lace-embellished bar and delicate cake rounded out a contemporary take on classic wedding elegance!” – Reese Moore Weddings

Instead of the vengeance and wrongdoings that plagued Anna Karenia, our styled shoot explores the opulent Russian setting of Leo Tolstoy’s popular novel. Had Anna and Count Vronsky been able to escape the social pressures of their worlds… this would have been their private elopement… their happily every after. – Tiffany of Hunter Ryan Photo
