Leather & Lace

It’s time to think out of the box! There are so many ways to get married and you can get as creative as you want. This shoot by Kirstina E. Photography was a perfect example of how you can shake it up. Think bright colors, unique hair, and a different kind of location. I hope this shoot gives you inspiration to be yourself and do what you want to do!

What is your inspiration for this shoot?

My inspiration for the shoot truly was the idea of, “leather and lace” – a not so typical photo shoot for not so typical brides. I want to encourage brides and grooms to out of the box ideas. Today we see so many extravagant venues and bright white, pastels and other light colors…. I wanted color! …and all the THINGS! So I contacted Hello Beautiful and Divas Floral Shop with the idea of “Leather and Lace” they hopped right on board! Stacy, the florist, stated she had been wanting to do a floral mo-hawk for some time and asked if that would go with my idea… it fed my idea even more! Megan and Jenna are top when it comes to helping another local businesses inspiration and provided a beautiful lace gown and a Tip Top Tux.

That led me to finding the perfect location! A local bar, Gillies, had all of the signs on the wall, colorful seats and a pool table… it was perfect! To show some of the most unexpected locations and their beauty to me is a fun inspirational challenge! In the middle of the state and out west we have a lot of unique areas and my location for the shoot showed just that no matter your area or location I’m up for the challenge to show you just how beautiful we can make it!

My bride and groom, lucky for me, are a real couple! Kyna, our bride, is a hair stylist and makeup artist for Platform Hair Studio in Kearney so it could not have worked out any better!

French Provincial Inspiration

As Americans, we are drawn to the French lifestyle and culture. It has been around for so long and their style still rings true: eclectic and timeless. Sam Areman really took that inspiration and created this shoot with other vendors in the Lincoln/Omaha area. You can create the vibe you want anywhere you want as long as people are there to support you and give you the tools you need! Here is what Sam Areman has to say about shooting this editorial piece.

What was your inspiration for this shoot? 

I love European architecture and was inspired when I came across this building in central Lincoln. The pillars, blue hues, and historic feel reminded me of Paris; imagining french provincial moldings and furnishings. I sourced many items from antique stores, locating pieces that fit the french blue and vintage feel of the shoot.

What was your favorite part?

My favorite part of the shoot was working with talented vendors, many who are good friends. All of the pieces came together so perfectly, and I think that’s the magic of giving vendors some initial direction, and then a lot of creative freedom.
