“This stylized shoot was planned for a way to get content for a new brand and website launch with my company, Kara Morgan Weddings & Events. We decided to do this shoot as a way to get more content for our website and social content to be able to showcase our skills and vibe. We did a whole rehaul of our brand and worked with a brand creator – April Foster with PaperDolls Design to come up with our brand identity. The neutral colors represent the colors and feel of our brand. We want our brand to be simple, elegant, and timeless, which was the same goal as the shoot. I have worked in the wedding world for seven years now and have never seen a brand just go with neutral and simple, we felt like it fit us best and can be a brand that will last years to come. Our slogan is “Extraordinary events one detail at a time”, for this photoshoot we worked to make sure we had everything down to the detail so we can play into our slogan and show our audience and potential brides and grooms our attention to detail. From the gold accents to the stylization everything had details that all worked together to form this vision.
We reached out to some of our favorite vendors and were happily surprised when everyone said yes! Never expected that but we have come to grow amazing relationship with vendors over the years. Each vendor also gets full rights and permissions to any of the photos and videos we captured that day.
We have everything planned, all the vendors selected, everything ready to go. The day before the shoot, the “groom” also known as the boyfriend to our “bride” messaged the photographer and me and asked if it would be okay if he actually proposed during the shoot. He had the ring and thought this might be a perfect time. He knew there was going to be photos, video, and his “bride” all dolled up making it the perfect moment to capture without her having a clue. Immediately we said YES! We decided that we needed to end the shoot with something a little more fun so that he would have the perfect romantic moment to propose. So we decided to end with a rose petal drop. We did this rose petal drop multiple times to make it seem like we were trying to get the perfect content. After all of the petals dropped to the floor, the “groom” got down on one knee and proposed, ending the night in the most perfect way. He may have fumbled to get the ring out of his pocket, but it was the perfect moment and one they will cherish forever. We ended with a champagne toast to the end of our stylized shoot and to the newly engaged couple. I mean who gets proposed to in a wedding gown after all!”
