This styled elopement at Hell’s Half Acre was everything my dark and moody creative heart could have possibly needed. It was the perfect set up for this fall fashion shoot, between the golden hour sunset, and the dark earthy tones, it was incredible. Perfect for my fall brides, this outdoor elopement was the perfect mix of casual and adventure. Between the bride’s ankle length gown, and the groom opting to forget the tie, it was pure bohemian chic magic.
Wedding Day Vibes
When planning your wedding it’s important to consider what kind of story or vibe you want to portray or feel on that day. Are you and your partner more casual and laid back? Or like to get dressed up and party? Those elements of your relationship are important when making wedding or elopement decisions. Just like in this elopement at Hell’s Half Acre. I’ve had couples that love to dress up but have adventurous hearts, so we ended up in the Tetons with the bride in a wedding gown and hiking boots.
It’s all up to you, and what your story is all about. If you’re planning an elopement in the fall, consider including elements of the fall season in your elopement. Whether we’re eloping in Grand Teton National Park, and going for a hike to find the perfect intimate location, or renting a cabin, I’m there. Elopements are the perfect choice for showing of your personalities and having some fun.
Elopement at Hell’s Half Acre
If you’ve decided an elopement is the right choice for you, what about a sunset ceremony. What I love about a sunset ceremony is the element of romance, and intimacy. Most people will get married during the day, and spend the rest of the day with friends and family. However, by choosing a sunset elopement, we’re able to get intimate and moody shots like these.
The time of day changes the whole vibe and feel of the ceremony. A morning ceremony is fun for the sunrise, if you get there early enough. Mid morning is great for a brunch reception after, and an afternoon ceremony is pretty popular for couples to get that golden lighting. Nevertheless, I think a sunset elopement at Hell’s Half Acre is incredibly breathtaking. The sun will begin to set, and the lighting with the scenery in the area is just out of this world incredible.
Next, let’s talk about double exposure in our pictures. Just like in this styled elopement at Hell’s Half Acre, the images contain 2 scenes put together. Not only is this a cool effect, but the story telling is something different completely. We’re able to place two scenes together creating a unique moment showcasing the love of the couple. It may not be traditional, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be absolutely incredible.
Shooting in double exposure has always been an effect that I love, and for my elopement couples, it’s such a fun way to tell your story. Let’s work together to create a story of your love that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
