Ross and I enrolled in a business course recently and have had ‘homework’ to be doing. One of my assignments was creating a style guide for our AMP couples. Ask people to get dressed up and take pictures of them… ummm YES PLEASE!!! I knew I wanted to shoot at Allerton, because seriously… just look at the place!
Something You Salon in Champaign created the gorgeous hair and makeup for Olivia and Heaven on Earth floral design created the beautiful bouquet.
Olivia and Jacob’s clothing choices were beyond perfect for the shoot, they 100% understood the vision I was going for!! It was so fun working with them again and getting spoiled by their effortless modeling in front of the camera! Now I do really need to mention, this shoot took place in the middle of December, and it was SO COLD outside!! We had an oversized super warm blanket for Olivia, but we were shooting so much, I’m not sure she ever really warmed up until maybe a few days later! Her poor hands turned white from the cold, and when we went in to the cafe to get some coffee and warm up they turned bright red!! She remained upbeat the whole time and just owned these pictures, I will never know how truly cold and numb she probably was!!
This shoot was special to me because Olivia and Jake are an AMP couple who were married in May of this year. I LOVE seeing AMP couples after weddings, and you will absolutely be seeing their faces again!! Merry Christmas!!
