Last year Brock and I (the Lass and Beau of this operation) were married in Letchworth state park. Letchworth holds a special place in our hearts as it's where the early days of our relationship played out. We hiked the trails, swam in the river and sat in awe at the grandeur of the gorge overlooks. We found our favorite place to look at the stars and we found some of our favorite pieces of each other as we giggled and explored through those moss covered paths. Letchworth truly has been the backdrop to our love story.
When we were married we realized how much we would love to photograph a wedding at Letchworth and so we put together this styled shoot with our good friends over at Deep Roots Photography. We clicked with Trevor an Larkin right from the beginning. They are fun and silly and just easy to be around. Our shared passion for photography and being a husband and wife photography team themselves, we had plenty of common ground to bond over! We were so excited to put this styled shoot together with them and we had so much fun collaborating on it! We took our turn both in front of the camera and then behind it as Trevor and Larkin modeled for us. We were happy to get to photograph them because we admire them so much. They have such a fun and adventurous love. They love traveling together and they are always adventuring and exploring new things side by side. Happiness beams out of them when they are together. The two are high school sweethearts who have grown up together and still look at each other like they are locking eyes for the first time. They have the kind of love we LOVE to photograph.
When planning the details of the day, we were so inspired by the stone tables that are a staple of Letchworth. The stone table that we chose to feature is one located at the "Tea Tables Overlook" right on the edge of the beautiful gorge. It felt truly magical, like a page from a fairy tale. We really wanted to mix both masculine and feminine styles for a beautiful finished piece that felt both whimsical and romanic. The stone tables being a strong and perfect base, we saw these hand spun stoneware plates made by Pits Pots and we were so taken with them. We love pottery and we really wanted to feature handmade stoneware because we appreciate the craft of it and we love that while this was a set, they are all still beautifully unique. We also fell in love with other pieces of pottery and chose to use them to hold our sweet treats. We are especially obsessed with the bowl he created using two different clays which marbled together on the potter wheel and was finished with hand carvings. The florals are freshly picked spring flowers from our mothers garden. We really wanted the flowers to be romantic and sweet, like something your beau would have picked for you to fill your kitchen vase. The candelabrum used as a centerpiece holds an especially sentimental place in our hearts as its the one item from our wedding that we chose to also feature in this shoot.
We were so excited to be able to work with Emma Bauso on this project. She is our favorite stationary designer and we had been admiring her work over social media for so long! We could not have been more ecstatic over the stationary suites she created. We gave her a few key words of our vision and we were blown away with how lovely her creativity looks in a printed product. It was better than we could have even envisioned!
Highlighting Trevor and Larkins love in this romantic setting, with a little bit of spring rain sprinkling down and the lovely blue sky dappled with clouds, this was truly a perfect spring day.
