It’s always fun to create a styled shoot that’s completely different from all the other things you’re currently working on, and we had an absolute blast with this styled Halloween couples session! I had been wanting to do something like this for ages, and to see it all come together at last was so special.
I find that doing a styled shoot where you have the freedom to make it anything you want really reignites that creative drive. A fun and relaxed and totally random styled session can be the best medicine to reframe and refresh a photographer’s mind during the busiest time of the year.
Having worked with our wonderful couple MacKenzie and Jake last year as well, I was so pumped to hear that they would be on board for something totally different this time around. Our super talented makeup artist Lia turned their faces into spooky skeletons that looked a million times more awesome than I ever could have imagined. The detail she put in was out of this world (literally!). Brenna, our stellar florist from Wild Honey Weddings, helped tie the entire fall look together with a gorgeous arrangement full of all the autumn colours. Since we were doing this shoot in mid September the leaves were only just beginning to change, so the warm tones in the bouquet really brought out those fall feels.
We started photography right as the sun was beginning to set and had a wicked time experimenting with the otherworldly look of the shoot and playing around with the falling golden light for a uniquely ethereal vibe.
Happy October everyone!
