Styled Shoot: Rustic Equestrian Shoot by Maegan Hay Imaging

In addition to helping Tracy here at WeddingLovely, one of the other hats I wear is as an invitation designer at Odd Duck Press. My designer self recently had the pleasure of collaborating with some very talented local wedding artists here in my new home town of Bellingham, WA. This dreamy styled shoot was orchestrated and photographed by the lovely Maegan of Maegan Hay Imaging. Here’s what she has to say about the shoot:

Andy & Sara’s fictious nuptials come on the coattails of a dream I had in which I photographed this brilliant, elegant equestrian wedding. As a horse person I have always wanted to photograph an equine inclusive wedding, and in my dream, the wedding was the perfect combination of rustic chic (that we’ve all seen a million times…) and modern elegance.

See more after the cut!

Kayleen’s ghost pumpkins, flowers and tablescape were the perfect mix of the two styles, and combined with CLIS’s simple cupcakes and Tawny and Tuesday’s down home cooking, the table was, simply put, a vision.

Photographed on a rare and unseasonably sunny Washington day, the late afternoon fall sunlight blessed us with perfect colors and sunflare that made for very minimal post processing for me.

And lastly, Andy & Sara (who are real life love birds) sizzled with emotion in front of the camera and reflected in their eyes is a love for a each other even more breathtaking than the $10k sparkler that was on loan from Borthwick Jewelers in Ferndale, WA.

All vendors (including Anderson Bean and Coastal Farm and Ranch) generously provided their goods and services for free in return for collaborating on this shoot. It simply couldn’t have been a more perfect day, and it was, quite literally, a dream come true for this humble photographer.
