Styled Shoot: Forest Picnic Anniversary Session

By Season Hurd |

My favorite styled shoots are those that tell a story. It is so interesting to see how a concept can be conveyed in a short series of still photos. To see the details that are chosen to complete the mood. In this case, every single little detail is just beautifully chosen. Even the arrangement of the fig and greenery on the plate is a testament the thought that was put into the smallest things and continuity of style. The “bride” is gorgeous beyond belief and a perfect form for two incredible dresses and lots of pretty accessories! There isn’t a thing that I would change stylistically about this shoot. The only thing that eludes me is the absence of her partner. But I think that the fun of telling a story through images is that, much like a book, your mind is allowed to interpret what you see. For me the feeling is somber at times; like a lover lost but fond memories remaining. To the creators, it was a little bit more upbeat: (hehe)
The autumn day in the mountains starts with our lovely wife getting a picnic basket ready. She puts on her wedding dress to relive her big day with boots and a jacket. While she packs up the suitcase full of goodies for her picnic, she jots a little note for her husband. In it she writes ‘We walked up this path before, now we are walking up this path again together. Happy Anniversary My Love.’

She walks up a path to the perfect picnic spot where he had proposed to her years ago and gets everything set up. A bouquet of gathered flowers and a breakfast picnic with coffee and sweet baked goods. The idea was to create a story line that brought a feeling of love with a touch of autumn. A style shoot with a focus on a love story that brought them to another happy anniversary. – Kimberly Weber Photography
