Moody Fall Shoot + Leah Gown

Moody Fall Shoot + Leah Gown

Nov 14, 2018


(October 23rd, 2018 in Spokane, WA)


Our Leah gown by LAmour was GORGEOUS in this styled shoot by Alexandra Rae Photography. This ballgown wedding dress has a tiered skirt with horsehair trim that transitions into a beautiful cascading train. The bodice is a delicate sheet lace with a sweetheart neckline, dainty straps, and a stunning low back.


What was the vision for your styled shoot?


Moody. I tend to sway that way with my photographs. I have a love for anything that pulls emotion into the photo. From the facial expression to the use of the light. We shot this around Halloween so I knew I wanted to use the fall colors in our bouquet (they're also my favorite color combinations EVER). We tried to pick a location that had no buildings and had sort of an eery feel. I love dead grass and trees so the area that we chose made my heart sing!


How did it go the day-of?


Michelle ROCKED the hair and makeup! She was absolutely wonderful! Kayla, who had never modeled before, totally stunned me and knocked it out of the park. Shawna did an amazing job on the florals, as always. My crew of ladies was just amazing and totally made my vision come true. We were having so much fun that we ran out of light, but that didn't stop us from getting more shots. A few of the girls used their iPhone flashlights and made the photos come to life. Again, I couldn't have asked for a better day, a better crew and a better experience.
