One of my personal goals for 2017 was to put together my first editorial shoot. For this editorial my inspiration was modern minimalism. The wedding industry can be so overwhelming and couples can feel so pressured to spend several thousands of dollars on their wedding day. We live in a "more" culture--we're so plugged into a noisy world which unfortunately can carry over into our own wedding day. My goal with this editorial was to encourage couples to live counter-cultural to the world around us. Instead of fighting the noise of our culture with louder, bigger, better, "more, more more," I want to encourage couples to have a simpler, calmer, unplugged, relaxed, intentional, local, authentic, and original wedding. Less truly is more when it comes to highlighting the intimacy between a couple on their wedding day.
I collaborated with numerous local wedding vendors to highlight each individual's' talent and show how stunning a minimal wedding can be. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the who's who from this editorial! We all hope to have inspired others to focus on living counter-cultural to the overwhelming wedding industry. Go minimal and focus on the love between you and your significant other for a truly memorable day.
