A Musical Nashville Elopement

I'm so excited to finally share this dreamy shoot! The idea to play with BHLDN accessories (like that stunning caplet and super cool body jewelry) came to me early last fall when the leaves were crisp and the air was cool. I was so happy to approach my friend Ashley about it and even more pleased that she agreed to help me capture everything.

As things often do, the project evolved from a fleeting thought into a full-blown love story centered around a whimsical and intimate "elopement" in the most perfect vintage camper. We envisioned our beautiful pair as a couple of renegade musicians in the midst of a whirlwind romance. Without the need for the pomp and circumstance that usually accompanies weddings, our lovers retreated to the sweetest little camper (this air bnb is a gem!) and spent the morning baking their own wedding cake, serenading each other and ultimately tying the knot all alone. 

I love how special all of the little details turned out (the incredible tambourine hand lettered by Salt + Paperie sits atop my work-space now) and how genuine each laugh and smile between our rad models were. This shoot is one of my favorites to date!
