We are positively smitten with this next feature, the collaborative heart project of a team of talented vendors with harvest time in mind! Using farm-to-table details and sweetly humble styling, the beautiful affection of a simply-in-love pair was brought to life in the stunning scape of Deer Creek Canyon. It carries the undeniably raw and imperfectly perfect air of the true nature of marriage in just about the sweetest vignette of a quiet love story! It speaks to the couple with a heart for peaceful living and a mind to celebrate their union with the gentle graces of a live beautifully lived!
A word from photographer Rachel Carter:
“Autumn is the season for harvesting; the harsh sunlight and tireless, long days of Summer are slowly dancing away into brisk, softer days. With the new season comes thankfulness, ease, and bliss along with a quickly changing color palette of oranges, yellows, and browns.
I purposely captured this shoot entirely on film for it’s consistent ability to be raw and imperfect. As with anything purely organic, perfection is often tossed out the door. From the rugged exterior of the Hildebrand Ranch barn to the soft torn edges of Chelsea Maher‘s honest calligraphy vows, this shoot portrays an honest and delicate view of the autumnal season and nature itself.”
