Colorful and White Wedding Inspiration

Colorful and White Wedding Inspiration

We love clean and timeless inspiration, and especially white spaces. There’s just something about a simple white backdrop that makes our heart go pitter–patter! Today we are bringing you this inspirational piece that checks off all the boxes for us – we hope you enjoy and are inspired!

from the photographer, Kelley McKay: “This spring-inspired editorial bridal session took place in Bozeman, Montana and was shot in part on film as a way to focus on film photography in an editorial setting, which is extremely rare in Montana. I am hopeful that, as brides see it done in a way that is bright, clean, and reflects the beauty of the area by incorporating local elements, they will be inspired to consider other options for bridal sessions, rather than either disregarding the concept entirely or simply picking a pretty locale and relying on the beauty of the landscape to make the images. While I love a good landscape as much as anyone, I really love focusing on the bride (and groom if he participates!) and the details that they have worked so hard to curate and believe that epic landscapes can sometimes detract from that. For these reasons, we chose to keep this shoot very simple and focus on incorporating the design work of a couple very talented local vendors to ensure that the focus of each photo would be the couple and a few well curated details. My film stock of choice is Portra 400, rather than the classic Fuji 400H. I love the warmth of the stock and the richness of colors, without them being oversaturated.”
