Bohemian French Country Styled Shoot

We're so excited to finally share this shoot with you! Our overall vision was to style more of an elopement than a wedding, so our goals were relatively simple: we wanted a dress with a bohemian style, a venue with a European flair, and florals with rich autumn hues. After searching long and hard for a venue only to come up with nothing, we decided to drive around one of our favorite neighborhoods in Jacksonville, San Marco, and look at private residences. When we drove past this house, we knew it was perfect. We took the leap, knocked on the door, and introduced ourselves to the dearest elderly couple who were thrilled to let us use the outside of their home. It was important to us that we used a real couple as models, and Ryan & Christi (who will celebrate their 6th anniversary this December) were a beautiful fit. Beyond being gorgeous people, their love for each other was so strong and created a genuineness to the images that we were striving for. A huge thank you to everyone to who helped make this happen!
