When photographer Kat Wooten recently sent over photos from a Kansas City, styled shoot, I was immediately struck by the bright, bold colors. A few years ago we held our own Indie Wed event in KC so I was excited to see some familiar names involved with this shoot.
The vendor team came up with a concept that was a little dark and moody incorporating the concept of ‘forbidden fruit’ into the lush florals. The models are stunning set among the Ha Ha Tonka Castle Ruins, which has its own history set in sadness and grief, starting with a fatal car accident and ending with a devastating fire.
Despite the haunting setting, these vendors delivered an inspirational shoot with elements that any couple could mimic. The cut cantaloupe was the most unexpected element and just proves that thinking out-of-the-box can produce beautiful results.
