Styled Shoot- Chautauqua Park Boulder

Styled Shoot- Chautauqua Park Boulder

December was a busy month! Right after the Boulder’s styled shoot, I was busy working on invitations and RSVP cards for this elopement styled shoot.

I was originally asked by the photographer to help out on this shoot. She sent me the mood board and the airy feeling of the board made me so excited to work on this project plus, I love Chautauqua Park in Boulder. She had tons of pretty light blue flowers and mixed with pretty off white roses. I was so excited to create stationery that had the same feeling of these beautiful pictures. This group of people I worked with were absolutely amazing! They had an Instagram group message put together quickly so we could all collaborate and chat with each other before the shoot even happened. I loved the coordination and communication that happened during this process. It made my job a lot easier because I knew exactly what the photographer and planner had in mind.

The day of the shoot, a typical Colorado snow came which was not what we had all planned on. It was 30 degrees that day, howling wind and snow. I was a little uneasy because I actually hate the snow. I think it’s beautiful from inside my house, on my couch and under a blanket. Any other time I have to be in the snow, I’m pretty miserable. I layered up, strapped on my heavy duty winter boots for temperatures of -40 degrees and made my way to Chautauqua Park. When I got there, I was amazed at how many people were at the park walking around. Loads of people were walking their dogs or going for a brisk jog up the hill. “Crazy Coloradans” I thought to myself. I worked up the nerve to go outside and funny enough, I parked right next to the planner and photographer so finding people wasn’t going to be as big of a mission as expected.

We gathered all of our members for this shoot and the weather began to grow colder. The models showed up and we immediately began to hike up the hill to find out spot to start shooting! Even though it was freezing and snow was everywhere, the location we found was absolutely stunning. A faint fog was hovering over the snow capped mountains and and flurries of snow was surrounding us. I was shivering and doing all I could to stay warm. The model was so cold and we all took turns holding her jacket then putting it back on her in between shots. Despite the bitter cold, the pictures speak for themselves.They turned out perfectly and almost dream like. It was the perfect day for a styled shoot and we ended up getting a beautiful winter wonderland wedding.

Just look at this! I love how dreamy this shoot was. You’d never know we were all shivering our butts off because the models did such a wonderful job.

I love ring detail shots 😍 The brightness of this picture just makes that ring shine and the flower details in the background is stunning!

The planner set up a little picnic area for the cake and stationery to be set up. The colors of the cake and stationery match perfectly and let me tell you about the cake... It was DELICIOUS! Tiny bits of caramel pieces in the middle and so much chocolate filling... perfection! 😋

What do you think? Is this flower fake or real? Fondant or natural? 🧐
