“There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky…”
– ERIN HANSON
Texas air is rich with the promise of freedom and hums with untamed nature. Live oak trees dot the landscape with tangential branches that reach for realms unseen… At the Kayla Barker Photography Workshop, the styled lushness was a welcome sight to these eyes that have been looking at a winter landscape in the Northeast a little too long.
Artful and wild, thoughtful and brimming, the organic florals from Bows and Arrows Flowers with precision styling by Mayhard Design provided the perfect backdrop to let creative freedom flow at the beautiful wedding venue Prospect House in Dripping Springs, Texas. All vendors spoiled us completely — and I can’t say enough about the Watters and Elias Gurrola gowns and that flawless hair and make-up by Makenzi Laine. Thanks to Kayla Barker and her thoughtful teaching to show how to elevate visual storytelling on a wedding day through film photography (this workshop was also an amazing canvas to try more double-exposure portraiture).
And a very special shout-out to the models & real-life couple Abbey and Weston who recently celebrated their one-year anniversary — guys, you know I love a good anniversary — with not one but two special dates they planned for each other plus this styled session. They were simply glowed with happiness…
Many thanks to the talented folks who attended as I learned so much from them as well and the vendors below who had a hand in bringing Kayla’s concept to life and letting us share in this lush and organic details of the Texas workshop!
