The Love Note: An Intimate Elopement Styled Shoot

Many of us have either given or received a love note from a secret admirer, or know of someone who has. Stylist, Laurel Robinson of Vision Expressions, can recall a few of her own, so she wanted this shoot to tell a story of love – but from a gentleman’s perspective. A poetic, hopeful romantic, whose love for writing, unlocked the key to the heart of the most beautiful woman who became the apple of his eye. Romantic details were captured by the talented Horn Photography & Design and recorded by the amazing cinematographer Kevin Hursh Films. From hues of ivory and blue lush floral from A Delicate Petal by Melissa, to plant dyed ribbon from Silk & Willow, to the intricate lace wedding dress by CTO Bridals, and to the hand lettered loves notes from Along the Lines by KB penned on delicate paper by That Grace Restored, this romantic shoot bubbles over with fervent passion and embodies a slow-burning romance that ignites a long-lasting flame.
