Holiday Elopement Inspiration

Holiday Elopement Inspiration | Kel Ward Photography

"High Shadows loom on the garden walls.
They tremble in the winter’s breeze.
As from the heavens power falls,
they mimic the naked limbs of trees.

They tremble in the winter’s breeze;
forlorn, they sway as low winds moan.
they mimic naked limbs of trees.
Frail shadows now have thicker grown.

Forlorn, they sway as low winds moan.
The winds surcease, no more to blow. 
Frail shadows now have thicker grown.
On arms of trees are coats of snow!

The winds surcease, no more to blow.
As from the heavens power falls,
on arms of trees are coats of snow. 
High shadows loom on garden walls."

-Andrea Dietrich

 

Words from the photographer -

"

Now that you’ve taken in the gorgeous gown by Kate’s Couture, I thought I’d share a little bit about this winter elopement inspiration shoot. Obviously, the inspiration for this shoot was the couture gown with white fur vest. Because it’s the perfect thing to wear for a winter wedding, we paired it with a bit of Christmas plaid. John wore a simple black suite, with the holiday inspired shirt, and a black velvet bowtie. Kelsey, who rocks her bald head (she has Alopecia) like nobody’s business, donned a whimsical crown, made by my girl, Amanda, at Morning Glories Floral.

As the winter sun kissed our models, we walked around the grounds of Historic Deepwood Estate, here in Salem, Oregon, to create these images."

This was a hybrid project for me, with the film images being created with a Canon EOS-3 and the digital images with a Canon 5D MarkII. From the attire, to the florals, to the venue, we were blessed with a variety of textures.
