Moody & Trendy: An Intimate Stylized Elopement for the Modern Bride


Designed with the trendy, indie couple in mind, this stylized elopement pairs modern simplicity with the perfect pop of color. Featuring the sweetest engaged couple, this shoot was the chance to give Hannah and Luke a more intimate experience leading up to their wedding. They’re set to have a big, traditional wedding this summer (with 600 people!) so these pre-wedding styled photos offered Hannah and Luke a completely different atmosphere for them to connect.

Set on Heiser Farms in Dayton, Oregon, we love how traditional elements are combined with a modern twist in this shoot: The bride’s simple and elegant gown paired with a dramatic open back. An old farm in Oregon paired with indie decor. A neutral palette paired with pops of blue and orange.

Sarah Olivia Photo captures the day perfectly for us:

“We wanted to bring a more modern style to a farm setting for this shoot. We sourced amazing decor, florals and the perfect dress for the occasion. Although Hannah and Luke are from a smaller town, they have a modern sense of style so we wanted to capture that by taking the shoot more streamlined in decor. We loved the juxtaposition of a modern setting in such a traditional farm environment. Our tables and florals had more clean lines and a neutral color palette. We used a lot of blues and chromes which are more current than the traditional wedding golds.

The whole day was so much fun and so special. Our favorite moments were watching Hannah slip into the dress for the first time and watching her have her first look with Luke. They have never seen one another dressed for a wedding before and their reactions were so sweet. It was really amazing to create that moment for such a special couple. “
