Captain America :: 1940's Styled Shoot
THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER!
So the wait maybe hasn't been so long for you JSP lovers + friends but it's been excruciatingly long for me! As you saw (or didn't see) from my live tweeting my first styled shoot, this is it. I've been waiting since JANUARY to share these photos with you! Due to timing and other boring behind the scenes things it's taken me some time to share these photos with you. Now the day has finally come!
One cold, January day an incredible team of vendors and two beautiful people gathered to meet me at the Omni Severin hotel to let me take pictures. I believe it was bout 4 degrees outside and incredibly windy. But it was beautiful. In light of the upcoming Captain America sequel: The Winter Soldier releasing in April, I set off to create a Captain America styled wedding shoot. With the incredibly huge help of Sarah Cooper of Cooper Events we accomplished the goal of a Captain America styled shoot. We wanted to show brides how to incorporate Captain America into their wedding in a classy way instead of it coming off kitchy or themey. At a beautiful location, with beautiful flowers, a beautiful dress, and a beautiful "bride" and "groom. Everything was just BEA-U-TI-FUL! I loved it! Was it a wedding day? No. DId I capture beautiful images to use for my portfolio and for other members of the creative team to use for their portfolio? Yes. Was it worth it? YES!
Because this wasn't a real wedding day, I don't have a lot of storytelling commentary to give you. Because of that I will just give you some amazing photos and little bits of who contributed to each photo. Enjoy!

So that's it for my first styled shoot! Big shout out to Alexa Scheele and Andrew Fry for being my super wicked awesome models that day! You guys rocked my face off! Thanks for being the amazing people you are and donating your very precious time (and driving from Ft. Wayne) to come let me take your photo! It was awesome!
And again thanks to Sarah for doing most of the literal and proverbial heavy lifting of this shoot. She organized it all, I literally just showed up and took the pictures. So if you need a planner for your wedding, you really should contact her at Cooper Events becuase she's pretty awesome. And damn good at her job if I do say so myself.
Thank you to all of the vendors involved! I would love to work with you again soon! You were ALL awesome!
Until next time lovers and friends. Keep rockin'!
