Happy Friday, cakies! Hope your weekends are all as sunny as the farmers market e-sesh we’ve got for ya today. Shelly of Shelly Goodman Photography captured PJ + Jillian in the most natural, yet beautifully styled way, complete with a picnic, pie, and vintage props, all at St. Louis’ Historic Soulard Farmers Market (founded in 1779!).
Aren’t these two the cutest? They walked around the farmers market gathering food and flowers for their evening picnic, and ended up with an awesome spread to enjoy and photograph.
Shelly says, We found a dreamy little spot for the picnic. You wouldn’t guess it, but it was by some old railroad tracks, a busy street, a rusting old billboard sign, and a self-serve car wash. But it was perfect – the sun was setting and illuminating the tiny bits of cottonwood flowing in the breeze.
Their fashion? Hipster-urban. They sure do wear it well!
Props from Making Pies Vintage Props made for a charming, eclectic spread.
A blueberry galette sounds like the perfect end to a farmers market meal, no?
Congrats Jillian and PJ!

Anyone else still blown away by yesterday’s handmade wedding gown? Well this shoot popped up in the 100lc inbox just in time to continue our love affair with bridal fashion. The team behind RomaBea Images and Studio Mamas came together to show off Bel Aire Bridal’s elegant bridal accessories. With gowns from Lovella Bridal, they created quite a few timeless looks to inspire.
Beatrice of RomaBea Images tells it, Each stunning headpiece and veil was highlighted by the ethereal surroundings of the Chateau, which inspired us to infuse a little French romance into all the lovely details. From the florals, to the silk ribbons that wrapped around them, and beautiful calligraphy french love letters, it was the epitome of chic, and truly inspiring to shoot.
Something sparkly to add even more to an already stunning bouquet…
BTW, how lovely does Kimberly Crest Estate seem for a venue?!
That hair! Gotta hand it to hairstylist Marianna Bayramian of Chateau Salon on this one.
Yeah… definitely swooning over these romantic, looping letters by Written Word Calligraphy.
Fabulous work, everyone!
