When photographer's Justin & Mary
and event planner Stacie Shea
asked us to style their upcoming 'Walk Through a Wedding' we jumped at the chance! And just when we thought it couldn't get better, we heard the shoot was to feature our real bride (shared with Justin & Mary), Kayla and her new groom Brendon.
"Just what is a 'Walk through a Wedding'?", you might ask. Well, it is a styled shoot in which Justin & Mary
walk aspiring photographers through a lovely 'how to' of everything that is wedding photography- from bride & groom portions, to action shots, to wedding details. Â The shoot took place at The Lace Factory
and featured soft and romantic details. We styled the bride in a lace gown with a nude underlay from our The White Dress by the shore Private Label collection. Its delicate neckline and intricate pattern picked up on all of the darling touches from the shoot. We paired the gown with vintage jewels from The Something Old Collection
as well as a custom hair flower.

Here's a few works from the always lovely, Stacie Shea:
"Â Justin and Mary Marantz put on the Walk Through A Wedding series for two days of amazing action packed information on what it takes to be a wedding photographer. The first day is typically all shooting and walking through each step of the wedding day as if Justin and Mary were actually shooting it. They cover everything from the getting ready to a dark church to posing the couple to shooting the reception complete with killer details.
Justin and Mary start bright and early at their home in New Haven talking about the âWhyâ and the first day typically goes all day winding up with some fantastic night shooting. Throughout the first day they cover all those trouble spots like posing an unruly bridal party, organizing the family shots, off-camera lighting at the church and reception, what to do if you only have 10 minutes for the portraits, and how to have a game plan to shoot the reception details before they get destroyed. Everything for this amazing workshop is set up to be just like a real wedding, so this is literally a one stop shot for all those things that many photographers struggle with.
This past May an amazing team of vendors paired up to help put this workshop on for Justin and Mary at the Lace Factory in Deep River, CT. Justin and Mary work together to select a color palette that they would like to work with for the shoot and then Stacie Shea and her team paired what they feel are the most perfect lineup of vendors to match the theme. This workshop was based on Tweed, light blue and teal shades."
