Hello there! My name is Jessica Brass and I own Common Dove Photography. I wanted to share one of my favorite shoots with you today!
I shot this at Wormsloe Historic Site in Savannah, GA. If you haven't visited this place, you really should, the gorgeous trees lining the drive up are absolutely breathtaking. Though this was a styled shoot, the couple pictured is truly in love and was, at the time, recently married. When shooting anything I think one of the most important attributes is the chemistry of the couple involved. Almost anything can look romantic if the two are blissfully in love which is why I adore couples who aren't afraid of a little PDA.
In addition to crazy in love couples, I adore shooting in film. I shot 95% of this in medium format film and it captured the light in the most delightful way. On wedding days, I shoot heavily with my film camera and I'm able to be a lot more versatile. The film simply produces images that are not only timeless, but have an incredible fine art feel to them which I adore.
Not only was the weather perfect on this day but we had a team of absolutely amazing vendors and you can find the full list with links at the end of this post. I hope you love it as much as I do! XO-Jess
Colonial House of Flowers never disappoints with their stunning florals (above). When I shoot I just love to shoot backlit for some of the portraits. I love the sun illuminating the couple...Gime me ALL the sunshine! The path leading into Wormsloe Historic Site is so incredibly dreamy you could shoot just about anything here (below).
The Hayley Paige gown that Carolyn wore is actually two pieces. The dress is topped by a magnificent tulle skirt that comes off to reveal a sultry, form fitting gown. It really had the best of both worlds!
Candid moments like the one below with genuine laughter is a hallmark of my style. I love it when couples relax in front of my camera and get lost in themselves for a bit. That's really the good stuff, folks.
