Michelle Royal is not only an amazing makeup artist, but a friend of ours! So when she reached out with a shoot in mind, we were on board! She was thinking dark, romantic, and in a cemetery. UM YES please! We knew we wanted something a little spooky in the background, so we used smoke bombs in the background for some extra texture. We chose a fitted gown by Anna Campbell, that is dripping in rhinestones, and has gorgeous lace cap sleeves. And the cake by Wicked Cakes? Hands down one of our favorites we have ever had for a shoot! Wait until you see it! Photography by Callie Beale Photography and recently featured on A Lowcountry Wedding.
We wanted the bouquet to be large, and a little wild. We used burgundy roses and mums, as well as lush greenery, to create a bouquet that was romantic, but a little edgy. The shades of red go perfect with Michelle's deep lip!
