Ethereal Romance- Styled Shoot

This styled shoot was the vision of friends and wedding pros- Rachel of Rachel Lyn Events and Michelle of Light and Arrow Photography.

Here’s a word about the shoot from Michelle…

Rachel and I agreed off the bat we wanted a soft, romantic, and ethereal look for the shoot. Over a few weeks’ time, I developed a look in mind for the model and gown that originated from my ongoing love for film photography and dreamy spring pastels. When we met our model Libby, the rest was history.

All the images were shot on film to curate the fine art aesthetic we were inspired by. We think what makes this shoot special is the venue where it took place, Rust Manor, a beautiful historic gem in the Northern Virginia area”.
