Feast your eyes on this series of incredible images by Alberta-based shooter, Chloe Buie. Romantically and beautifully captured, here's what Chloe had to say about organizing this shoot: I held my first ever Workshop in the beautiful town of Drumheller at the beginning of Summer and it was a dream come true! Along with teaching photographers how I run my business, how to target certain clients and what my workflow consists of, I wanted to treat them to a fully styled bridal session in the desert with some of Alberta's top vendors. I'm drawn to bright pastels complete with lace and floral crowns, so I wanted to do something completely different really bringing the desert-like feel to life. As soon as my stylist and I found ourselves in conversation, the ideas and color palettes began buzzing! I wanted to inspire other photographers to think outside the box and have them know that you can literally do anything, anywhere!

Kayla is a wedding photographer, and an amazing hit on Instagram. Here's some back story: Kayla and her husband Tyler never had an actual "wedding" which meant no amazing photos. When Kayla's friend and wedding shooter, Jordon Birch decided to open a wedding venue, on her own real life farm fixer upper, she knew the perfect "past bride" to which to present this opportunity. Kayla wore an amazing rose gown, and her groom was extra dapper in an all black ensemble..Several vendor friends worked together to pull off the ultimate "days after" shoot for these two extra deserving people, and of course, it didn't hurt that The Burch House, now had some amazing images to launch their brand new wedding venue.

Over the years I've done some of my best work creating designs for tiny people, or to be more precise, flower girls.  Some are now married themselves which gives you an idea how long I've been at it!  Hopefully these images will give you inspiration on everything from dress to florals . . . .Either making the trek down the aisle or weaving in and out of festivities, kids add a bright and energetic tone to any wedding. In Europe, kids make up the wedding party almost entirely. Remember Lady Diana's wedding to Prince Charles in 1981? Her eldest attendant was a junior bridesmaid. The rest were taffeta-clad flower girls and pages dressed in the traditional costume of the English Court. Whatever theme or direction your wedding takes, children's fashion usually echoes that of the wedding party.  These images above and below are from my own wedding that sported a Scottish Highland theme
 Above: Not young enough to be a flower girl; not quite old enough to play bridesmaid, so how do you dress her? Actually junior bridesmaids have been gracing European weddings for centuries where the bridal party is made up primarily of children ranging in age from about four to sixteen. So how does a girl between 8 and 16 dress? By fourteen she can probably go with or a least echo the adult bridesmaids
 Above: Sierra was a flower girl at my wedding but served as a great model for the sample dresses I turned out once upon a time.  She just gave birth to her own baby who just happens to be my grand-nephew . . . .
Above: My client's daughter as flower girl--how cute is she?
