Bohemian Wedding Inspiration : Iron Eden

February 5, 2014

Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers (46)

Carmel, owner of Mt. Lebanon Floral, and I came together with the idea of doing a styled photo shoot to inspire soon-to-be brides. We immediately reached out to Ansley, owner of Bliss Events Ltd, to bring other vendors on board and Erin, owner of Glitter & Grit bridal boutique, to style our models with some fabulously creative and unique wedding gowns.

As creatives we were all struck by the similarity of tone in our work. We had felt a sense of destiny in our new camaraderie, as if we had merged as a “dream team.” Together, our vision was to create a shoot that appears as if it is a dream; but a dream which can manifest as a beautiful and achievable reality.

Iron Eden’s entryway, surrounded by weeds and sheltered above by the floor of the Bloomfield Bridge, opened to a creative studio space full of tactile, rusted beams, and new pieces of swirling iron creations. We were immediately overcome with visions of the photo shoot set in this amazing backdrop.

On the day of the styled shoot, it was hot. Actually, it was overwhelmingly hot at a few points. We left the day a sweaty mess of people. But it was beautiful. So many vendors, people with a passion, working together, perfectly in sync, to create one magical day to inspire you all.
