        Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers Best Photography Veronica Varos

        My inspiration for this styled photo shoot came from my love of the forest, specifically the look and feel of the forest on a bright sunny day. When you’re in the thick of the trees, the ground is covered in dead branches and crushed leaves. There’s a darkness to it – a moodiness. But, when you look up into the canopy of the trees, you see bright colors – lush greens, and animals happily jumping from limb to limb. The sun shines through the leaves and everything is beautiful, light, and airy. It feels alive. The darkness from the forest floor and the light and airy feeling from the canopy above mix together to create a magical, relaxing, and comforting feeling when you walk through a forest. This feeling – this incredibly powerful feeling of warmth and magic was exactly what we tried to recreate with this shoot.

        While outdoor weddings among the trees are becoming more and more popular, we wanted to showcase various aspects and locations to inspire couples around the world. The shoot was based in Frostburg, Maryland at Savage River Lodge – a stunning treasure hidden in the woods and rolling hills of Maryland. We photographed on the hills surrounding the Lodge, at New Germany State Park, and inside one of the Lodge’s luxurious yurts. This styled elopement featured our amazing models, a real-life married couple made up of an actor, Emily, and an acting coach, Vance. Their genuine love for one another shines through in each and every photograph. Just try to look through the images or watch the video without feeling moved by their love.
