Normal people celebrate their birthday by having a party with all their friends or going out for dinner and drinks. What do I do on my birthday? Drive 3 hours to Acadia National Park for a styled wedding photo shoot! Duh.
A few weeks ago I discovered this opportunity, planned by Emily of Elusive Photography. She graciously allowed myself and several other photographers to join her in Bar Harbor for a beautiful, bohemian-inspired styled elopement. Styled shoots allow wedding vendors to showcase their products or service in a curated way, without all the hustle of a wedding day!
Cold was an understatement. Jordan and Lindsey were the most amazing sports and looked beautiful without giving just how freezing they were. My birthday present to myself was a down winter jacket from LL Bean (because I’m a sucker for clearance items and can’t say no to a good deal) even when spring is right around the corner, but I was certainly very thankful for the purchase when the wind was whipping across Jordan Pond. I am looking forward to coming back to Acadia and Mount Desert Island on a much, much warmer day this summer and really getting to enjoy the scenery!
Enjoy the photos from this beautiful (and freezing) day in Bar Harbor. Scroll to the bottom to find out more about all the talented vendors who made this styled elopement possible.
gahhh these are amazing! and the confetti shot… totally gorgeous! I love all of them, you captured them so well
I’m sorry, this looks straight out of Vogue! Absolutely stunning. I’m sure it helps that they are clearly natural models! haha
Beautiful job photographing this styled shoot! I love the little details, especially the cake! Maine is definitely one of the most beautiful places ever!
Oh my goodness, this Acadia National Park Styled Shoot is gorgeous!! I love the colors and the sweet candid moments you captured.
Such a cute styled shoot. The models are so lovely together. And I love all the details – the colours are fantastic!
This definitely sounds like my kind of birthday treat! This styled shoot is so gorgeous- the team did such a great job! Are those flower petals towards the end? So beautiful.
Eco-friendly confetti made out of lavendar!
Wow! Wonderful models and beautifully captured! You and the rest of the vendors did a fantastic job! I also super love that cake!
OMG this is just so beautiful! Even though I’m so excited for spring, I have to admit I’m going to miss the snowy wedding photos.
Sounds like a great thing to do on your birthday! lol
Beautiful photos, styled shoots are so much fun. Hope you had a great birthday!
