This weekend I had a unique opportunity to spend the day in eastern WA doing a photo shoot with the very talented duo of Lacey Yantis and Aaron Blank, Seattle wedding photographers extraordinaire and nationally acclaimed owners of Visions of Romance.
It was a gorgeous day for a photo shoot, so with my car packed full of vintage wedding gowns, antique veils, vintage jewelry and accessories, a steamer, an iron and a camera...I headed out east to Canyon River Ranch.
Canyon River Ranch is nestled along the Yakima River tucked in among the hills with gorgeous views of the massive canyon walls and crystal clear water. The river is known for it's world class fly fishing and the scenery isn't bad either. LOL. It's a gorgeous location for a photo shoot and a perfect venue for a rustic destination wedding.
Once at the lodge it was time for a quick set-up and steaming of all the gowns and veils.
Kim Richards from Lollie Fleur was also on hand to provide gorgeous bouquets and floral decor for the shoot.
Here are a few sneak peeks of what we shot...
After the photo shoot, we all went out to dinner at The Yellow Church Cafe in Ellensburg...delicious meal! I loved the quote on the wall in the cafe.
I had so much fun working on this shoot and am grateful to Lacey and her husband Aaron for inviting me to participate. If you are planning a wedding in WA, do yourself a favor and check out the ranch, as well as the impressive portfolios of Lacey, Aaron and Kim for your wedding photo and floral needs. These professionals were a dream to work with and their work really speaks for itself....amazing! If you missed the links above, here they are again:

As soon as I get some photos back from the shoot, I'll be sure to share my favorites. I'll also be listing the three vintage wedding dresses and six vintage/antique veils from the shoot in my Etsy shop, BrassPaperclip.
