Featured | Romantic Lakeside Elopement on 100 Layer Cake


It’s been an exciting week – first we found out that baby Burns is a boy, and now one of our favorite styled shoot was featured on 100 Layer Cake! It’s always such a joy to get to collaborate with other local vendors and this shoot was no exception! We’ve been keeping these hush hush since December and it’s been killing us! Kari Ellen Events put together an amazing blue inspired styled shoot at Avalon Legacy Ranch with a killer team of vendors that we were honored to be a part of. You can see the feature on 100 Layer Cake here, but we also wanted to share our faves and some fun behind the scenes photos!


If you saw our Behind the Scenes post, you may have seen these behind the scenes snapshots, but if you missed it, here’s the craziness that was going on to make these GORGEOUS shots!


It was ALL hands on deck to make this boat scene a reality. We were under a pop up canopy to keep our models dry while we waited for the rain to clear. We ended up with a very small window to get the shots.


Glamorous hair and make-up prep? Not so much! The Erin Blair team changed Hannah’s hair under the tent!


When we realized our boat didn’t have an oar, we had to get creative. We pushed them out and quickly realized they couldn’t steer very well at all with that pipe, so Kari jumped in and every time I needed her to move them, she would pop up and turn it!



You’re seriously the best, Kari! I love this shot of you, don’t hate me! ;)
