A Magical Garden Spring Inspiration Shoot

LONDON TOWN GARDENS | MAGICAL GARDEN INSPIRATION SHOOT | MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

 A small note from Amanda: I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but I LOVE a good story. Disney stories have my heart and fairy tales are the essence of my being. So every now and then I feel the urge to start writing again; to cultivate a beautiful world with engaging characters and a lively scenery. And it works out so beautifully when I have a styled shoot, because how many times can you say “The florals were out of this world, and the couple was the sweetest” before it starts to feel inauthentic and tired? Inspiration shoots really are the perfect opportunity for me to spin a tale of romance and intrigue, while also showcasing some of my best work. So please enjoy “The Magic Garden”

A Magical, Gorgeous Bridal Extravaganza

On this warm April afternoon at The Londontown Gardens the lone gazebo is laced with greenery, the sides dripping crystals casting prism glows everywhere you turn. The garden is in full bloom and the sun shines brightly above. In enter 5 beautiful ladies adorned in the finest lace and tulle. Now let the gorgeousness take you away and let the story begin…

Five ladies are ready for their story to take flight. Let’s see where it takes them

The Discovery

Talking and laughing the girls clamor along the clearing until they come across a garden hidden from view and are delighted with the surprise growing inside of each flower… Jewels for the neck, hands and ears bloom out of the buds, glistening and sparkling in the light. Every detail is finer and more magical than the next. Jewels and pearls dance before their eyes….

Turning the corner

They all find their way down a dirt path and upon turning the corner they find themselves in complete awe at the whimsical scene before them: A lone bridge stands draped with flowers, glass balls glisten in the evening sun. A warm breeze draws one of the girls attention upwards and she notices the tiny unique flowers perched inside of each ball. Swaying in the breeze the girls are filled with glee and begin dancing and laughing amongst their discovery…
