an autumn theory…

these photos are so dear to my heart…. maybe it’s because it truly shows the beauty of my sweet home alabama. or maybe because this collaboration was crafted with some of my favorite people in the south. (have you met these ladies yet? they’re all so amazing and i am so honored to know them)…. whatever it is, these photographs make my heart feel so full. and i am so happy to share these with you.

i hope you are all having a wonderful christmas season. xoxo

rylee hitchner - hey kelsey! i am not sure. but i know that the style me pretty feature mentioned a lot of details from accessories and such! here you are:

Allan - Stunning! Was this wedding in Paris? My girlfriend would love to get married there…what was the name of the venue?

Veronica - Is this a styled shoot?

rylee hitchner - Yes! Styled by Jessica Sloane! Unfortunately this venue is outside of Paris, although there is a beautiful venue in Paris that has a very similar look that would fit well with this style. My favorite thing about this shoot is that it still feels like Paris, but brings a softer, lighter approach!
