Bonnie & Clyde - Styled Shoot - St. Louis Union Station

We LOVE styled shoots!  We love the ability to just be as creative as we possibly can be.  We had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with the fantastic Denver Wedding Photography Jewels Gray while we were in St. Louis!  Magical things happen when you get more than one wedding photographer together!  It's always great to look back at history and think about famous or legendary couples of the past.  During the Great Depression one of the couples in American history was Bonnie and Clyde.  Jewels became pretty obsessed with the legend and love story of Bonnie and Clyde and imagined "what if they got married?"  What would it look like? 

Fun Fact: Many people are unaware that Bonnie and Clyde were never actually married.  Bonnie actually married at 16 to a boy named Roy Thornton.  She eventually left him before going on her crime spree with Clyde but never actually divorced Thornton.

With us being from Washington, DC, at the time, and Jewels being from Denver we obviously couldn't fly with an entire table setting, so Jewels found the lovely ladies from An Affair to Remember to help us with a place setting. 

So take a look through the past and get lost in the 1930's made possible by the wonderful history at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel and imagine the marriage of Bonnie and Clyde!

What famous couple in history would YOU like to be a guest at their wedding?  Or even emulate in your own wedding?  Leave us a comment!  Maybe that will be our next styled shoot!

Sometimes you want to just take gorgeous bridal images without the stress of time crunches and let the creativity of each vendor run absolutely wild.  That is why we do Styled Shoots.  We get vendors together and tell them the sky is the limit!  Do what you do best!  Show us what you got!  Luckily we had the opportunity to collaborate with another local amazing photographer named Ken Pak who coordinated this amazing group of vendors together and we created a cohesive rustic theme and let our vendors run wild.  We were able to spend the whole day capturing the beauty of the Inn at Kelly's Ford and the creativity of these amazing vendors with the help of our amazingly gorgeous model bride Emily!  So take a moment and just taken in all the beauty below and maybe borrow a few ideas for your own wedding or event!  All of the vendor information is listed down below for your enjoyment!  Please tell them Chris and Brandy sent you!
