Naples Zoo Photoshoot 2012

Jet Set Wed has once again teamed up with the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens for their annual photo contest. We styled this year’s shoot and also scouted the beautiful couple at a local Bridal Show. Naples Zoo invited several local photographers that had 30 minutes to take all the pictures they could! It was so fun to watch all the photographers creativity come alive during these shoots and also how these photographers work under pressure. Check out their story boards!

From Kehrin about the Design:

The challenge we were given was to create a safari styled shoot in a glamorous way to inspire future brides that may consider the Caribbean Gardens for their wedding.  The floral designers at Lyfe of the Party were perfect for the job. By mixing rich colors that you would find in the safari like deep red’s and neutrals paired with patterns native to that region we were able to create a color palate that made you feel like you were in a luxurious camp-like setting.  Then we layered on some feathers, gold and crystal for a glamorous feel. Styling the couple was a challenge that came together at the last-minute.  Rolling up the cuffs of the grooms Calvin Klien pant legs and adding a Ralph Lauren safari inspired hat really made the swanky look have a safari edge. The brides hair and makeup done by Gabbi of Face by Frohmberg was intended to give the her a wild animal appeal.  The dress borrowed from For The Bride actually came with a lace overlay that we decided not to use in order to allow the metal Stella & Dot collar to be the focus point.  I knew I hit the jackpot when I stumbled across this couple at a bridal show only weeks before the shoot was scheduled.  I couldn’t have asked for a better muse.
