NYE en Blanc - Styled Inspiration Shoot - Calgary Wedding Photographer

I get asked to do some pretty beautiful styled shoots from time to time and this one was no different. NYE En Blanc was presented to me by a fabulous pair of ladies who wanted to combine the fun, lighthearted vibe of a NYE party with a sweet surprise proposal!

The shoot was held at Venue 308. A newer wedding venue here in yyc and it was my first time visiting the location. All I can say is wow! Such a beautiful space. Exposed brick walls, industrial ceilings and a touch of elegance added with modern chandeliers. I could see why the ladies had chosen this space for the styled shoot; it fit their vision perfectly!

En Blanc of course meant there was white everywhere! Florals, stationary, even the models attire was white. And it looked fabulous. Something about that crisp white palette just popped against the rust colored brick!

The table design was something out of a magazine! So simple, clean and modern.

The ladies also created a lounge area for the shoot, with a beautiful wall feature; "Midnight Kisses and New Year Wishes".

I'm also a sucker for beautiful stationary... It is one of my favorite things to photograph. Hellooo flatlays!

And now it's time to get the party started! The models were SO great. What a gorgeous, fun group of humans!

The ladies each wore white but their outfits were all very unique. And they looked amazing in them. My personal fave was Sam's jumpsuit; to die for!

The guys were super handsome in their simple white dress shirts and grey pants.

And probably my top image of the day; this "Vogue" shot we snapped right at the end of the shoot. Sometimes the best images come when you least expect it!

Thank you to ALL the amazing vendors involved in this shoot. And thank you ladies for asking me to be a part of it ;) It was a great way to end 2019 with our feature on the Confetti Magazine Blog! Take a look at more images from this shoot after the vendor list! -Melanie Xx
