Colorful May Day Styled Shoot in Beaver Creek, Colorado

A couple of months ago we had the privilege of participating in an oh-so-fun and Colorful May Day Styled Shoot in Beaver Creek, Colorado. You guys. If you’ve never been to this gorgeous mountain resort town I highly recommend a visit. The mastermind behind this styled event was Laura Pearson, wedding planner and founder of L Elizabeth Events.  Laura selected the luxurious Park Hyatt Beaver Creek for her playful May Day inspired photo session and recruited the uber talented Meredith Harris, of Meredith Harris Photography to capture every moment.  While the original plan was for an outdoor, sunshine filled event, the spring-time Colorado weather had other plans…snow and rain. This seasoned Denver wedding planner and her A-list vendors were not the least bit bothered. They popped open some fabulous over-sized umbrellas, grabbed a pair of stripped rain boots for the bride, and created a lovely outdoor rain-filled photo sesh! Watch how it all came to life with this video captured by Visualanties. The second portion of the photoshoot was moved inside various rooms at the Park Hyatt and we think you’ll agree the quick change was a winner-winner chicken dinner!

Have you every heard of Wet plate photography?  Wet plate collodion is a process that dates back to 1850 and was used until about the 30’s. Commonly known as tintypes, they began to fall out of favor in 1870 once paper was invented. The photographs are created chemically. You can tell from these beautiful images below, that it’s not a style, it’s a process. A labor of love if you will.

We were lucky enough to have some incredible artists on hand to help get our drop-dead gorgeous models all dolled up. Makeup by Heather B. and Nicole Toledo Makeup Artistry created fresh-faced dewy looks for our bride models that had their skin glowing in all the right places. Our hair stylist and braid extraordinaire Jessica Marquez, created soft loose braids to compliment. I have to mention that all of these artists are as lovely as they are talented.
