We’re delighted to share this next shoot with you all, inspired by photographer Athena Pelton‘s love of all things etsy and handmade. Nearly everything from the photoshoot is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, right down to the bride’s wedding gown with touches of blush pink! Prepare yourself for some eye candy styled by the wonderful Nadia of A Fine Fete Events and some handmade greatness.
From the photographer, Athena: I recently designed and shot an inspiration shoot styled around my vintage dressmaker sewing machine. As I was pulling inspiration for the shoot, I found myself on Etsy all. day. long. Looking for inspiration, and perusing the beautiful handmade goodness that abounds.
Being a knitter, sewer, and all-around-craft-maven myself, I cherish handmade, and saw this as an amazing opportunity to celebrate the fantastic resources that Etsy provides and style a wedding shoot around vintage love – and handmade details. The design of the shoot itself isn’t groundbreaking, but the concept behind using as many handmade items as possible (including the one-of-a-kind blush gown!) is something that any bride can embrace.
