Circus Styled Shoot

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up!

We recently teamed up with Melissa McCrotty and a few of her senior models for a prom and bridal styled shoot, and we decided to do something totally different than anything we've done in the past. We wanted to do something big and dramatic and with tons of over the top details, so our team worked with Melissa to create a shoot inspired by The Greatest Showman and the circus! Melissa has wanted to do a vintage circus themed shoot for a long time, and we're thrilled that it finally came together so beautifully. This shoot included lots of bold red, as well as several vintage circus inspired props: a top hat, gold hoops, a vintage trunk, beautiful headpieces, vintage circus posters, and so much more. My favorite details were the gorgeous red drapes at The Barn's doors and the amazing red gowns! 

Have you guys seen The Greatest Showman yet? I may or may not have watched it twice already! ;) Many of the gorgeous details from this shoot reminded me of the amazing costumes and set designs from the movie, especially the sparkly hairpieces, the gorgeous gowns, and of course, the very P.T. Barnum top hat! If you're already a fan of the movie, turn on your Greatest Showman soundtrack (I know you bought it) and get ready to scroll through the prettiest circus of all time!
