There is no bigger honor than being asked to photograph a fellow creative, especially one in the wedding industry – so you can imagine my excitement when I got the opportunity to plan a branding photoshoot with one of my favorite planners in the area, Emma of Émerveillé Events! Émerveillé is based out of both Seattle & London, and we share a very similar group of clientele who love to bring upscale NYC/London vibes to Seattle. So you can imagine we had a blast dreaming up this shoot 😉 I cannot WAIT for you to make your way through this stunning gallery from Emma’s elegant & modern wedding planner branding photoshoot!
Before we dive into all the goodness this shoot brought to life, let me brag a little on Emma & her team for a quick minute. I firmly believe that wedding planners are an incredible investment for engaged couples to make in order to have the most seamless + stress-free day possible, and Émerveillé Events provide just that to each of their clients! They’re a Seattle and London-based wedding planning team who prides themselves on modern & elegant design, intentional attention to detail, and professional planning services. I wish EVERY couple could hire a team like Emma’s who are so dedicated to bringing their clients’ unique visions to life and ensuring that every detail reflects their personal style + tastes!
Émerveillé Events offers a to-die-for menu of wedding services, ranging from full-service planning, to design, to day-of management. No matter what level of professional help you’re looking for, they’ll be ready to serve the hell out of you and bring their unique sophisticated, luxurious touch to your day + leave you with an unforgettable experience.
To bring their modern and elegant branding vision to life, we rented out a gorgeous studio space in the city, 210 Studio! Located in one of my favorite parts of Seattle, the historic Pioneer Square, 210 Seattle is a beautiful space boasting white exposed brick walls, elegant furnishings, and dreamy south & west-facing windows. This was an absolutely perfect location for a sophisticated and luxurious branding photoshoot, with white walls that served as the dreamiest backdrop for the detailed tablescapes. And the windows that let in beautiful soft light & delicious harsh shadows for me to play around with?! Chef’s kiss.
If you love this iconic Seattle neighborhood just as much as I do, you won’t want to miss this Colorful Downtown Seattle Elopement in Pioneer Square!
If you’ve ever done a branding shoot for your business, you might think that brand photos should just include YOU. But I’m a big believer that your branding photos should not just be of you, the mastermind behind your precious business, but should also incorporate details that help tell the story of what you do. Your brand photos should encapsulate the WHY behind what you do and should represent the meaningful transformation you deliver to your clients! That’s why I help my branding clients define their brand first & foremost, before we collaborate to bring their vision to life✨
Now bringing it back to this specific shoot: we wanted Émerveillé’s brand photos to embody elegance, effortless sophistication, and luxury. To help bring this vision to life, we incorporated all kinds of props and details that represented that upscale, refined taste that Emma & her team love so much, including elegant floral bouquets, sparkling bottles of perfume, pearl necklaces, and my personal favorite – Louboutin heels💖 These small details combined with the absolutely breathtaking tablescape that Emma set up, helped us create a gallery of branding photos not just featuring her & her fabulous team, but showcasing the luxury and beauty they center their design around. Having an abundance of branding photos like these, taken under different lighting and in different settings, has made the Émerveillé Events website look absolutely STUNNING, and so cohesive on every dang page. I am in love!
We of course had to take plenty of photos of Emma and her amazing team, but these aren’t your classic brand portraits – no, we got creative with them and I am obsessed with how they turned out! Getting in front of the camera to represent your business doesn’t have to be boring, and your brand portraits don’t have to look like everybody else’s. Take a lesson out of Emma’s book and grab a bouquet of white roses, a bridal veil, and toast to the incredible business you’ve created!🥂 Absolutely loved the all-black outfits that everyone rocked – now that’s a team I want to hire🔥What a fun, creative, and beautifully unique wedding planner branding photoshoot this was!
Thank you to the rest of the vendors who contributed to this joy of a shoot!
