bohemian bride and groom. {charlottesville creative wedding photography}

“The modern picture of the artist began to form: The poor, but free spirit, plebeian but aspiring only to be classless, to cut himself forever free from the bonds of the greedy bourgeoisie, to be whatever the fat burghers feared most, to cross the line wherever they drew it, to look at the world in a way they couldn’t see, to be high, live low, stay young forever — in short, to be the bohemian.”

-Thomas Wolfe

it’s hard to conjure up the right words to describe how i feel about these photos. so instead of trying to bring to life the bohemian spirit with my words, i leave you to my images. for that is what i do best.

i took so many photos of the bride that i decided to hold a few for my next post in a few days. ¬†mallory and michael were a joy to work with, and really quite hilarious. i think i was laughing the whole time, especially as we bounded up and down the hills of the vineyard in a golf cart. i haven’t driven one since i was 13 years old and i’m sure they were holding on for dear life. ūüôā oh! and if you are looking for some inspiration, mallory is the creator of the beautiful and inspiring blog a strong aesthetic. please check it out if you have a chance!

also, after much research, i finally made the decision to become a sponsor on the incredible, creative, diy wedding blog postcards and pretties. christina puts together hands-down the most beautiful inspiration boards for brides and creatives alike. i adore everything she features and am so thankful to be part of her website.

oh, and today is the last day to enter the anthropologie giveaway! i’m excited to draw and announce the winner on thursday!

    Okay, Tahni. I follow your blog on reader but I just had to hop on to comment on this. Holy awesome. I love the third pic of the bride looking away… and I love that you maintain a different palette for the groom and the bride throughout. It as if she is a dream he isn’t quite sure could be true.ReplyCancel

    These are some of your best yet. I feel like their personalities are coming out in the pictures and I don’t even know them. What a beautiful bride! What a talented photographer you are to capture the beauty.

    I love you and am so proud of you and your work!ReplyCancel

    Oh my goodness, Tahni, your photos just keep getting better and better. I really love how every shoot you do has a unique soul to it, just like the couples themselves. No two alike.

    The words “I’m proud of you” come to mind – is that cheesy and wrong? Oh well, I don’t care, I’ll say it anyway.ReplyCancel

    Tahni – these might be my favorite engagement yet! There is something that you captured about the groom that is really amazing! I also really like the one with her elbow on his shoulder.

    And the ones with the sticks are such a fun twist!ReplyCancel
