Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind Styled Wedding Shoot | Oakwood Photography

Have you ever seen a styled shoot based off of a book or a movie? Well now, you can say that you have! This beautiful session was captured by Alexa, inspired by the book, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Here is what she had to say:

"Sometimes, in the midst of a dark, cold Pennsylvania winter, I find myself so inspired and my body aches to get outside and let my creativity play. I've had this idea for an Eternal-Sunshine-Of-The-Spotless-Mind-type session for a while. I found the perfect location and a lovely past-couple of mine offered to model for the shoot. I wanted to use the frigid-looking lake in Erie as the backdrop, so we planned and made it happen!

Lexi and Tyler put on their wedding attire and met us along the wintery shore of Presque Isle State Park at Lake Erie. Lexi was totally fine with her beautiful strapless lace dress trailing behind her in the sand as her and Tyler snuggled, slow danced, & ran through the cold sand. {{“I could die right now, Clem. I'm just... happy. I've never felt that before. I'm just exactly where I want to be.” - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind}} I made an artificial bouquet for Lexi to hold in some of the photos. It consisted of dried Eucalyptus (that smelled amazing), Lambs Ear, Spray Roses, and berries. It provided the perfect neutral/warm tones to contrast the dreary landscape.

We made our way down the shoreline, photographing & filming this fun little Saturday afternoon adventure. The sun was starting to go down, so we jumped in the car and drove along the peninsula in search of a bridge lit with romantic string lights…right where Tyler proposed to Lexi the winter before. We drove for a while, but unfortunately we couldn’t find it. I noticed a pond while driving and asked to swing by there for a few photos before we wrapped up the shoot. The water was so smooth that it just looked like a sheet of glass reflecting the bare trees and grey sky. We photographed at that location for ten minutes or so, and then parted ways. The whole afternoon was so magical and made our creative-hearts sing. {{“I loved you on this day. I love this memory.” -Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.}}"
