Elizabeth And Stephen's Day After Session

If you find yourself stressed by the day-of wedding schedule, or perhaps you felt foggy or a bit under the weather ... worry not. You can document that dreamy and giddy look in a day after session with your love.
Unfortunately Elizabeth was under the weather on her wedding day, so she booked the ever so talented Gemmer Photography to capture a unique day after session for her and her husband Stephen. Read on for some insider advice on having a day after session and of course see so so so many more photos in the full gallery.

Elizabeth And Stephen's Day After Session

From Gemmer Photography:

We wanted to make this session really relevant. Since the bride and groom are both musicians, and the bride had told me that she’d always dreamed of doing a photoshoot with a piano, I started searching around Portland to see if  Icould make her dream come true!

Enter: {martha, dear} from, immortal piano company! ah! She is a true wonder! A soulful woman, who treats her {lovely} vintage pianos with such care as if to a child! one day, i thought, ‘I’ll just go into this shoppe, and ask them if there is any way that this idea could ever become a reality. i’ll never know if i don’t ask’. so, i walked into her shoppe on a warm, sunny day on a whim. doing things on a {whim} always brings about the most lovely little surprises into my life. noted: i should do this more often. martha was simply divine! she understood my vision immediately, and knew that the poor sweet piano she had been working on that was sadly beyond repair would be a perfect fit! it was like entrusting something she loved & spent time trying to heal…to a home where she knew its’ last days would be purposeful…that would immortalize its’ {lovely} craftmanship in a tangible, lasting way. okay. a bit dramatic, i know. but, truly….that is {exactly} what it felt like. martha was so touched by this session & the thought of this piano having a home & artistic purpose, that she offered to move it to our home…to await the move to the photoshoot location! {martha-we love love love you!}

From Gemmer Photography on feeling under the weather on your wedding day,

first of all, when you’re feeling under the weather on your wedding day, you can imagine that some of that dream of being exactly how you are…how you’ve always been, but simply radiant and shining…{to just yourself} might seem a bit dim in comparison to feeling your best. we wanted to make sure that elizabeth felt most herself…most radiant, and simply stunning! i can honestly say that i was breath-taken. kellen eason created this gloriously full & rich hairstyle…accentuating elizabeth’s fiery red hair, and yet making her look other-worldly…dreamy & soft! {ah} i couldn’t get over it!! the guys from the moving company were lounging outside, waiting on us to pack up and drive to the location of this photoshoot, and seriously….when elizabeth walked down our steps….those men were at attention, and i think i can say that they thought she was {glowing}. and…she was. our {favorite} makeup artist {nadia kingston} of {nadia artistry} was simply inspirational in her art! elizabeth’s makeup turned out both soft & dramatic…with the feeling of being from another time…{gasps} seriously, i was just so impressed! and, what they did….made this sweet bride feel like the most {lovely} woman in the world!
