Magical Harry Potter Styled Shoot at Malibou Lake Lodge

October 31, 2018


From the Photographer: 


This styled shoot was a collaboration between a bunch of Harry Potter loving vendors and one very dedicated coordinator who hadn't read a single book or seen the movies.  The woodland colors and motifs were inspired by the Marauders Era of Harry's father James Potter and his best friends growing up in the 70s in the UK.  We wanted to hint at subtle homages to this fandom rather than an outright theme.  We used antlers to represent James, as his nickname is Prongs, hand carved wands as table settings, Hogwarts letters around the fire, antique furniture, and even an incredible rustic spread of food to represent the Hogwarts feast.  

The stunning lace dress had a vintage feel that we though looked perfect on our witch bride, and the jewel toned burgundy suit would be any dapper wizard's dream.  

Though this late October day was a sunny 105 degrees, we used shade and lighting to achieve the cool overcast atmosphere that reminded us of London.  

Our incredible stylist was cutting our groom's hair on site, giving him a stylish do, and once we placed the round iconic glasses on his nose, we told him he wasn't allowed to take them off.  Our bride looked perfect with forest green eye shadow and as stunning braided updo, and together the couple looked the very picture of a stylish wizard family.
