Although I have my own photography style, when I work with brands I aim for what's best for their aesthetic. 1900 Inn on Montford wanted photos that showed off their guest rooms that weren't too dark, a problem they've had in the past. I love a moody image but I agree that we want the the rooms in the B&B to feel light, comfortable and welcoming. I made sure to keep the look as natural as possible while brightening up the space even if though was rainy on the shoot day - sometimes you have to fake the beautiful sunlight!
Another request was to make the colors robust. I was happy to make the colors pop for their liking! The greenery outdoors was beautiful in June when we shot and I definitely wanted to highlight that. Check out their gorgeous garden below!
The first image from this post is possibly my favorite of the collection, just a simple shot of their swinging bench on the front porch.
It epitomizes how I see a Bed & Breakfast and gives me all the feelings of booking a summer getaway in the mountains. Comfort, nature and sweet details like the wind chimes and planter. What draws you in to the B&B experience?
