This was such a fun shoot that I had the pleasure of being a part of. It was such an honor to see our shoot recently featured on Magnolia Rouge as well! Thank you Kate! Check out that feature here. When Shauna from J29 Events mentioned that she wanted to do an elegant safari shoot at Wildlife Safari I was beyond excited. Wildlife Safari is in Winston, Oregon and is one of the largest breeders of Cheetahs in the world. They have a wonderful program that utilizes their ambassador cheetahs (Khayam and Machumba) to educate and bring awareness to the public about their species. Cheetahs are now the most endangered of all of the large cats in Africa. Their program also serves as a sanctuary for many other wonderful wild animals. The reason they agreed to the shoot is because Wildlife Safari actually has a wedding
venue that you can use to get married at. This was such a unique experience working with the animals and the staff at Wildlife Safari. It was very moving to hear about their programs and the animals. All of the wedding and events money goes to support all of their animals and their educational programs! Not only was the venue amazing and the animals, the team who helped to collaborate with their many different talents and passion was amazing. I loved the elegant details with the gold and bright vivid floral that decorated the table against the beautiful and natural setting.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this inspiration shoot, it was so unique and fun to be a part of it all!
