Every year I try and team up with some very talented people and photograph a styled shoot of some kind (just for fun). I love working with new people and seeing their talents. It always seems to make me feel excited for the upcoming wedding season and helps me know who I can refer to my brides. This group of people I worked with were incredible, and I like to think I made a few new friends as well.
You can never, even go wrong with having Yessie on your side for hair and makeup. That girl is so dang talented!
Gina has become a good friend over the last few styled shoots we have done and I love, love, love working with her! She always blows me away and goes above and beyond with her florals.
I have been to Paris and traveled all over… I have never tasted a better macaron than Tanya’s! I am obsessed! This girl is crazy talented!
I was privileged to find a wedding coordinator to piece this all together and really design what I was envisioning. Julia and I both sat down and went over some of our visions and she took off and made it all happen and more. She was so well organized and really made everything run smoothly, even thought this wasn’t a real wedding. I truly hope to work with her again! She gathered up some other vendors that made this all come together, like Vintage Ambiance, Ink Allure, The Dress Theory and Grand Events Rentals.
And last, we couldn’t have done it without an incredibly gorgeous venue! The Fremont Foundry. Oh my goodness, it was so beautiful and unique. I loved adding the elegant class to the urban and industrial type surroundings.
It started out with a dress. This dress inspired this whole thing. Jenny Packham is one of my favorite dress designers. I knew it would go great with the dark, rich colors we had planned. I had seen so many bright colors being featured and used in weddings, but not a lot of rich dark hues. I wanted to do something different. I absolutely love how this shoot turned out. It couldn’t have gone any better!
Thank you Giselle for modeling for us!
