When I saw this flower gown at Sew Now Studio, I knew it would be perfect for a flower crown and wide open fields. I think she looks every bit as Fairy Princess as she does Bride. You wouldn’t know it from the images, but it was HOT and the light was HARSH. Thanks to my impromptu assistants, Heather and Jeanette, for being human light stands to protect my gear from toppling in the wind.
This shoot was made possible by:
Gown: Sew Now Studio
Hair & Makeup: Chandra at Elements Salon
These images started with a simple dress I found at Sew Now Studio. If you ever need a dress, or alterations, make sure to visit the fabulous ladies at Sew Now Studio in Shelton, WA. The ostrich feathers were also provided by Sew Now.
Chandra, from Elements Salon, and I had a a blast with this shoot. I love collaborating with creative people. It not only makes the job a ton of fun, but it encourages my brain to stretch out of its comfort zone and create looks I may not have discovered on my own.
The toughest part of preparing for this particular look was finding the right location. I originally wanted an industrial feel, but wasn’t having much luck finding the right place. I drove around town with an open mind (and eye) and then this wall magically appeared. I say magically, because I have driven by that particular wall thousands of times and never considered photographing it. I absolutely love how perfectly the location complimented the style of the shoot. It looks like it could be New York, or London in the 60’s, but it’s right here in lil ol’ Shelton, WA!
