Earlier in this year Alexandra and I decided to collaborate on a fun and simple shoot with some leftover flowers I had. It was a really wonderful Sunday! We had so much fun playing with flowers and just letting our creativity flow, something I don't always get to do! :)
I traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this year and collaborated with the talented team listed below on a modern take on a desert wedding. We wanted to keep everything clean and simple, with the muted colored flowers as a statement piece.
This bouquet was a favorite of mine! The Japanese ranunculus were obviously the focal point, but there were some other spring favorites tucked in there too - hellebores, lilac, and of course some foraged greens and textures from around the desert. February temperatures in Nevada are really wonderful, the light is really magical too. I hope to travel back soon!

This blog post has been a long time coming. I think this session actually took place around this time last year?! Crazy how fast time flies. My friend Lexia Frank is such a talented film photographer and is putting together a book for other photographers, or just anyone who wants to learn more about film photography. She needed a few subjects to photograph for a few of her lessons, which is where I came in. :) I love all of the different levels of lighting she used in these photos. So interesting and unique! Thanks for including me Lexia, I love your work!
Earlier this year I collaborated on a wedding inspiration shoot with some of the best vendors in Portland, OR! Spring is one of the best times of the year for beautiful flowers, so I went all out with shades of white, blush, purple and green flowers. Lots of amazing ranunculus, hellebores, spirea and tweedia too!

This winter was pretty tough to get through in Portland. We had so much rain and we went months and months with very few, if any sunny days! If there is anything good about an Oregon winter, it's this. How beautiful are these birch trees?
Jenni was dreaming up a winter bouquet for this shoot, and that's exactly what I created! Lots of greenery and twiggy details, with pops of winter white flowers such as lisanthus and spider mums. I even include some dried lunaria too! It was nice to play with some winter flowers and textures that I don't get to use often.
Thank you to Trendy Bride Magazine for featuring our work! It's always a treat to have our designs published. :)
