Behind the Scenes with a Florist, Foraged Floral

I traveled to a farm in Wisconsin to do some head shots about 1.5 years ago with my good friend, and photographer - Kate Weinstein, and this is the outcome. A little snow (it was 14 degrees!), lots of laughter, and even a bouquet tutorial feature on Style Me Pretty. It was a super fun day playing around with flowers!

These photos are some of my favorites. I've never been happy with any photo taken of myself, until these! Kate really knocked it out of the park and made my awkwardness into something I will cherish forever. I felt like I was a total spaz the entire shoot, too! I don't know how you did it, Kate.

Thanks to SMP for the feature and to Kate for dealing with the cold with me on this crazy cold November day!

Film & Flora Workshop - Round 3 - Santa Barbara, CA

Last May I attended a lovely workshop hosted by Tinge Floral and Mike Radford Photography. I've blogged about it several times before, but I was lucky enough to work with  more than one photographer while I was there, hence the large amount of amazing photographs I want to share!

I had a wonderful time and still cannot get enough of the bouquet I crafted while I was in Santa Barbara. This will always be one of my favorites, the colors are so subtle, but still have a beautiful and romantic pop.

These photographs were also featured on Wedding Sparrow. Take a look to see more of Steve's work!

Modern Beach Bridal Inspiration with Blue and Peach Wedding Flowers

When Grace, of Lee-Lim, asked me to be a part of her unique look book shoot she had been dreaming of, I couldn't say no! Have you seen Grace's gowns? They are beyond incredible and beautifully crafted. If you are in bride in need of a gown, contact her immediately! 

The shoot took place on the shores of Lake Michigan on an extremely hot summer day. The day included a lot of running in the sand (what a work out!) and quick changes for our female model. I'm not exactly sure how many gowns we used that day, but you will see in the photos below that she made a lot of changes. The gowns range from short, cocktail length, to long and lacy.

For the flowers, I wanted to play off the location - soft sandy colors with a hint of blue-ish / purple for the ombre sky. I included flowers like anemones, garden roses, blackberry branches, artichokes and more. I really liked how the bouquet and centerpiece turned out!

We were also lucky enough to have this shoot featured on Grey Likes Weddings a couple months back. If you missed it, definitely take a look!

**Fun fact (believe it or not!) -- Grace's husband stood behind that awesome wallpaper backdrop the entire time. What a trooper!
