It was probably the week before Christmas when I got her message. My lovely model friend, Brianna Olenslager, contacted me about a short notice photo-shoot. The only catch about this shoot… it was going to be the day after Christmas! The wonderful Colleen Riley (our photographer behind the shoot) supplied the gorgeous Ralph Lauren dress, sheer with crystal accents and a super vintage feel.
Knowing that this dress was such a romantic look, on a slightly dreary day, shooting in the marsh, we instantly started thinking up bouquet designs. There were three looks for the flowers, the first one was all fresh flowers, garden roses, cumquats, and tiny orchids. The second bouquet we used was a paper flower and antique broach look. The third and final bouquet, was my personal favorite…we mixed cotton and succulents together for a very twiggy look with a matching head piece!
All in all, the day was so much fun! It was absolutely freezing and Brianna was such a trooper (still working the camera). I can’t wait to share Colleen’s photos with you when they are ready, but until then…here are some of my snapshots from our little play day.
