As we all anxiously await spring, what better time to share a beautiful March collaboration shoot filled with beautiful Spring elements?! I’m excited for you to see these images of our editorial featuring Rose Quartz and Serenity, the Pantone colors of 2016.
Alex Thornton reached out to me in January 2016 about collaborating on a styled shoot in early spring, I had no idea how this project would lead to such a sweet friendship and incredible imagery. Not only are flowers BEAUTIFUL in March, but we also had the time and energy to collaborate and plan before our crazy wedding seasons picked up. You’re going to see a lot of Alex’s work here and on my website in the blog posts to come. I hope you will follow, encourage and reach out to her! She is a GEM.
Rose Quartz and Serenity – our design inspiration
Alex had several elements decided upon but needed assistance with choosing color. Creating mood boards for my clients is one of my most favorite tasks in the design process. I couldn’t wait to take Alex’s soft film style and attach color and details to it. As we plowed headfirst into 2016, we decided to embrace the Pantone colors for the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. The mood board was incredible and the bouquet quickly became one of my favorite of all time. (Ignore my old logo!)
I was so proud of how this candelabra turned out! Considering blogging a ‘how-to’ type post to share how this was created…
This bouquet was a bit wild for my taste at the time. I worried the branches might be ‘too much’ or that it would look incredibly messy on film. I cried when I saw these images and could not have asked for a more perfect combination of soft, feminine and wild in a single frame.
