Rockledge Gardens Mini Styled Shoot
Styling a shoot is my absolute favorite thing to do, so I do one any chance I get 😀 This one stands out to me because I allowed myself to experiment. The only people at the shoot were me and model Danae Kateb so I was extra relaxed and even more in my element! What came out of this session taught me more about myself an my style than anything else!! And that little bit of self teaching is exactly why I do these, to grow, to evolve, as an artist. Thank you Danae for playing with me!!!
First and foremost, I have to thank my wonderful friend and fellow wedding professional, Julie Miner of Julie Miner Events for putting together this bouquet. I gave her absolutely no inspiration, just that we were shooting against a garden wall and what she came up with is nothing short of spectacular!
I designed the invitation suite and menus around this watercolor fabric I found at a local craft store. Customizable suites of all HLP digitals are available in the HLP etsy shop! The dress is pieced together with items I found in thrift stores. I created the dress over time in my studio on a mannequin, I love how it looks on Danae’s petite frame! Lastly, I loved playing with Danae’s gorgeous blond hair. I did three quick and easy hairstyles in between snapping pics and consuming donuts. There were a dozen donuts… that donut cake is three donuts tall.
