Behind the Styled Shoot
For this styled shoot, I wanted to create an ethereal fairytale that will hopefully be an inspiration to all the whimsical brides in the West Coast because we really do live in the most beautiful place in the world!
I had chosen soft pastel colors for the flowers and details to complement the majestic fields of lavender at the Tuscan Farm Gardens in Abbotsford. The dress from LuxxNova Bridal was not a traditional white but a combination of soft grey, lavender, and white tulle layers. A beautiful beaded white butterfly at the front of the dress ties into the other butterflies scattered throughout the photoshoot. I wanted to capture heart fluttering moments with lots of movement and elegant posing. Da Fiori Design did a magnificent job of creating just the right floral bouquets and centerpieces to bring even more magic to the location and Jenny from Mink Makeup and Hair knew just the right touches, down to the perfect shade of lipstick to complement the bridal bouquet. Our model, Katerina, was perfection with her pale complexion, whimsically beautiful features, and soft elegant movements down to her pinkies and toes.
