I wanted to do a post about a shoot put together early last year with some amazing local talent.
Not withstanding, this shoot had its issues to ( haha) yet again mother nature let us down keeping our creative shots to the lodge in the conservatory with a grand ol’ fireplace.
The florist was a total no show due to getting lost, so I rustled up a bouquet out of some greenery and a single hydrangea head Andrea bought down from the main house, our photographer Christie nearly got lost because Google sucks at directions ( mind you i’m not much better 😀 )
Cut a long story short from bad there always comes good I of all people have learnt this many times over the past years!
Before this shoot I was never a huge fan of the editorial look in images, I felt like they were disconnected and didn’t actually speck to the masses, people generally want to see something real, even if it is a scene that has been set I guess its why the more traditional fashion and bridal magazines don’t hold a huge place in peoples hearts anymore, it could just be me I dano, with social media being a huge part of our lives now its increasingly hard to even know the difference anymore , I personally like to feel the chemistry in the images, but Christie has swayed me to take a likeing to this style of results with the way the images came together, there was a sense of realness among this editorial style making the results more relatable.
This location gave me a back drop that spoke to my soul, its remote location, the wood work, the fire place, it holds a sense of relaxation and freedom and I wanted to focus on feature I knew the owners loved…. That fire place!
