“This shoot was inspired by the intimate moments of two lovers alone in the woods. The lush greenery of the landscape balanced the various textures of the tablescape. The silk scarves were draped over the trees adding to the sense of intimacy and romance in the forest. Oriental rugs layered with furs and floral prints played up the hunter gatherer theme that inspired us as well. The table was set for two with dozens of candles and glass vases adorned with loose wildflowers giving an added feel of bohemian romance. The florals were moody, organic, and romantic with deep reds, romantic pinks and vibrant magentas. This palette stood in stark contrast to the lush summer landscape, making for enviable blooms with big impact. Loose buds floated in basins filled with water from the river. The romantic shades were also seen in the bride’s berry lip color. A decadent chocolate cake gave the setting a luxe feel that paired perfectly with the glamour of the sequin dress providing a beautiful balance between natural beauty and glamorous fashion. It perfectly captured the purest moments of summer…The fleeting moments just as the sun is setting or the first moments of morning when the grass is still covered in dew. Intimate and passionate, it captured the bohemian romance of lovers in the woods. This shoot leaves me longing for more dreamlike love-lust and the vibrant burning colors of summer.”
