I met Maya Myers after we both worked on the Bella Victorian Wedding (photos from Stacey Lynn Design's blog), who then turned into not just an industry acquaintance, but a good friend too. Besides being fun and full of energy, she's a damn good photographer. This is a shout-out to her great work, and I truly appreciate her taking time out of her hectic schedule to photograph the Valentine's promotion below.
Stacey Kottle and her new fiance were the models. Ya can't fake that love! Well you can, if it involves flowers and jewelry.
I'm pretty sure we still have about 1000 postcards left. Is it tacky to cross out 2012 and put 2013 next year? Probably.
I found this picture on my cell, and was like, What the hell is this from?! Then I realized it was the bouquet. I'm making something similar for one of my lovely bride's Jennie B. this spring. You really can't go wrong with jewel tones. I used anenomes, spray roses, and dahlias. I wanted to make something easy to replicate, without using big blooms. The challenge was the girth of the stems. The cuff was a bit too big to wrap around for the shoot. Luckily it's bendable, so we stuck a few corsage pins in it on the back to tighten it. I like the idea of using a lot of small buds instead of traditional larger ones.
During the shoot, we ordered Pitfire Pizza. Gratuitous food shot. And, they have gluten-free crust- hell, yes. This is probably my most favorite pizza ever. It has burrata- enough said. With citrus arugula, pine nuts, and grilled onions.
How captivating is this wedding photo? So unlike anything I've seen. Three moments- one photo. Priceless. Maya could be an Amex commercial it turns out.
