The idea of a modern, more “urban” styled shoot had been kicking around in my brain for about a year. During the slow winter I worked on a Pinterest board with darker colors, moody clean lines meets Texas kistchy, but still natural and organic. On a humid, grey Friday morning we loaded up the car and headed to Peached Social House for our styled shoot.
Since a few issues came up at the last minute (as they always do) I really tried to stick to my vision board and made decisions that I would be happy with in the long run. I wanted a leather moto jacket over a soft dress with a textural ponytail, dark teal or dark grey dinnerware, modern clean lines and a unique cake. Melody’s Joy delivered a fantastic, unique modern cake that really was special for our shoot. I LOVE the crazy wild florals from Visual Lyrics and the rentals & goodies from Birch & Brass.
Of course I couldn’t have done anything like this on my own and working with my gal Mandy at Modern Whimsy to really pull this shoot off right before SXSW was so much fun. Check out the Behind the Scenes footage on Youtube shot by Instant Crush Productions.
