I have a ton of blogging to catch up on and usually I do them in chronological order as I shoot them but this one is just too good not to share. My good friend and fellow photographer, Zoya Dawn and I have done a couple shoots together in the past. Our first was in January at Beluga point, see here and right before I moved we did another at the Butte in the Matsu Valley, see here. We always have such a fun time shooting together, it's more like a couples on a date and we get to tag along and play paparazzi (sometimes creeper ha!) When Zoya and I started planning this in February, we decided on a theme and Zoya planned and styled this whole thing! It turned out so amazing and she definitely has a gift for details and an eye for style. We collaborated with our friend and amazing photographer/videographer Megan Rai Freeman and the rest is pure magic! Seriously we found our selves aweing and oohing the whole time. I will not forget this day.
Treking through the Alaskan wilderness with out stuff, I made sure to carry the 15 tier cookie cake made by Cakes by Velvet, so that if we stumbled upon a grizzly bear, I could chuck it at it and make a run for it. Haha! Models Valerie and Elijah were such sports as we shot in a mosquito invested field and dealt with our rowdy characters. Blasting Nicki Minaj and shots of Pendleton certainly didn't helo!
Flowers are by Paper Peony and Elijah wore a burgundy suit from Asos and Valerie wore a stunning beaded dress by Needle and Thread London. Zoya made the macramé on a copper stand!I hope you enjoy and take in this pure magic. So much thanks to Zoya for putting this all together and blowing us all away, and Megan for the amazing video footage. Many thanks to all the vendors and models for their time and talent.
