For this shoot/collection I wanted to work with new and old people, such as Aileen Devlin. Aileen and I have worked together for two shoots (Vespa and Valkyrie) and our chemistry is great. I never really need to direct or tell Aileen how to capture my jewelry, she just gets it. As for the rest of the team, I couldn't have found more talented individuals.
Amanda Adkins, owner of The Lucky Owl Shop, creates really beautiful flower bouquets, arrangements and flower crowns. So I knew Amanda would need to be a part of the shoot, then came on Meagan Wilson a freelance makeup artist. Lastly, I was able to grab two gorgeous dresses from my girl Paula Chrismon's shop, The Closet Consignment Boutique as well as blouses from Catalog Connection both located in Uptown Greenville.
The day was beautiful and breezy and the setting was perfect - a cemetery! When I told some friends they were a bit confused but to me, it works so well, marriage is meant to last until ultimately you pass into the next life so why not shoot the collection where others have gone to depart but are buried next to their spouses and loved ones?
