We are very in love with the seductive nature of this session, leaving just enough to the imagination, seeing a beautiful woman flaunt her femininity fearlessly. It offers a glimpse into her private life, yet it makes her appear stronger and more serene. We asked the creatives behind this boudoir shoot for their creative process and they gave us some wonderful gems.
On the inspiration behind the shoot:
When we spotted the old box spring among the antiques in the mill, we knew it was the perfect compliment to our larger idea. When adorned with ivy, it encompassed both the boudoir and bridal feel to our shoot. It reminded us of the Romeo and Juliet era; young love, vintage time, raw beauty.
Katie's words on styling & creating floral designs:
With keeping in mind the decor and ambiance of the setting, I chose flowers that were antique looking. I used a large variety of roses, with the main focus and inspiration coming from the koko loko roses (in taupe). The bride’s bouquet also included caramel antique roses, cappuccino roses, wild looking roses, blush ranunculus, chocolate cosmos, tree peonies and hellebore. For greens, I used lots of herbs (sage, mint, and oregano) and foraged greens from my neighborhood! I am incredibly passionate about learning and understanding the vision behind an event or a shoot, and bringing a piece of that to life through floral design. I carefully choose colors, textures, and specific blooms that best represent the overall look, feel, and personality of the event.
Tara’s words on styling:
Beauty cannot be defined simply. I love finding it in unexpected places. It’s that initial inspiration that drives my greater purpose.
