Summer in a Studio

August 16, 2018

Minneapolis got absolutely dumped with a last minute snow storm, a few weeks before we left the country. It was the middle of Spring and we got a serious 2 ft of snow. This shoot was originally planned for outside. We had expected cherry blossoms and all the Spring goodness, and yet we got -10 degrees. In the end, the blank canvas of Studio Apparatus was perfect. Perfect enough to see this beauty of a shoot accepted by Fine Art Queen Kate of Magnolia Rouge.

The colours of this shoot make it what it is. Orange, yellow and pink is not a “go to” colour palette for brides, but this may just see them change their mind. I always love flowers to do the talking – and in this case they certainly do. My styling always accents flowers – not just because I am a florist – but because of the lush, luxe feel they bring to a wedding day. This is one of the reasons I love light photography – because the flowers are fully visual and the effort put into designing them isn’t lost in moody edits. I am so thankful to have worked with Abbie of Abigail Berge Photography on this shoot. What a pick, if I do say so myself. This was the biggest shoot Abbie had done, and I honestly felt my jaw drop as I received back the photos. You will see why, below. A few of these vendors I had worked with before. But this was my second style shoot, and with not much of a portfolio, I was super glad to have had them accept my offer. The art we created will always be one of my favourites.
