Ever since I saw the film Snow White and the Huntsman in theaters over the summer (5 times eek!!) I knew I HAD to do a styled shoot. So not only did my creative team and I concoct a shoot featuring the queen, but we did one with Snow White too! We are crazy. We planned two big shoots, one the day after the other. A Snow White filled weekend – the best kind. I really think the photos speak for themselves but here are some fun facts about how we created this fantasy world.
A lot of the details are handmade. When I say a lot, I mean pretty much everything. Even the black dress!! Can you believe Kelly of Le Lapin de Marriage handmade that gown? Ridiculous. It’s a dream gown! Not to mention she put together the whole table spread. Emily Zynch of WhichGoose custommade the black feather and gemstone crown that our queen wore. She is crazy amazing talented! We spray painted goblets and martini glasses and our florist splashed our table full of fruits that only a dark queen would approve of. Notice there is not an apple in site. I didn’t want to follow the story spot on. I think pomegranates are darker and more mysterious- way more appropriate for the queen. And the floral centerpiece – gasp!! It’s like the queen’s crown from the film sprung up in a mystical flower arrangement with hints of purple and red. If that’s not royalty I don’t know what is. And don’t forgot the furry ball of joy that is Kelly’s little bunny. The PERFECT addition to our decorations.
This was EPIC. And it was the shoot that landed right smack dab on my birthday. I couldn’t have planned a better way to spend turning 22 than with a million creative minds recreating my absolute favorite film. Enjoy
A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in the creation of this project. It obviously would not have happened without all of your beautiful ideas and support. I am so fortunate to have met and made lasting relationships with each and every one of you and it is amazing to be in the same company with so many talented individuals.
