it is inspiring to team up with other local businesses and artists for styled shoots. i love the energy and excitement when working so closely together all with the same common end goal. from the amazing location, to the incredible styling, the absolutely gorgeous flower designs and the best cupcakes and treats around this vintage party theme was a lot of fun to photograph. i shot it all on medium format fuji film to keep with the old vintage feel to the images.

here are some words from stylist Alexandra with Pink & Honey on her inspiration for the shoot:

inspired by parties of old, we collaborated to create a beautiful vintage holiday celebration. trimming the tree with fresh garden roses, enjoying a scotch, sipping champagne, eating sweet festive treats. we set out to capture a glamorous gathering of old world hospitality. moved by a less suspecting holiday color, pink was carried throughout each visual element for an interesting, modern twist. mixed with unique hair and makeup choices, we wanted to celebrate vintage inspired looks but with a wearable approach.

hope you all have wonderful Christmas.
