Sometimes the stars align and truly amazing things happen, like this styled shoot.
My friend Marie of Marie Nicole Weddings asked if I would like to be part of a styled shoot she was cooking up with Sarandipity Florals, ECP Events and Grant Station. The idea was a moody rendition of Beauty and The Beast and Photography by V would be taking stills. I was like, “um. YES.”
When I arrived at Grant Station, I honestly couldn’t even speak words. My mouth and brain weren’t working from the sheer epic-ness of everything before me. Awesome venue, check. Stunning design, check. Favorite team of artists, check, perfect models, check. How did I get so lucky?
We were all so giddy while putting everything together and shooting the “story” was a dream come true. I actually did a live video to explain how excited I was and how weird I look to those who don’t understand my way of expressing overwhelming joy.
Needless to say, the post-production of the video had me stretching my creative muscles and I was able to do some things I’ve been wanting to try for a while (Yes, that IS my voice narrating the video… :* …)
So please, watch and enjoy this little fairytale reimagined from the minds of some incredible artists:
