I have been honoured to have been featured in Whim Magazine for the February issue and excited to see my photography on the front cover of the issue. I was approached by the lovely Nicole Johnson who is the model for this shoot, she came to me with the news that Whim was looking for Autumn submissions. I always wanted to do an Autumn theme as most of my shoots has been spring or summer so it was time for a new change. I do love the reds, oranges and yellows for the season.
I have launched a new package called ‘Styled Love Shoots’ which is mostly engagement photoshoots where I style the shoot with a theme and put props plus personally get the flowers and arrange them for the shoot. As Nicole came to me, a rush of ideas came to my mind and really wanted to style this shoot. It would be my very first styling shoot, Nicole wanted it to be simple and I think simple was best as I wanted her flower crowns to stand out and not get lost in the style shoot.
The day of the shoot was one of the most humid and hottest day ever. I was really melting just by stepping outside of my house but we still powered on. I was so glad to have done this later in the afternoon to get that amazing golden glow from the sun, it just added a new touch and warmth to this shoot which is what I thought captures what Autumn is all about.
This shoot allowed me to understand the styling elements and to challenge myself. I love styling and I even have fallen in love with flowers, I so enjoyed arranging them! All the props can be hired if you are interested, just email us for more details.
