Good photos are supposed to make you feel like they were easy to take. Nothing should feel forced or overly edited to create the finished product. But the truth is that behind the scenes of any good photo, there's a team of people who are working very hard to make it look that easy.
Yesterday I shared photos from a romantic styled shoot that featured pink champagne, diamonds, candy, roses, and three beautiful models in amazing wedding gowns. Today I'm sharing the behind the scenes photos from that shoot, showcasing a few of my talented friends in the industry. Enjoy!
This shot of Kirsty from Topknot adjusting Amelia's hair is probably my favourite.
We always make a pile of pretty details that will be used in the shoot. It helps keep everything moving quickly between models and outfits.
The floral wall installation was a massive piece that required some serious muscle to move it around the shop. Those photos from yesterday's post where the model was laying down on the bed of roses -- this is a shot of the crew turning the wall on its side in preparation for that shot.
The girl dressed in all black is Brittany West from GLOSS Events & Decor. She's my soul sister and everytime we get together, we realize we are more and more alike.

Klava Z is a perfectionist in the best way possible. Her makeup requires practically zero editing.
This is why we do a practise shot for throwing rose petals...
The boomerang crew. Three phones going at once to document all of the behind the scenes moments from the shoot on Instagram :)
Personal snacking corner between sets:
The floor was soaked from this wall. No big deal, especially since there weren't expensive wedding gowns right next to it... OH WAIT.
Lifting Jodie onto the floral wall setup.
I think I made her laugh when I said she kindof looked like a really pretty dead body getting a makeup application. I made sure to say "no offence" before it, soooo I think I'm good.
Can you tell we are about to wrap up the shoot?
Let the record show this photo was not my idea, and I am not to be blamed for it ;)
I hope you guys enjoy seeing a little bit of the behind the scenes for a shoot like this! To head back into the archives of my blog and see every styled shoot from the last few years, check out this link. CHEERS to the weekend!
