One of my all time favorite movies is Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. It is cinematically stunning. She wonderfully combines ultra feminine beauty with raw edge. I have been wanting to do a shoot loosely inspired by the film for some time, and here is my stab at it. (I say loosely because I am more than aware how much expertise and time it takes to create a detailed masterpiece such as her rendition!) However, I just love everything about this look and had to make it happen.
This was the first shoot I designed and styled myself. From flowers, to rentals, to the dress, and graphics. I must say it got me itching to work on so many more! It gave me confidence to work alongside brides and clients in the future in helping their vision come to life, which I am truly passionate about!
Hope you enjoy these lovely images by Poiema Photography!
Featured in this shoot are two Claire Pettibone dresses because come on, just look at the gorgeous appliques on the back! They were perfectly paired with time period furniture and detail pieces are from Vickie with My Lovely Events. It was such a pleasure to work with Vickie in choosing what elements I wanted to incorporate. She has a great collection and a keen eye for styling. Everyone else with such a pleasure to work with, I am constantly inspired by these gals!
