A Classic California Styled Shoot

What was the inspiration behind this styled shoot?

The inspiration behind this styled shoot is highlighting the classic hotel wedding for a high-end/black-tie, sophisticated LGBTQAI+ couple. And what better place than the historic and CLASSIC Claremont Hotel, in Berkeley!

What are some of the key elements in this shoot?

I wanted to tie in the modern elements to speak to the modern couple as well, notice not “Trendy” but classic elements. Such as a hand painted cake, glassybaby votives, beautiful high overflowing centerpiece and velvet linen!! Other key elements include the “modern” day of wedding stationary such as programs, menus, place cards and the acrylic welcome sign!

Is there an overall theme and/or color palette in this shoot?

The color story for the shoot was inspired by the carpet in the ballroom (lol). The color story was Gray (base), Ivory, Greenery, Dusty Rose, Copper/Gold (accents). I wanted everything to flow from the carpet to the chandeliers hanging from the high ceilings!

Why did you choose to use an LGBTQAI+ couple for the shoot? What significance did it have?

I selected to use one of my couples whose wedding that I am planning, because I want real love represented. Not models, when you do that the chemistry is not there, and that is extra important to me when trying to inspire others to tell their love story. It’s true that a picture is worth a thousand words!

Happy Holidays!
We Are On Winter Break

Hello, hello! 

If you are anything like me, 2019 has been a trying year - personally and professionally I have grown and struggled a lot, but I feel good about 2020. I have a tradition of taking the last two weeks of the year off - I try to unplug and hunker down with loved ones and this year, I am especially excited about this break.

I hope that your holiday season is peaceful, whatever you do and whoever you are with. 

Going into 2020, I am grateful for this community of strong, resilient people who love hard and support each other just as hard. 

Cheers to what's coming! 

Kate

This ain't the honeymoon

Passed the infatuation phase

Right in the thick of love"

What was the inspiration behind this styled shoot?

This is a photo shoot that showcases new trends and design elements for couples planning their weddings. We tried to get away of the typical rural weddings that have been so trendy in the recent years, we wanted a rural environment known in the internal areas of Spain, but with the unique details that make it feel extra romantic.

What are some key elements in this shoot?

We love outdoor weddings and the beautiful Spanish weather, so the sunset was very important. As well, the fun, feminine touches and joy that the couple exudes were an essential part of this shoot - we wanted to make it very romantic, sweet, like a fairytale by using tones of rose and gold.

Is there an overall theme and/or color palette in this shoot?

The sunset theme with gold rose was the key palette of this shoot.

Why did you choose to use an LGBTQAI + couple for the shoot?

We wanted to make something different, in a special place and to share that project. From the very begin we thought of a female couple for this shoot. When the team started putting it all together, the team was excited about it and, ultimately, the results are even better than we could have imagined.

Have you worked with LGBTQAI+ couples prior to this shot? Did you lear anything new from working with a queer couple?

Yes, we have worked with LGBTQAI+ couples in real weddings. For us, there is no difference between organizing a LGBTQAI+ wedding and a heterosexual wedding. For the team was the first shooting with inspiration with a couple of women and we enjoyed so much, it was very special.
