We’ve been super busy these past few weeks prepping for our Fall 2014 Lookbook shoot and I can’t believe its already over! Sunday was a full day of hair, make up, and styling to get the right looks for each photo. We wanted to share a little peek of what it takes to get these amazing shots that you see us use on our website and more. Weeks before the shoot we began searching for inspiration online and in magazines of what kind of shots we wanted and how we wanted to style the hair, make up and clothes. You can check out our Inspiration Board on our Pinterest page to see the photos that influenced our looks. We knew we wanted to go in a different direction than we have normally done for our lookbooks, something more edgy, sleek, and dark. For the makeup we chose to go for a more dramatic look with darker shadows, lots of lashes, and berry stained lips. We kept the hair sleek and straight mostly with an edgier vibe. Since it is Fall we had a lot of darker colors to work with in the clothing so it was perfect to achieve the look we were going for. We shot at the beautiful Moore Farms Botanical Gardens located right here in Lake City. This is the third time we have shot here, and it never disappoints. The gardens literally change on a weekly basis so there is always a new gorgeous backdrop.
Our amazing makeup artist Cory King captured our vision with smokey eyes, lots of liner and lashes and darker lips. One of our models, Erin McEachin did double duty by also styling all of the hair for the shoot. She kept the hair sleek and straight mostly to go along with the edgier vibe of the looks.
It truly takes a team to make a shoot like this run smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with! Angela Cox always captures the perfect moments and her photos are breathtaking. She really knows how to make the clothing shine. Our fabulous models are a huge part of making our shoots successful, they even help out when they’re not in the photos to make sure we get the best shot possible.
Kris Meade is our videographer and he is simply outstanding. He always has the most high tech gadgets and techniques when we see him and this time he brought his drone with him to video some of the looks. Here’s a sneak peak of the drone flying about our models for one of the shots. Can’t wait to see the finished video and to share it with you!
Angela shared several finished shots with us and we are dying to see the rest!
We had a blast putting this lookbook together and we hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek! Stay tuned for more pictures and for the finished lookbook and video to arrive!
In March we shot our Spring 2014 lookbook at the beautiful Moore Botanical Gardens right here in Lake City, SC. That’s right…the gorgeous backdrop you see in the video above is in Lake City, SC and boy are we so thankful!! It provides some of the most breathtaking and unique backdrops and I love how the garden compliments the clothing oh so well! Below is the complete shopping guide to everything that was featured!
