Behind the scenes.... the nuts and bolts of a putting together a photo shoot

Last winter I had the pleasure of working with  a dream team of vendors .....photographer Emily Delamanter , wedding planner Lindsey Brook, Erin from Wild Orchid Baking at the hip bar Portland Hunt and Alpine club  in the Old Port.... on an amazing photo shoot that I dreamed up....there was a lot of hunting and gathering that took place to make the shoot a success....here are some background photos (mostly from my iphone) of the journey....collecting vintage dresses, trying them on my models (best friend KK and Lily our babysitter were the bridesmaids)... gathering vintage finds from my shop and local antique shops that I love to visit....Lindsey handled the ceremony area, bar cart, flatware, invitations and place cards which were made by Blue Glass Designs....Emily supplied our groom lending us her handsome husband Matt and vintage clothing.....and did an amazing job photographing the day....we had the lovely Marta as our bride and she rocked the floral crown I had made her....all three of us went to visit Andrea's Bridal to pick out the wedding dress and then we all gathered vintage pieces to help style the models... Fabu helped us out with hair and makeup.....it truly was a great collaboration and we all worked together so well....doing a photo shoot is a very large undertaking and has so many moving parts...there are so many people who make it all come together.....Green Wedding Shoes did a full blog post on it right away....it got such a great response....I LOVED it.....I loved the process....and I loved the team of vendors!
