Give me a Shiner

This post is about a hard lesson learned in the floral world. ALWAYS take pictures of your work. The images below are from two separate weddings I did that had very similar color palettes and flower varieties. They were both full service weddings YET I only have a total of five images. Wedding work is a lot of work. I know most blogs will tell you the exact opposite. As a floral designer it is hard to get everything set in place, track down all the attendants, and family members PLUS take pictures to document the moment.

I will try to be better about keeping up with pictures on future events. I might just need an assistant. Enjoy.


South Austin Candy

I worked with Candy to create a bouquet and boutonniere for her wedding in South Austin. She loves bling and wanted to make sure her bouquet had a bit of sparkle. That doesn’t mean she wanted a pale palette. We decided to use Sexy Red roses as the main focal flower. She wanted a touch of the classic wedding feel, so adding Vandela roses helped round out the design and soften the overall look. To get some texture and flair I incorporated some feathers and tinted foliage to the bouquet.

The boutonniere picture was taken in my car. My zombie head just wanted to hog up the image. Enjoy.


East Austin Beauty

2014 Styled Shoot

I collaborated with my wonderful friend Anhelo Escalante for this styled shoot. We shot this in late April but we were playing with color palettes that would transition well into the fall. The shoot took place on Austin’s Eastside. The weather was wonderful and the skies were perfect for outdoor photography. Alicia Vega Photography and Model Rossi Ann Saenz helped create and capture our vision.
