Starry, starry night. Flaming flowers that brightly blaze, Swirling clouds in violet haze, Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue.

Moving when you own a business isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do- Not only are you going, “Oh no! All of my Los Angeles clients that I love so much are going to think I am abandoning them!” but you’re also going, “Oh no! I’m going to miss all of the wonderful people I’ve gotten to know over the years in the industry!” When you work with planners, florists, make up artists, cake artists, caterers, etc. etc. on a consistence basis you form a little family. You know how to work together to create the best possible atmosphere for a bride and groom and you rely and lean on each other for everything from time-line help to referral bases. Moving essentially forces you to be the new kid in town again. You have to build relationships with people by proving your worth through your work ethic and your work quality. When I made the move back to the bay area in December I instantly connected with Janece Shelloe of Every Elegant Design and reached out to her to help photograph a fun project that she developed. She is planning Megan and Kevin’s wedding later this summer and it was so great to get to know her better before their big day!

We had an amazing team of vendors out that day … We took inspiration from Vincent Von Goghs Starry Starry Night painting and ran with it! I was aiming to create some seriously moody, creative images- images that conveyed a more serious mysterious kind of love. It was really fun to be able to approach the “bride” and “groom” from a more editorial relaxed mindset and I’m pretty excited with the outcome.

The tablescape ran today on my absolute favorite wedding inspiration site Junebug Weddings. Check out the post here!

I love the haunting beauty that came out in these images. Really amazing job, Meg! What a unique eye in the video too, I agree that it reminds me of the first Twilight movie. Van Gogh is one of my favs too!
