Our dear friend and very favorite photographer, Jen Huang, recently invited us to attend another one of her incredibly inspiring workshops! We had the opportunity to share with her attendees a little about publishing and what editors are looking for. Jen’s attendees always have the privilege of shooting with her as part of the workshop, and I can’t begin to tell you how lovely her shoots always are! Jen is hosting another workshop in March where we’ll be speakers again, so definitely consider attending if you are a photographer!
Today we’re showcasing this inspiring photo shoot inspired by the opulence of the renaissance! It has an old world feel all throughout! We especially adore the dress by Sarah Janks from the Lovely Bride shop in LA (seriously–go try this one on if you are looking for dresses!!!), the hair comb by Erica Elizabeth, the blooms by Kelly Kaufman Design, and those gorgeous cakes created by Enjoy Cupcakes.
Here’s a lovely description about the inspiration behind the styling:
With every Jen Huang Workshop comes an exquisitely styled wedding shoot with a cohesive inspired concept. Inspired by the rich and romantic Italian renaissance period, this conceptual shoot celebrates the height of art and science in Europe. A decadent display of Limoges, gold rimmed glassware, antique metal trays, sumptuous fruits overlaid with peonies, a dramatic centerpiece and a plethora of sweets sits atop a heavy mahogany table surrounded by elegant embellished chairs. The model wears a lovely beaded blush Sarah Janks dress, barefoot and with a low neckline of course. Her elegant evening make up look is complimented by her bright golden curls, and her ever-faithful groom, decked in navy with a pop of magenta, is the perfect match.
