Mary at Lotus Floral Designs is a creative genius, in case you didn’t know. Her bouquets and arrangements are my favorites to photograph at weddings because her work is ART. She channels the style of the great Dutch painters in her centerpieces, combined with her own wild & free sensibility. She is absolute fire. And when she contacted me about this little styled shoot she was putting together, I just said yes. I didn’t even care what it was about, because I knew it would be incredible.
What she assembled was an amazing fusion of Southwest/Native American/Boho/Vintage style all in the middle of a New Hampshire apple orchard….. and it all worked. Just like her vision. It was truly an honor to have a small part in this shoot. All the vendors were so talented, and willing to go super creative for this. All I had to do was snap some photos, but it was really an honor to be included.
We were thrilled when this low-key, fun shoot was showcased in a ten page feature in New Hampshire Magazine BRIDE print magazine! Check it out in the Fall/Winter 2019 issue.

Here are a few of my favorite photos, all capturing some aspect of the work and creativity of the contributors and models:
We had a gorgeous 3-tier cake designed by Jamie at Autumn Nomad, which featured thick turquoise, black, and white icing which looked like Native American textiles. She also provided a couple of other individual cakes: chocolate with chipotle peppers.
The apple orchard provided a magnificent New England backdrop.
Thank you all so much for the wonderful opportunity to photograph all the creative efforts of this group. Such an honor!
