Spring Inspired Styled Shoot

 Styled shoots are such a wonderful opportunity for local creatives to get together behind one concept to express their creativity and to push each other into new creative spaces that aren't always practical or available when working with our own clients. The Spring inspired styled shoot brought together many talented women that I have admired from a far and only dreamed of collaborating with on a project like this! 

 With the brightest of blooms and the most romantic of dresses by Win desgins I knew the pressure was on to create something equally as beautiful with the hair.  When I saw Kei from Quill + Oak create  the most beautiful flower combs in a matter of minutes I knew I couldn't look past these adorable blooms as a focal piece for the hair.

Rebecca of Wee Three Sparrows was a master at capturing the vibrancy and playful scenes that transpired in a small studio bursting with wonderful  women, earl grey cupcakes and the most mouth watering meringues I have ever tasted.

Minimalist styled shoot at Miku Restaurant Toronto

We were so thrilled to be apart of this Modern Day Factory Girl styled shoot that was recently featured on The Wedding Co blog.  

 Behind the I do brought together a dream team of local Toronto vendors most of whom we had not had the opportunity to work with before!  The photographer Samantha Ong did a wonderful job of capturing the balance of white space with the weight of industrial elements and geometric shapes creating a timeless and unique aesthetic.

When prepping for the shoot our inspiration was drawn from the neckline and material of the dress and geometric feel of Miku restaurant. We knew straight away the hair could not compete with such a stunning neckline and open back. We choose to keep the finish of the hair extremely clean and crisp , in line with the minimalist feel and introduce soft waves and curves to compliment the geometric elements.

Being apart of creative projects allows us to get our creative juices flowing by  practicing and playing with the principles of designs and balance ensuring the hairstyle has elements that complement the dress, venue and decor! We were extremely lucky to collaborate on several more styled shoots this year and  we can't wait to share them on the Blog in the coming months.
