From Emma…. Sally Pinera of Sally Pinera Photography and I spoke a lot about pulling together many layers of tones and texture in a warm, earthy palette, with tinges of peachy, apricot tones. Our team, Poppy Design, is made up of my mom and l, and she focuses on creating a mood with elements of the table top decor and allowing that to compliment the tones and mood I choose to use in flowers.

My theory in flowers is quite simple, I try to leave create a loose color pallet, and choose different variances in tones and textures to work with. For this shoot, that mood was classic California al fresco dining, laid back, approachable, yet laced in with classic California wine country elegance in details such as the crystal stemware and decanters.

We dreamt of a warm, sunlit setting, with lots of sunbeams and light coming through the images. The layers of textures and tones in the white chipped French chairs, the rich wooden farm table, paired with a hint of powder blue linen napkins on porcelain plates really allowed us to dream up a pallet in the florals that were reflective to our setting.

We chose to use warm hues to reflect the golden California hills and sunshine, the soft palette allows you to soak up the surroundings, rather that compete for the attention.

Romantic Lavender Field Inspiration Session

Purple is my alma mater’s color, but I haven’t been particularly in love with the hue since I was a little girl. But this ethereal lavender field inspiration shoot from Jennifer Kulakowski has me completely smitten. From the rich berry hues of the flowers to the breezy backless gown and stunning tabletop china, I’m in truly, madly, deeply in love. One look in The Vault, and you will be too.

Rustic Venue

From Jennifer KulakowskiOur vision for this editorial session was to capture the simplistic beauty of a bride on her wedding day in an equally tranquil environment. We choose the alluring Clairmont Farm Lavender Field to perfectly complement our vision with their endless fields of purple, unique singular blossoms, and not to mention the divine relaxing scent. We combined unique details to tell our story using a wedding gown of grey layered chiffon, place setting calligraphy on macaroons, and stunning florals of amnesia roses and burgundy anemones. Our desire to capture the emotions and sweet expectation surrounding a bride on her wedding day, led us to this romantic daydream of a session.
