Santa Cruz Photo Shoot by Carlie Statsky Photography
October 6, 2011
United States

I literally want to crawl inside these gorgeous images from Carlie Statsky Photography and live inside them forever. And I'm not exaggerating in the least; I'm totally dead serious. I mean, just look at the undeniably amazing styling by Laura Cook...the mercury glass, the succulents, the bold color palette juxtaposed with the super natural and rustic vibe of DIG Gardens. I'm officially head over heels in l.o.v.e. with everything and the fact that they were inspired by all things organic, local, and bohemian? Well, that just makes it that much better. Join me in the gallery for a good old fashioned swoon fest, won't you?

From Carlie Statsky Photography...This shoot was inspired by all things organic, bohemian and local and it was unified by the theme 'love grows'. It was held in a local nursery called DIG in Santa Cruz. DIG is available for events and it was the perfect backdrop for our mock wedding. Laura and I came up with the concept and then Laura did an amazing job sourcing all of clothing and accessories, helping to design all of the printed goods and then styling everything from the alter, to the table, to the models. We had an amazing team of vendors who all helped bring this vision to life, and I had so much fun photographing all of the unique details including signature rye-jito cocktails, invitations and menus that were printed onto thin wood, the bride's blue fisheye toy camera, and whole team holding the 'love grows' sign in front of the long vintage Cadi.
