Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and with fall comes beautiful colored leaves, followed the unique beauty of trees with bare branches. Theres something so appealing to me about the simple beauty of the tree when they stand bare with no leaves. Because I love the beauty of nature and because fall is one of my favorite seasons, the Fall 2016 Collection by Xoxo Couture was inspired by the beauty of the season.
This collection was inspired by the beautiful trees during fall, so what better place to shoot the the collection than a hazelnut tree field! Hazelnut trees look so earthy and natural once they have lost all their leaves, so I could not resist using them as the setting to this collections product shoot! The location was in Chilliwack at lovely chilliwack families property. Because of a blight in the hazelnut trees, it was rather challenging to find a location, but this family kind enough to let us use their field to bring this shoot to life! Shooting the Fall 2016 collection was so much fun, especially when you get to shoot at the perfect location with a dream team of wedding vendors on the most perfectly sunny day! For this shoot I was privileged enough to work with Joanne form Umbrella Tree Photography, Stephanie from Feel Beautiful Makeup Artistry and Montana from Montana’s Bridal Hair! The hair and makeup team was fun, fast and worked together perfectly to create a natural, bohemian look from our model Emma! They had her looking perfect and had all of us off to our photo shoot location right on time! Joanne, from Umbrella Tree Photography was amazing to work with! She has an upbeat and friendly personality, plus lots of great energy and ideas! If you are planning a wedding in Chilliwack or the Fraser Valley I highly reccommned working with these ladies!! Thank you so much to all these talenteds ladies in business for coming together and making this photoshoot possible!
