Elizabeth from East Made Event Company, the stylist for the Michael and Carina workshop, was inspired by the simplistic aspect of subtlety for this elegant boudoir shoot.
As photographers, we were tasked with creating inspiration in the obvious, but looking at the obvious in a new way. It wasn’t about elegant boudoir, it was about seeing with new eyes and capturing a feeling. Documenting the textures. Watching the bride play with her hair. Capturing a laugh. Feeling the warmth of the candle. As Elizabeth said, “The most simple details are the most beautiful, so there is no need to over embellish beauty that is already present.”
“Where there is a woman there is magic. If there is a moon falling from her mouth, she is a woman who knows her magic, who can share or not share her powers. A woman with a moon falling from her mouth, roses between her legs and tiaras of Spanish moss, this woman is a consort of the spirits.” ― Ntozake Shange, Sassafrass, Cypress and Indigo, 1976
