Bel Ami | Videography behind the scenes of a style shoot
October 11, 2015
Yet another blog post that I don’t actually have to write myself… muhahahaha.
We got invited to take part in a gorgeous style shoot in downtown Toronto. While style shoots don’t have the excitement and joy of a real wedding, it’s a chance for us to get some pretty shots without the pressure of it being a real wedding. (You can’t redo that first kiss in the event that you miss it!) Videography is a bit unforgiving in that way.
From the Wedlux website:
This Glitterati Style File from our current “Literary Love” issue takes elements from the Paris-based novel, Bel Ami, and injects a serious dose of glamour and opulence (with a healthy splash of powder blue and gold accents) to create an undeniably French setting. From the custom gown adorned with delicate shoulder jewellery to the dessert table filled with a trio of floral topped cakes, this editorial is one that’s all about luxury and decadence. We especially love the champagne tower and personalized Prosecco favors —what better way to end a celebration than by popping some bubbly?
Another wonderful thing about style shoots is that you get to work with some pretty awesome vendors. Purple Tree Photography took some amazing shots of the gorgeous flowers provided by Berries and Blooms. Too many vendors to talk about them all here, but suffice it to say it was an incredible shoot at the George Brown House in downtown Toronto. You can see the complete list of vendors below.
