I’m so excited to share with you today one of my favorite shoots of all time. The only way to describe this day in the rain forest with my creative friends is: magic. From the energy, to the inspiration we had that day, to the people– it was nothing short of once in a lifetime. When we set out to do this shoot we had a loose plan, and as the day unfolded and our excitement got the best of us, it resulted in this: an experience and high that I will never forget! From watching Carla Ten Eyck get overly excited about light, to seeing Tony chop down vegetation in the rain forest and creating beauty on a dime and Beth Chapman be so inspired by the surroundings and can change fashion in a second. Not only did we create something we’re so proud of, but we had the BEST time doing it. I want to extend a huge thanks to Stay in Costa Rica at Los Suenos resort and Michelle and Alejandro, our real life couple and models for the day.Even more thanks to Susannah, Diana, Daddy and for the helping hands and inappropriate jokes along the way!
This shoot was initially inspired by an anthropologie catalog I received a few months prior to our shoot. We went with a bohemian 70’s vibe and found the perfect location at the base of a mountain leading up to Pura Vida Gardens. The day started at a local surf shop where Alejandro works in the town of Jaco. More about this shoot can be found in our new e-zine, A Jubilee Event. Make sure you subscribe to see more images of this shoot— along with a lot more content for planning your next event! Be sure to view the video by Buzz Media which really captures the essence of the last shots on this day on top of the mountain. xx!
