Classic elegance – where modern meets vintage
Butter Studios: We thought we could kick off the Spring Season with a styled photo shoot that is inspired by vintage details, a French influence, with an overall classic feel.
From a photography standpoint, we wanted that vintage feel without making it feel like we were trying to recreate a setting from the past. Instead, we wanted to simply capture that elegance from a different time period and still let our audience know that this type of classic elegance can fit in today’s modern world.
While we came together in this small team of contributors, each one was the perfect fit for this shoot. The planning really started with a beautiful Jenny Packham “Eden” dress. An embroidered tulle over charmeuse sheath gown with beaded cap sleeves. After falling in love with the dress, which generously sponsored by Bisou Bridal for our shoot, we found the perfect model in Danica to present it. It then came down to designing the right surrounding. We created the couture set by selecting from a huge variety of antique pieces provided by Vintage Meant for Rent.
Butter Studios: The colors we focused on were blue, gold, white and a touch of pink. The hand-painted macarons provided by La Macaronette of course added a little flavor to the shoot and the stunning cake designed by Kien and Sweet, completed the look that we were striving for. Every little bit of detail on the cake was painted and created by hand. The amazing detail would have you think that it was purchased, but this only proves that with true talent, a cake can be a masterpiece.
Butter Studios: The model’s makeup and hair was inspired by a modernized vision of Marie Antoinette, perfectly executed by Margaret Lai. Beautiful couture pieces from Elsa Corsi at Jeweliette, including a set of French-inspired earrings, cuff bracelet and hairpiece accentuated the look we were striving for. Finally, the floral pieces designed by Balconi Floral, completed the styling with a classic and elegant finish.
