Oh The Great Gatsby, a tale of impossible love, dreams and tragedies….thank goodness the iconic style of the 20’s and 30’s is what mostly influenced our styled photo shoot! We did have a hiccup, but overall the day was just as successful and beautiful as part one of our styled shoot at the Dunes Club last week (incase you missed it here is that blog).
Here’s the preparation list of contacts for our styled shoot
- Location – Vasilika at The Members Club at Grande Dunes
- Model – Whitney
- Make up – Mary Chestnut with Makeup Artistry on location
- Hair -Wing Wong with Salon and Spa 18
- Flowers by Robert Gerba with RSG Event Designs
- Dress – Nichole at The Little White Dress
Our model was superb. Mary and Wing transformed her in to a classical and elegant beauty. The dress! I will never forget that stunning design, how it fit our model like a glove and fitted perfectly to our Vintage Gatsby inspired theme. When she walked out of the changing suite, even bystanders awed as we exited the building. We marveled at her hair, makeup, and how well the dress complimented her and the look we wanted for this shoot.
Then came the tiny tragedy, “Rollsmarie” (a 1930’s Rolls Royce) had a flat and the sun had already started to set. Were we going to have enough time to capture the essence of our location?
Making ample use of our time, we began without the classic car and Whitney moved beautifully in her vintage gown. Then, just as dusk hit, Robert cruised up and parked in front of the Members Club’s front doors.
With the car on site, our models boyfriend lending his support as our groom to be, we all decided to continue shooting as the light dipped in to dusk. The cool breeze in the air with night approaching gave the shots more vibrancy and atmosphere that we anticipated!
Remember from our other blog, I said I intended to make this styled photo shoot entrancing? Well, see for yourself! Thanks to the Members Club for allowing us to shoot at your beautiful location and to all the vendors involved for the time and effort to create such a wonderful series of images.
