BEHIND THE SCENES: OUR FIRST PHOTO SHOOT FOR ECO BRIDES MAGAZINE

Last week a team of eco chic enthusiasts and I drove up to the beautiful Blue Ridge Lavender Farm near Dayboro to put on a photo shoot for Eco Brides Magazine. I snapped these 'behind the scenes' shots over the shoulders of pros so you can get a flavour of what's to come in print and online... I  love how The Spring Shop's products looked mixed in with all the other contributors' gorgeous things and I'll be sure to share the official images just as soon as I have permission.

It was my first time working with stylists, models and a photographer so I didn't know exactly what to expect. The level of detail and planing that goes into capturing each scene is remarkable and I couldn't believe how long it all took! We were plunged into the pitch black night before we'd even started packing down the vintage treasures featured in our vision of the perfect picnic wedding. It was an amazing learning experience, quite a lot of fun, and from these sneak peek shots alone I reckon it was absolutely worth all the hard work.

GIVEWAY

I hope these photos are also getting all you soon-to-be-wed (and friends of soon-to-be-weds) excited for the Eco Brides Wedding Fair coming up in Brisbane on Sunday, August 25th.  I posted a giveaway for two tickets to the event in my last post, so don't forget to scroll down and leave a comment for a chance to win free entry!
