behind the scenes: photo shoot peek

I spent some time over the weekend wrapping up a big photo shoot here at the Delphine abode for our new 2011 desk calendars. So far more than 600 photos have been taken. Trying to narrow it down to just 12 is going to be difficult, to say the least.

from the prop closet: birds and stamps

Here’s a little behind the scenes peek at a photo shoot we’re working on for the website. As you can see, I save lots of bits of ephemera, like the pretty foreign stamps that friends and family have sent me. The pretty tin bird ornament I picked up at SoLo.

in the press: a fun vintage tailgate reception

Many thanks to Abby and the Style Me Pretty team for posting our vintage tailgate reception inspiration shoot today. Seeing the photos brought back a ton of fun memories. To see more photos and read all about the inspiration behind the photos, please visit Style Me Pretty.

I had a blast working with Adrianne and Jen on this. Special props to darling Julie, who was extraordinarily patient and kind while we dressed her up and had her running all over the yard in a pink crinoline and heels! The super fun vintage lawn games and most of the “furniture” is courtesy of Jennifer at SoLo. The very best part of this shoot: sipping the champagne and devouring delicous Cupcake Love “props” with the team after the wrap!

from the prop closet

Another behind the scenes peek at a photo shoot. This one uses one of my favorite props: rolls of stamps. I have always been fascinated by state flags and I just adore these stamps.

in the press: classic tea party bridal shower

Many thanks to sweet Cyd for posting all about the classic tea party bridal shower that Adrianne Smith and I designed (beautifully shot by Jennifer Dery Photography). Please pop over to The Sweetest Occasion to read about our little adventure.

I used our new Charleston Stitch design for the invitations in our mai tai and dull silver inks.

Our sweet stir sticks add a pop of color to the table. And mmmm, those Cupcake Love cupcakes were so pretty and delicious.

I love the sweet tendrils in the centerpiece Adrianne Smith designed. So romantic, the dahlias and roses mixed together!

You can see loads more photos and read all about the inspiration on The Sweetest Occasion.

Special thanks to everyone who helped make this shoot possible. Especially Jennifer Dery, who was able to capture the romantic spirit so perfectly with her amazing eye.

sneak peek: formaggio & dolce wedding

Here’s the final of the three inspiration shoots I did with Adrianne Smith and Jennifer Dery last week. While the sweet pink garden tea party is, well, sweet, and the retro rockabilly tailgate party was super fun (champagne in a can! what can be better?) this Italian-inspired “Formaggio & Dolce” (cheese and sweets) shoot was hands down my favorite. From the chic, muted, tone on tone color palette to the vintage found objects to the stunning (STUNNING) cafe au lait dahlias and arrangements, to the impossibly delicious cheeses from Dolce, this “faux” party turned into a real party as soon as the sun went down. I’m so excited to share the photos, but you’ll have to be patient while we wait for publication elsewhere (details to be announced on publication of all three shoots).

from the prop closet

Just a few little trinkets from our prop closet: a sweet peach and yellow butterfly, a darling mini guava teapot, and a few rolls from my growing japanese washi masking tape. I love the green and white stripe tape, of course.
