Ah, Boston. How I’ve missed you. It’s nearly been a year but it’s like I never left. And what a fool I was to think that I could make it through my trip without experiencing some snow. But two days of it? Yeah, now I remember why I left. How quickly we forget…
Snow or no snow, that didn’t stop Bonnie, this beautiful bride-to-be, from shooting with me in this gorgeous vintage Gunne Sax dress from the 70’s. What a find! We shot in the afternoon as the snow tumbled down with abandon at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University in Jamaica Plain.
Bonnie’s roommate, Maxime, made the flower crown featured in this shoot. Keep an eye out for her etsy store coming soon! You won’t want to miss the opportunity to purchase her handmade crowns, as I find them to be very unique amongst the many floral crowns out there nowadays.
This particular crown featured a dusty rose color, contrasted by brown stems and accented with earthy feathers. I loved this with Bonnie’s natural, airy makeup look, as it gave the stark white a subtle pop of color to match the flowers. I loved how the snow delicately rested on the feathers and petals!
Bonnie was such a trooper in the snow. And so was my camera! Thankfully, they both made it out dry and safe. I’d say the adventure was worth it!
And of course, no good shoot is without its beautiful assistants. Thank you, Anthony and Maxime, for keeping Bonnie glamorous and dry (when you could)!
I’ll be back in Boston from April 19th-27th, and NYC after that! Contact me for a shoot!
