Bows, Butterflies, Garlands and Meet-up

Bows, Butterflies, Garlands

Over the past few months myself, Georgie of Beauxoxo (who I shot with earlier this year with Stephanie and Kat, you can see more in a previous post here, and the final set here. :) ) and Dunya of Dearest Deer have been planing to shoot to Georgie's newest collection of accessories, last weekend marked the day of the shoot and with a surprising amount of Sun related luck we had the most amazing weather (possibly the best day of the summer so far... possibly :P )!

I met up with Dunya at the station early in the afternoon and we made our way to Georgie's hotel just after. From there we walked to the Royal Pavilion and started shooting. 

As the weather was far better than we had hoped the location was rather busy with tourists, but that wasn't our primary concern, we were approached by security guards a couple of times while shooting. Each warned us about various copyright laws we were infringing, however as this shoot was primarily for our portfolios *cough* we were allowed to stay. :D

Just after the 2nd warning we finished shooting the first set of looks at that location, we made our way to the sea for a little rest and a drink then we shot the rest of the collection on and around the beach.

Here are a few behind the scenes photos from the day and a back of camera preview!

Be sure to check out Georgie's website and Dunya's blog! Both are fantastic and run by a couple of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure to meet, they deserve your attention! You should also check out Miss Patina who kindly lent us some of their wonderful clothes to use for the shoot!

A few weeks ago I received a massage from photographer Elizabeth Cellarer 
who was going to be visiting Brighton and wanted to meet up and shoot together. As the time rolled round we got closer to the date and I asked the wonderful Vanessa who I have shot with a few times before to come along and model for us. I met Elizabeth at the station around mid day and we made our way into town where we met Vanessa, from there we went to the beach and started shooting!

It was my first time shooting the same model at the same time as another photographer and it was a great experience, I imagine it's a similar experience to shooting during a workshop or something. Keep an eye out for more photos from this shoot in the future, in the mean time here is one of the photos I took on the day!
