I have been waiting patiently to share this shoot with you in addition to two of my favorite wedding artists whose work I enjoy endlessly.  So this is how the story goes…

Last year while searching for a makeup artist in my region I stumbled upon the website of Daniel Lanton.  His hauntingly beautiful images jumped from the screen and I instantly felt as if I had found a kindred spirit.  All of this, I derived from seeing just a few of his photos.

I immediately hired Daniel to capture shots of myself and The Momental Girls last June and then again in August.  His style is dramatic and edgy with a vintage edge and intense sense of color.

In October Daniel and I had the chance to truly collaborate as artists.  After spending a day away from the studio I visioned a crazy idea to lead my very own tabletop shoot.  A call to Daniel was the very next step and the rest was history.   Take a look here, here, here and here for more on our shoot.

Enter Central Park Flowers…. I first met Dorian at a wedding show and the timing could not have been more perfect.  I was searching for a floral artist to collaborate on my shoot and after seeing Dorian’s work, I knew he was the perfect choice.

Recently Daniel and Dorian came together to produce the loveliness below.  The snow IS real, the vision is breathtaking, the results…enchanting.

Daniel and Dorian, thank you for your artistry and vision.  I am priveleged to know you as artists and honored to work with you as friends.
