Every season holds its own inspiration. Spring has soft pastels and sweet little blooms on branches. Summer has wildflowers and vibrant jewel tones. Autumn is natural, crisp, and surrounded by amber light. But winter – winter is for snuggling, feasting, and finding warmth.
Originally, we got our idea from Jamie Elliot McPherson – the owner of our gorgeous venue, High Meadows at Vinewood. Together we decided on the color board for this inspiration shoot: a gorgeous juxtaposition of the cool wintry tones of gray with the warmth of firelight gold. To create a sense of the beauty of these colors’ differences, I picked materials that contrasted beautifully with one another – soft, draping burlap and shiny metallic golds. We even chose our models with the coloring in mind – the pair are color opposites!
This shoot is our take on snuggling with your love, feasting at a truly splendid venue, and finding warmth in the long, gray winter months.
