This shoot was the product of a little boredom, creativity, collaboration, and a dream I had. I had a dream about this twig-looking princess crown after visiting the Provo Castle one day- and when I woke up, I knew I wanted to do a styled session with that concept. We’ve all seen the typical flower crown but I personally haven’t seen anyone make an earthy-whimsical “princess crown” so I jumped on the chance. I didn’t know the first thing about making one but it turned out like I had imagined. You’ll see it at the end as this story unfolds (a little teaser) and in part two you’ll see her wearing it.
I don’t know- I was kind of making the story up as I went but basically she’s supposed to look like she’s running away to get married. And as the shoot goes on you can see her wedding attire come into the scene. Provo castle was the perfect setting for this, I wanted it to look medieval. I’m just so happy with EVERYONE who last minute helped out donating their time and talents to bring this to life.

I was seriously so grateful for my helpers! Emma’s Parlour. It’s like she could see into my brain better than I could. I asked for half up half down hair and she nailed it- made it whimsical like I wanted and absolutely gorgeous! If you need wedding hair, she is amazing! Bree Lena: for volunteering her stunning gown and offering something that matched my vision. The gold in the crown went with the gold dress and flowed as I had hoped. Such talent in her designs! Then there was Foxglove Flowers & Gifts! I was blown away with the bouquet they conjured. I gave them a vague idea of what I wanted along with a color scheme and my overall vision and Courtney absolutely nailed it and beyond. I couldn’t be happier with everything and everyone’s help!
