A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of shooting the new collection by Leeanne Ripley-Garrett called Fairytale Emotions.
We only had a few weeks to get the team together and find the perfect location for the story of the shoot.
Leeanne found the perfect venue, Hall Place in Bexley, Kent which is a 15th Century Tudor Manor House, which has been beautifully preserved and all its original feature remain.
Once I saw the venue, I knew exactly the style I wanted to achieve and I put together a short shot list from my memory of the location ( I shot a wedding there many years ago!)
The look and feel of the venue suited Leeannes “Fairytale Emotions” theme really well and I liked the idea of using the models to loosely emulate Suits of Amour, based around the location.
We chose two lovely models, Ana and Laurie who we knew had great performance skills as well as being good models and great team for hair and make-up.
I also brought along two assistants who have completed their work experience with me at the studio, believe me, there is no better work experience than being out on location for a full fashion shoot!!
I hope you like the images we created, and enjoy the sneaky peek at the behind the scenes action!
