I have a small and beloved collection of antique glass bottles. The bottles were my Grandpa’s and when he passed on I was lucky enough to be able to keep a few of them.The bottles traveled with me to a total of 12 homes (man, I have been around), they are precious treasures that have inspired me tremendously in those 12 different homes. This time the bottles sparked a wedding inspired photo shoot at the beach. The soft hues of my bottle collection served as my color palate and even inspired a few shots (love message in a bottle).
Also, I took a lot of inspiration from walks on the beach collecting driftwood. The oyster candles and garland were made with the oysters shells leftover from my friend John’s party (thanks John). I will share with you later on this week how I created the oyster and driftwood garland, oyster candles and the sea urchin candle holders.The only element that did not work well for the shoot was the super windy evening. Which meant no lit candles and a cold crew, but Skylar, my lovely model was such a happy trooper.
I hope this serves as inspiration for a wedding or party to you or just something pretty on a Monday.

Thank you: Richard Shay, Skylar Leiss, and The McKinney Family for all those oyster shells.
