WIND | Erich McVey's Workshop

As a root element, wind has its subtle beauty while at the same time being powerful, striking and forceful. Thin, natural and cold. All of these words and descriptions came up when creating each piece for this shoot. Ginny Au contacted me about her direction and inspiration for Erich McVey's workshop in Bend, Oregon, and with the way she described each piece and movement, I became so enthralled and excited to be a part or these shoots: The four elements along with other items for the attendees at the workshop. So let's start with WIND, shall we? To say I loved the color palette would be an understatement. Cool, natural tones and colors are so inspiring, and against the harsh and bold backdrop of the desert, I just about died when I saw these photos. I am so grateful I was able to be a small part in this workshop and these shoots, and these images from Erich McVey are simply stunning. Scroll through to see my favorites from the entire shoot and to see the rest of the fabulous team!

Those berries!! Dreamy boutonnières by Ashley Beyer.

This paper was amazing to work with. That shade of blue is perfection, and the rough edge added the perfect touch to this table setting. Paper found and delivered from Spain by Ginny, and I mixed up a soft white ink for the menus and a gray/porcelain/blue for the place cards. 

Frou Frou Chic Ribbon. Of course.
