Behind The Scenes for ‘Ashley Sofia Events’

Spread the love

This was one of the best photo shoots I have done in ages, tons of fun and the location was just superb. Ashley is a self taught florist and has such amazing creative talent. Her floristry is magical, beautiful and original. We decided to get together a few months ago when Ashley contacted me through Twitter. Plans went into action for a very different shoot indeed.

The entire week before we had showers, shadows and no sun whatsoever. Mine and Ashley’s vision was looking like it was going to be doomed from the outset.

We woke up on the day of the shoot to see clear blues skies and not a drop of rain. Here is a look behind the scenes!

Joking aside a shoot like this takes weeks if not months of preparation. The test shots need to be sorted at the location, clothing needs to be sourced, props hired and the setting up takes hours. Tons of hanging about for the model or models. Lottie was freezing between sets poor girl. Coffee runs and catering has to be thought of too. P1130763P1130820P1130826IMG_2646P1130827IMG_2733IMG_2712

Delicious cakes eaten and a little delirious from all the laughter on set we called it a day. Perfect shoot in the bag and and a perfect friendship formed.


This is what can happen in-between all the fun! Here are just a few pictures form the shoot. The rest…well you will have to wait till they are published.
