Hope you all had a nice Mother’s Day! We’re kicking this week off with a unique Spokane inspiration shoot organized by David from AiP Creative Photography. The theme of the shoot was gothic romance, something we don’t see too often in these parts! I just love how it all came together. David and his select group of vendors did a fabulous job of choosing the right details to make gothic romance shine through. And how awesome does Spokane’s St. John’s Cathedral look???
Here’s what he had to say about the shoot:
“Just before the busy wedding season begins, a few talented friends of mine and I all teamed up for a somewhat rushed inspiration shoot. I called up one of my upcoming August brides, Sheri Bingman, and asked her to model. For what we were trying to create, I thought she would be perfect, and she absolutely was. Then, we added a second model, and again — perfecto! She was exactly what we needed (a special thanks to Alisha Southard from Haute Pink Photography for stepping out to the other side of the lens and modeling for us, instead of snapping her always gorgeous photos from her own camera).
So now that we had our models all ready, my team and I needed to plan this shoot in just about one week. We wanted something on the gothic side, without being too gothic. Kind of a romantic, Victorian feel with a touch of darkness. Most of the wardrobe was very affordable (the black dress was right around $100!). Shasta Hankins was our make up artist, Erica’s Expressions supplied us with one of the most alluring rose bouquets I’ve ever seen, and our hair stylists were Valerie from Salon Capello in Liberty Lake (Sheri’s hair) and Cessiley Southard from Crowning Glory (Alisha’s hair). These pics are a great example of what can be accomplished with only a little bit of time.”
