Styled Barrio Viejo Shoot with Butterfly Petals!

EMcDonnellPhotographyBarrio (1 of 1)-6

 

This was truly one of the most fun shoots to do, ever! The ever so talented Amanda from Butterfly petals, dreamed up this romantic little Barrio/ Mexican inspired shoot and brought me on board to photograph it. It was such a treat to get to photograph all her beautiful floral creations. From her saguaro skeleton ceremony pieces, to her beautiful bougainvillea head pieces, everything she does is unique and gorgeous. EMcDonnellPhotographyBarrio (1 of 1) copy copy

 

Once we got a plan together, I asked my ever to talented friend Jenny of  De Filippis Designs to create one of her amazing invitation suites to fit the style of the shoot. The colors were amazing!EMcDonnellPhotographyBarrio (1 of 1)-2 copy copy

The shoot was fun for obvious creative reasons, but it was also fun because everyone involved was so fun! We even had food, drinks and of course- a tequila shot!

The amazing  Sugar Sweet Bakery even got involved, making some delicious cupcakes and cookie favors for the shoot. Their dessert is INSANE. The best cookies I have ever had in my life…and I am a cookie SNOB. Everything they do in that bakery is perfection, aestitically and taste-wise!
