Fun Vintage Movie Popcorn Floral Bouquet

This is an arrangement I came across on a fun floral delivery. This is NOT the item we delivered, I'll post that another time, this was located at the church at the reception desk. I politely asked for permission to photograph it, no prob. White carnation bouquet of flowers placed in a retro vintage movie popcorn container. How clever is that? It's fun and happy and a cheap way to send a friendly welcome message to all who worship at the church right? Happy Friday movie night!

Classic White Wedding Bridal Bouquet

I saved the best for last. This is my favorite shot of a bridal bouquet. Classic. Dramatic. Beautiful. I especially love the black background. An explosion of white roses and hydrangea mixed with bling for a classic white wedding. Stunning!

Lush Pink with Bling Bridal Bouquet

This was an experiment with the use of a pink shiny base. It's also known as decorative floral wrap. One of the first bouquets I photographed and had no idea how this would turn out. The flowers and the bouquet are fantastic, but again I don't like my logo, the background (base) or the artsy angle imho. An example of a not so good bridal bouquet photograph. It's def lush and pink.

Classic Red Roses and Orchid Bridal Bouquet

This is a stunning bridal bouquet with the rich and classic red roses. The orchids are ridiculous with  intricate detail. This shot is nice and crisp and vivid and sharp and all, yet it bothers me, just the fact that it's kind of hard to tell if it's a bridal bouquet or not. Like I stated in my previous posts, I prefer the straight on symmetrical comp shots. I would have chopped off the left blurry edge if I could. Anyway, that's not important, what is important is that it's still classic and beautiful. Right?

Spring Romance Bridal Bouquet

I'm liking the angle of this fresh, colorful, spring romance of a bridal bouquet shot. The glass vase that is used for propping it up is hardly noticeable and ideal. I'm also sticking with the 20% opacity in black on my logo. Subtle yet obvious. In previous posts I would pick a color that was used in the image, but 20% black is just right. Classic with a pop of romantic color bridal bouquet. Love it!

Furry Friend Welcomes Spring Forward!

Even though my latest posts have been colorful, it's been colorless outside and so this idea was the perfect solution! Furby was a perfect model this fine afternoon, at first I shot against the dirty and dingy grass. But then I realized I had the perfect set up by using this outdoor green cushion! It provides a nice colorful contrast. I love it. Spring it on!

Fresh Spring Forward Lily Bridal Bouquet

These past winter months have been colorless so photographing floral arrangements has been a delight lately. We spring forward tomorrow and this collection has been appropriate. I'll be posting an assortment of flower photographs which is not what I normally like to do, but it has been a nice refreshing change of pace. Capturing a beautiful flower and bringing out the colors and vividness is amazing to me. So look forward to me sharing photographs of what I enjoy doing on the side of other projects.

Free Spirit and Green Succulent Bridal Bouquet

This bouquet is one of my favorites. I love the Au natural, romantic, no frills, simple look of this one. The organic shapes of succulents are fascinating to look at. The orchids are real and the succulents are silk (fake) but totally look authentic to me. Kinda hard to tell the difference. Shot at an angle for an asymmetrical comp. A perfect bridal bouquet for the free spirit kinda woman!

Pretty in Pink Bridal Bouquet

Sweet and pretty. I'm liking the angle at which the bouquet is shot. Symmetrical. It clearly displays the colors and details in the arrangement and is still pleasing to look at, not plain. I like to shoot bridal bouquets on their own, without any other distractions because the focus is on the bride-it's her special day right?

Bright and Colorful Bridal Bouquet

If you happen to have bubbly personality with lots of happy happy joy joy to spread on your most memorable day, then this colorful and fun bridal bouquet would suit you just fine. I love the colors personally, they are rich and bold and the flowers (I'm stumped on the exact botanical name) are gorgeous. but I know they're a lily of some sort. Not sure if I want to continue to use the vase to support them when photographed, but I have no models, just props. At least it's a warm and buttery blur.
