Behind the Shoot: A Midsouthern Night's Dream

Whew! We just wrapped up two back-to-back shoots with our sweet, mucho talented friends at Bows and Arrows and The Bell Jar. The shoots were absolutely beautiful and we had so much fun! Can't wait to post photos from Apryl Ann Photography soon. Until then, check out some of our behind the scenes shots.

The first shoot, themed "A Midsouthern Night's Dream" was all about rich, organic, forest whimsy. We provided a true feast of magical Southern delights: an elegant, three-tiered vanilla bean buttercream cake crowned at layers with lavender and artemisia, a naked carrot cake fashioned with gorgeous fresh green figs, apriots, and donut peaches; blackberry and fig tarts dusted with gold; and a rustic fresh berry meringue pavlova adorned with rare golden raspberries!

 Sometimes our makeshift studio happens to be the back of our car.

 Organic lavender and artemisia from a local farm add even more beauty to our vanilla bean tiers.

A living still life with fresh fruit.

Where will the forest take you?

Somewhere sweet we hope!

/// Stay tuned for more photos from this gorgeous shoot.
