In late February the almond orchards in northern California transform into a sea of white and pink blooms for only a few weeks.
It’s truly one of the most romantic and whimsical places to shoot! I’d been dreaming of photographing in them for some time, and when I saw the new Naeem Khan dresses at Jin Wang, I knew we had the perfect inspiration. The soft floral lace of the white gown perfectly mimicked the blooms of the trees, and the pink dress pulled on the pinks in each bud! I picked up fresh flowers from the flower market on my way to the shoot. Maria Chang left Faith’s hair loose and free, with soft pink color tones for her makeup. With all elements combined, it was like a Springtime explosion. Della Torre Designs created the most beautiful watercolor and glass invitation suite to accompany the images.
