Our Marketing lady, Blue, may have gone into some details on our fabulous photo shoot from Sunday, but I am going to reveal the truth. The dirty details. What really goes on in planning a photo shoot before we hit the set.
I’ve done a couple photo shoots in the past for creative assignments, but I have never been a part of a Brynn Capella shoot…it was definitely an entertaining but crazy ride.
First, I collaborated with the amazing Allison (our PR intern) to research trends of the 70’s as well as determining what approach we should take to suggest that era without duplicating it in a cheesy way. After we formed our concept board, we set off to the best part- SHOPPING.
Brynn put a lovely dent in her credit card limit at Nordstrom and Anthropologie, but we got some great pieces for our models including high-waisted pants, loose tops, and other menswear-inspired outfits. Paired with the array of Brynn’s fall bags, and we were looking forward to some “shagalicious” photos.
Oh, but the ride was not over for me yet. Because Brynn and I are type-A people on caffeine, we decided to make sheets of all of the outfits, with all of the bags, with all of the pose suggestions in neat little packets…and yes, that did take me FOREVER to complete because my boss always likes to make last minute adjustments to ensure perfection. Love you Brynn ; )
On the day of the shoot, all of this hard work definitely paid off. It was definitely the smoothest running shoot for Brynn so far, and I couldn’t help but smile at the final product that I helped create.
