You know those gorgeous, jaw-dropping photos that you see in magazines and blogs? Many of them are the fruits of very, very hard labor-- hundreds of hours from an accomplished team that is put into producing these extraordinary photo shoots. It's definitely no easy task, but an excellent way to keep us Event Professionals inspired and motivated, as we strive to put our best foot forward.
Last month, I was the planner for a photo shoot for the prestigious San Francisco Bride magazine, and my team was given the theme of Chinatown. Determined to think outside the box to interpret our theme, my phenomenal partner in crime, the very talented Gloria Wong of Gloria Wong Design, decided to take Chinatown beyond the walls and streets of Chinatown, so off we went to Kunde Estate Winery for our shoot with the very respectable (and fun!) Jose Villa.
Think decrepit walls, live chickens, dim sum chest....the concept and details for our shoot were incredible. We hope you will look for it on newsstands in December, when the magazine will come out. Meanwhile, here are a few behind the scene teasers from my very reliable iphone camera!
I will post Jose's photos after the magazine has come out, along with the list of credits!
