Get a behind-the-scenes look at my latest Paper Crown shoot

A lot of hard work and very long hours go into each collection we produce for my Paper Crown clothing line. Each collection involves months of designing and merchandising the collection, countless print and fabric appointments, fitting all the garments and meeting with retailers.  But after all that comes my favorite part: the photo shoot. There is something really special about getting to see everything come to life in such a beautiful way. Which is why I love sharing that part with all of you!

Behind-the-scenes of the Paper Crown shoot

We recently had a shoot for my Paper Crown Bridesmaids line at a beautiful vineyard just outside of L.A. We had such a wonderful time shooting all the pieces and bringing them to life. You can see all the final shots on the blog Wedding Chicks today, but I thought I’d give everyone a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot right here on the site.

We shot on the grounds of a lush vineyard called Triunfo Creek Vineyards. Talk about a dream location…

The vibe of the shoot was ultra romantic with plenty of rose petals, florals, brass candlesticks, crystal chandeliers, and distressed wood flooring…

We had a dream team there to help us make this shoot as beautiful as it was, including Yoni Goldberg and Valorie Darling taking photos, Kristen Ess doing hair, Amy Nadine doing the models’ makeup, and Kate Martindale doing the prop styling.I love how the final photos turned out, and hope you check them out on Wedding Chicks. And for anyone asking, you can shop the collection at Bella Bridesmaids, Nordstrom, and Hudson’s Bay.

Which detail of this shoot is your favorite?

I’d love to hear!

  • This is such a dreamy place for a wedding, and I love the vibe of these pictures! The picture with the couch and petals scattered around it is probably my favorite–I love vintage furniture. 🙂

  • I love both the setting and dresses. The textures, fabrics and colors you use on your Paper Crown collections can’t be more beautiful.

  • Ah that setting is beautiful!! I love your delicate and feminine touch on every look 🙂 Also, so excited for the air of the Hills reunion ep/recap! So exciting!!

    This whole post made me giddy! My favorite detail from the shoot was the sofa with the flower petals, exposed ceiling beams, and the chandelier(!!!). This was the epitome of romantic and is great inspiration for a wedding or engagement shoot. Loved everything! You’re living my dream life. 🙂
