Absolutely over the moon to share this drop gorgeous styled shoot curated to perfection by adorable Lucia of @utterlyengaged and an amazing group of artist for the #donnyzavalaworkshop I attended earlier this year. There's no words to describe how insanely beautiful was this sunrise shoot since minute one, Makapuu beach welcomed us with stunning pink skies that left us holding our breath to let the calm breeze of the ocean touch our skins, its was a truly beautiful experience to be surrounded with such amazing photographers and artist from so far away to capture this moment. I am a true believer that every wedding should be as epic as it can get and everything about this inspiration was just exquisite from the delicate flowing gown of Carol Hannah’s to the lovely craftsmanship of the floral designs of Catalina Neal I'm forever grateful for this day.
From Lucia | CREATIVE DIRECTOR & STYLIST Utterly Engaged :
“Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.” – Nikki Rowe
The entire shoot was concepted from these words. The Mood: raw, overgrowth, abundant, magical, imperfect, discovery. The Color Story: dusty mauve, corals, lilac, fern, charcoal. From there the entire shoot becomes a journey of discovery. With open hands, and surrendering to the creative process, everything falls into place in a raw and organic manner that is more beautiful than I could ever imagine.
