Beyond the Mediterranean | Brumley & Wells + Cori Cook

This time last year, we set out to design a shoot that would show off a design style we were preferring but not being hired for as often as we would have liked.  This year and last were huge growing years for us as floral designers.  This inspiration intensified during our time at The Little Flower School, where our floral minds were BLOWN and we began dreaming of a more artistic floral design style that involved more shape, complex color palettes, and lots of great greens and fillers.  But we had to be able to show it before we could sell it.  Thankfully, we had just connected with some new film photography friends, Brumley & Wells, at a recent wedding we had done together, and they graciously agreed to photograph the shoot.  It was a dream team.  A year later, and we still sing their praises to all of our clients, because, well, they're just awesome.  

Needless to say, these photos have been burning a hole in my pocket over the last year, but completely worth the wait when we laid eyes on the awesome 8-page magazine feature of it in Utterly Engaged and another great feature on 5280 Home.  There's just something about seeing your work in print that makes your heart sing.  More on those features later!

But for now, with no further ado, enjoy this lovely shoot.  Thank you to our gorgeous models, Leah & Tricia!

Clean Modern Inspiration | La Boheme Events + Cori Cook

I'm so excited to share this lovely shoot today!  The inspiration behind the photoshoot was the idea of a gloomy spring day...mixing the moody and sophisticated backdrop of The Kitchen Upstairs with a cheery spring color palette of whites, greens, and yellows and using spring florals like tulips viburnum and blooming branches.  Polka dots were a subtle, running theme throughout our design, reminding us of rain droplets on a gloomy spring day.  

I love how it turned out and really the best part of putting this together was working with the sweet Bridget from La Boheme Events.  It was fun to collaborate on design ideas and find that we were always on the same page about how the design evolved!  Creativity is so much more fun when shared!  

To our delight, this one got lots of great attention!  Check it out on Snippet & Ink & Reign Magazine.
