It's always such a creative experience when working with Zhanna of Ames and Oates. We've been able to collaborate on quite a few beautiful projects. Our most recent shoot we set out to emulate an image we shot before the holidays but with a fresher feel to it. Above is the final product which now beautifully adorns the front page of the Ames and Oates website
I've really been loving building these tablescapes. Each one starts by simply placing a plate on the table, then adding another, maybe some silverware, then moving the first plate, adding some candles, moving the plate back etc etc. Until we have an "effortless" meal being shared by friends. While it's time consuming it's a lot of fun. Here are some behind the scenes shots to demonstrate how much effort actually goes into getting one shot. Enjoy!
