In-Studio Perspectives

This week’s post is about a styled shoot I participated in yesterday. It was a lot of fun to be involved in the “organized chaos” and to see my hats on such fabulous models. Check out the hair, makeup, costumes, flowers, staging…so very cool.

The theme is “Chasing Alice,” a fantasy wonderland-inspired wedding. I will post some of the professional photos taken by Black Box Photography in the near future. In the meantime, I attempted to capture the spirit of the session with my iPhone that I share with you now.

Hello friends,

I have made quite a number of hats and headpieces for weddings: some for the bride, some for the mother-of-the-bride, one for the grandmother-of-the-groom. So when I received the following project, I was happy to try something new. The top hat below was to be worn by the groom.

Two youngsters were in the small wedding party and it was decided that they should wear similar hats. These hats were fun to make and I had to call on some millinery techniques that I don’t often use, like making a grosgrain ribbon brim edge. Here are a few photos of the hat in progress and the finished products. These little men look so cute!
