Chic Pizza Party IdeasPortfolio Shoot for Jeanni Dunagan
as seen in Flutter Magazine

It was so much fun working with Jeanni Dunagan on this lifestyle editorial for her portfolio. I came up with the idea of chic pizza party since I knew our stunning location, Sunstone Villa, has not one, but two, pizza ovens. I tapped my friend Allie Aiello to assist with the food styling and then had our friends be our guests. For an appetizer, I created a large charcuterie board on an old pizza board from Barn Relic with St. Andre brie, dried fruits and sliced salumi.

I styled a make your own pizza station with gourmet ingredients including, blanched asparagus, kale, arugula, prosciutto, roasted peppers, garlic, and kalamata olives. Then the girls made their own pizza to their liking. Wine was of course provided by Sunstone and their Pinot Noir paired perfectly with the pizza. Dinner was held al fresco in the walled garden just off the kitchen.

And even better, this portfolio shoot got picked up for print publication in Flutter!

Flat Lay Prop StylingPhotos by Lydia Murty for the Giving Keys

The Giving Keys was such a fun product shoot to prop style as they wanted a zen garden look to show off their new collection of mala bead inspired jewelry. Props included lots of natural elements like rocks, sand, and crystals. For the rocks, I went shopping at Rincon Beach where I found a variety of shapes and sizes for this shoot. For props, I pulled from some of my favorite Santa Barbara stores like Porch, Paradise Found, and The Sacred Space.

The backdrop I made by painting plain birch panels with dry, textural, paint strokes for an organic look. I used the same paint treatment on risers I found at an art store so I could create levels and depth in the shots. They worked well for both straight on and flat lay angles. Photos were captured by the lovely Lydia Lynn Murty in downtown Los Angeles.

Campaign for The Black TuxSet Design & Prop Styling for Wedding Products

I recently had the opportunity to work as prop stylist and floral designer for wedding company and the uber cool tuxedo rental company, The Black Tux. My girl Annie Cavallo, handled the bridal styling and I handled the set design for all the faux wedding elements. Above, is the couple leaving “ceremony.” I designed a moody purple, black and white bouquet for the bride and a variety of boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. My favorite scene to prop was the cake cutting scene with a dummy cake from Lele Patisserie that I decorated with maidenhair fern and hellebore.

Road Trip Honeymoon
Cover ShootPhotos by Erich McVey for Flutter Magazine

I love styling lifestyle editorials and this one was especially fun special since it was for a featured cover story for Flutter Magazine issue six. We photographed this shoot on location by Erich McVey in Portland and at the breathtaking, Columbia River Gorge. We started at Salt & Straw where our honeymooners enjoyed a sweet treat. Then we moved across the street to Barista, where our couple planned their route over espresso. From there, we drove out to the gorge in an immaculate, vintage, ’55 corvette.

Pre-production on this shoot was challenging. The day before, our shoot location changed based on the location of the vintage car (which we confirmed two days before the shoot day and was extremely difficult to find). I spent 4 hours the day before the shoot driving up and down the gorge looking for the perfect vista location and I found it right before sunset. Then, on shoot day, our female model changed two hours before call time. But as I always say, the more issues during pre-production, the smoother shoot day will be, and that was definitely true this time. Our model couple ended up liking each other (wink, wink) and it shows in the photos. Special thanks to Erich & Amy McVey for photographing such a fun shoot, Beth Level for hair and makeup, Toms for providing shoes & sunglasses, Tracy from Classic Vintage Rentals for props and finding the perfect vintage car, and Sophia Kaman for jewelry.
