It was such an honor to prop style for Men’s Wearhouse latest wedding campaign. For the art direction, I was asked to pull chic wedding props to go with our location the Paramount Theater in Oakland. For instance, for the cake cutting scene I used a bar cart from Seventh Heaven Vintage Rentals and paired it with a real cake by The Whole Cake (who was super awesome and made me this cake with less than a weeks notice and during the height of wedding season). Other scenes included a “guys getting ready” and a first dance scene featuring oversized marquee letters from Bright Rentals. The reception portion of the shoot was shot at Bear Flag Farms and featured a nuetral white and blush palette. And commercial photographer, James Dimmock, captured the photos.

Citrus Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for The Komans
Named Best of 2017, Style Me Pretty

kellyoshiro.com | photo: The Koman | San Francisco Prop Stylist

I’m so excited this portfolio shoot for The Komans was named as one of the “Best of 2017” shoots. I was inspired by the annual blooming of citrus blossom that happens every spring in Santa Barbara. For decor, I foraged lemon on the branch with citrus blossom (this had to be the best smelling shoot ever) which Coco Rose Design then incorporated into the floral arrangements on the table and in the bouquet. Susan Silverberg created a lemon themed invitation with a beautiful line drawing of citrus which I styled with gorgeous citrine earrings from 33 Jewels and more lemon on the branch.

For the bridal styling, I was inspired by the slightly Spanish feel to Musat’s wedding dresses. I chose a bold red lip and a sleek hairstyle featuring retro finger waves that gathered into a chic and modern chignon by Kohnur. For the ceremony look, the custom dress featured a full skirt, billowy sleeves and a modern take on lace that I absolutely loved. For jewelry, I chose simple yellow Citrine earrings (don’t they look like candy?) which caught and reflected the light. And for the ring, an insane flower ring made by local jeweler, 33 Jewels.

For the tabletop design, it was all about color and I picked La Tavola’s new velvet runners in “Golden” as the base for the table. Simple white and clear place settings from Pretty Vintage Rentals and my brass goblets made up the placesettings. And for a unique place card idea, I placed the name card underneath the clear plate with some citrus leaves and individual lilac blooms. Lush floral arrangements in terra cotta compotes featured featuring citrus on the branch, nasturtium, orchids, and parrot tulips. In between, I placed taper candles from Creative Candles in cafe au lait and then scattered lemon in between.

Finally, what’s a better way to use lemons than to make a lemon kumquat cocktail?

Lemon Kumquat Cocktail Recipe:

.5 oz Cutler vodka

.75 oz Homemade kumquat cordial (or St. Germain)

1oz Meyer lemon juice

Large Pinch Earthtrine Farm fresh tarragon

Combine in shaker, shake vigorously, double stain into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a tarragon sprig and a Meyer lemon twist.

A special thanks to the Santa Barbara Historical Museum for hosting the shoot and all the vendors who contributed!

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

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Jeanni Dunagan for Flutter Magazine | Chic Pizza Party Ideas | Prop stylist for food

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!

I’m super excited to have prop styled for a food editorial with amazing Chef Michael Cimarusti for Coastal Living’s October 2017 issue. His annual party, Seafood-palooza, became the subject of this editorial, from lobster, to oysters, to gooey duck salad, it was the most delicious set I’ve ever worked on.

His wife, Crisi Echiverri, a talented pastry chef, made the delicious kumquat cake for dessert. I styled the shot with a matte black platter and a stack of organically shaped plates both from Porch, iron handled flatware from Hudson Grace and loose kumquats clipped from the couple’s garden. Food styling was handled by the lovely Yasmin Alishav who made this delicious cake look camera ready and photos were captured by Tom Story.
