Every time I get a chance to create with the queens at FABloomosity I know it’s going to be magic … and this time was no different! I was able to score some gorgeous pieces from my pal down South Madonna Enchanted for the shoot to adorn my sisters Emily and Heather. The theme was gothic renaissance revival, a forever favourite of mine. Scroll through to see all the the epicness all these gals created - and make sure to go send them all your love!
A little more than a year ago I met the most talented, ridiculous, kind-hearted, genius, metal/history buff couple that you could EVER FIND. Legitimately, I tell everyone that Amy and Tanner of Paragon of Design were born in the wrong lifetime. They are the definition of "Renaissance" in the modern day! Masters of All Trades, there is nothing they can't do! Back in the summer we were chatting about how rad a goth wedding editorial would be (stick with us...you wouldn't be this far if you too didn't have a dark soul!) Picture Apocalyptica meets wedding! Before you know it, the team was assembled and as per usual we were already too far off into our photoshoot dreamland!
This is Amy's wedding dress, can you believe it! Top hat, cake topper, guest book, entire outfits, accessories and styling all handmade by Paragon of Design. You just don't meet people who have this many incredible skill sets anymore! Special thanks so my forever teammate Donny Lynn Photography for shooting this with me!! You always keep my laughing and keep my energy checked when I am spinning out. And to you, sweet Kaespo, thank you for painting my cello! I know that was a terrifying, nail-biting experience! You did a stellar job. Even more amazing now that I get to keep that as a memory to tell my kids about when they pick it up! Stunning makeup by Ashley Skrocki and hair by Stephanie Herwynen. Enjoy XO!
I truly cannot say enough beautiful things about our city. Everyday my heart is overfilled by all the stunning people that I meet. The story behind this magazine is no exception! I met Jen Hammer years ago in Renee Robyn retouching workshop. Flash forward a couple years and we're both off working in our respective fields photography and she contacted me to inquire about a feature in her new magazine, DragonHaus. It's an awesome local spotlight on the subcultures of our city! Cool alternative artists, musicians and tattooists. Please check it out and send her all your love and support! Thank you Jen for this double editorial + cover feature, you have my endless gratitude!
