For our latest Bay Belle collection we wanted to try something new! We normally shoot inside a studio or with a white background for a clean look. For this shoot we wanted to use the beauty of nature as our backdrop.
We wanted a romantic setting for our shoot. We searched multiple outdoor locations throughout the Bay Area and we chose the Morcom Rose Garden in Oakland, CA. It is a beautiful outdoor space filled with roses, fountains and beautifully landscaped grounds. The photos came out so beautifully we didn't even edit them!
We wanted the romantic feel to translate to hair and makeup as well. Hair was done by Kerris Yvonne, makeup by Adriana Reed and photography by Anika Janell. We were so happy with every detail of this shoot. Check out more of our behind the scenes photos above!
