The next colorboard in our series has a little treat to cool you down as you get ready to dive into the first weekend of summer. We’re excited about the long summer days ahead, starting with this weekend! Lots going on. Amanda’s off to celebrate her bachelorette party, Jillian’s heading to The Viceroy in Anguilla and Hotel Le Toiny in St Barts with a few other bloggers, and Kristina is patiently awaiting the arrival of her new bebe! How are you spending the 1st weekend of summer?

This shoot, with its leather, black lace, and editorial vibe, brings engagement sessions to another level. We admire Heather + Jonathan for wanting something grungier than the typical e-sesh, and we respect photographer, Angelica Glass for her stylistic eye. We’ve been fans of Heather’s photography for awhile, and now it’s so fun to see her in front of the camera with her guy..in this “heavy metal apocalyptic romance” engagement shoot.
A few words from Heather: We knew we wanted something different though from your typical engagement shoot. I also have an appreciation for things that are more thought out and art directed (and love working on mood boards!). Heavy Metal Apolcolyptic Romance were a few words thrown around in thinking what we’d like our shoot to look like. I think we even watched Mad Max prior to the shoot. Jonathan has this amazing flat black beat up Buick. It has so much character and we know we wanted it to play a part. Jonathan and I also scouted locations that were desolate and a little grungy. Next we pulled clothes that we thought would compliment the mood (black lace, leather and heels). We were also lucky to come across a dyed black flag to accompany. I was also very fortunate to have a great beauty team Stacy Pitt (hair) and Nicole Sievers (makeup). I’ve always been such a big fan and admirer of Angelica’s work and have always wanted to work with her. We knew we were in good hands.
