I am not one to lie and I have to admit, I am not a fan of editorial shoots! There -- I said it! They typically have a very quick time restraint and turn around and you have to jam pack all the planning, vendors, styling in a couple weeks. Phew! Plus, I like to put out realistic content to my clients and potential clients.
But -- when Danielle from Gather and Lounge asked me to be a part of this one, I had to say yes! I love Danielle's vintage, California style and her rentals are amazing! She is not only my very good friend but a massive creative force I draw inspiration from on the daily. You will notice her rentals are used in almost all of our custom events and her love of bold colors and out of the box design is to die for!
It was January of 2018 and cold! The mean, in your face cold that rips to the bone and Danielle wanted warm(!) so the Havana Nights editorial was born! Take a peek below and bask in the Cuban sun. Don't cha just wanna get married in Cuba now? Plane tickets booked!
