After many miles ( ok not so many - probably 8 hrs of traveling from our sunny island to Sydney)..
it brings me to NSW, Blue Mountain, Sydney, which has plenty of amazing scenic views.
That’s a seriously undisputed fact.
Some throw backs...
When Leah Kua (a renowned Aussie wedding photographer) decides that I am that Flora Artist she likes to invite to work with her in her photographic "No Greater Love Workshop"
I was over-the-top excited!
Truly, this is my first oversea floral project, though I have garnered a 13 years of floral experience.
Anyhow.. although I have been living in the urban for the longest time, I do love the countryside and this Blue Mountain styled shoot has totally made my heart skipped a beat.
I do wish that time would stop ticking and just freeze!
Lovely looking orange autumn trees, this sight, only the eyes can fully capture that aura.
The sweet scent of mountain air that captivated my every senses; the rustic branches by the side of the pavement …
not to mention those amazing houses!
It’s picture perfect.
Kate, founder and editor-in-chief of the beautiful Magnolia Rouge Magazine.
Leah Kua, the photographer and a group of us worked through the inspiration for this workshop.
Basically, this workshop was to inspire every attendee to take the time and soak themselves in the beautiful set up.
Also, to work well with perfect lightnings and to create amazing photographs.
I traveled up to the amazing Blue Mountain and we spent a great 3 days there in the pretty much vintage Heatherton House.
I live, eat, do workshop and do floral set ups there. The floral and faunas we got there in quantity were insane!!
I did all the floral arrangements and flora styling and installations for the barn door, fire place table centerpieces, wreaths, garlands, bouquets, boutonnieres and many more .
The gorgeousness of the flowers provided us with a lovely backdrop for the styled shoot.
The idea of the shoot revolve around the natural and the organic.
I worked along side with Kate , in which our work will be featured in magazine's August issue!
Do look out for it! It really was such a valuable and insightful trip, I am glad I made it there!
Below are some behind the scenes pictures, the real professional pictures are up and coming from all the photographers who attended the workshops and of course a good main set coming from Leah Kua and also some from the photographer who had a hand in doing the Kinfolk Australia - Luisa Brimble.
hold your horses and in the meantime enjoy my amateur shots first !
