From the stylist, Erika: We knew we wanted to create something beautiful and awesome using natural elements. We wanted the shoot to be romantic and soft with an edgy feel. Most of our inspiration came from agate, precious stones, and metal. The hard edges and colors of those rocks mixed in with brass and gold elements were the perfect combination.

When scouting for a venue to bring all of our ideas to life we found the most amazing hidden rock quarry. The color of the water and the cut rock inside the cave was unbelievable! We gold leafed individual rocks, painted wood slabs to mimic agate, cut and wrapped handmade soaps that resembled rock slabs, and crafted a table number using gold painted twigs on a painted concrete chunk. In the end, the shoot turned out even more amazing than we could’ve dreamed.
