This past fall we had the pleasure of working with South African photographer Brett Florens, and the online education company creativeLIVE. Brett taught a 3-day creativeLIVE course for photographers wanting to break into high-end, high-fashion styled wedding photography. Sugarcomb was brought in to create his set designs, including a bridal suite and ceremony, which were used as part of the live classroom experience.
The vision was to create sets that looked feminine, elegant, luxurious, and dramatic. To achieve this, we started with a color palette of blush pink, coral, gold, and crisp white. We incorporated elements with different textures – organza, crystals, sequins, velvet, and metallics – to add visual richness and a feeling of modern luxury. It all came together with oversized orchid-filled arrangements and lush garden rose bouquets from July Floral Design.
We were privileged to collaborate with a talented team of producers, production assistants, prop managers, and wedding professionals who helped bring our vision to life in the studio. Here are some of our favorite images that Brett shot during the live class.
