While attending the Intrigued Experience at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club… I (Manda Weaver), a photographer in a sea of florists, was incredibly inspired by the exquisite and diverse floral design taking place all around me. Honestly just being in a room filled with thousands of roses, peonies, and sprigs of eucalyptus was enough to set me spinning. But as I watched these incredible ladies working at their craft, I was bursting to capture the beauty around me… So, I called/texted/emailed a few of my local vendor friends about my crazy idea.
At first we gave ourselves a 48 hour window to pull it all together, but then we noticed that the weather was promising to deliver rain. And we wanted to capture this shoot in the light of an Eastern Shore bayside sunset. So we made the decision to shoot during our afternoon break the next day.
Within 24 hours this fresh and dreamy spring inspiration shoot was planned because of the amazing community of creatives I am a part of. I am extremely thankful especially for Anastasiia our model, and Flavia from Annapolis Formal. Those ladies poured themselves into this shoot. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart!!!
When everything finally came together we only had about 30 minutes to shoot, and it was chilly, but… It was everything I had hoped for and more.
