Styled Shoot | Silverleaf

Styled shoots present so many exciting opportunities for photographers, make up artists and other industry professionals to put their creative minds together and produce something beautiful. This styled shoot by Derryn Schmidt is exactly that. Unique, creative and oh so pretty. When we saw that Derryn had done a shoot with a PURPLE HAIR bride we all squeeled – we knew this was going to be one to look out for. And we weren’t disappointed.

Some words from our photographer Derryn:

I bumped into Ang and Ash at a friends birthday party. “Hey Ang, LOVE the purple hair. Please can I shoot you?”  “With anything but a gun, Sure!”

Collaborating with other professionals in the industry to practice your trade without the pressures of a client is so refreshing. Carolyn and I pulled this shoot together at the very very last minute, but it’s in this madness that magic happened. The silver leaf plant caught Carolyn’s attention at the flower market.  She had never worked with it before, but it reminded her of the silver undertones in Angi’s purple hair. On a whim she whipped up a magnificent necklace out of this exquisite plant. I was, and still am, totally blown away by her genius. The over all look came together perfectly when Kezia (who abandoned her moving trucks and boxes to rush to our aid) created a sexy smokey eye on Ang and gave her hair a few small braids and a few big curls. We started off at an indoor location, but when I realized that the setting wasn’t doing the ‘look’ justice, we flew down the passover into Durban’s City Centre during peak hour traffic and illegally made our way to this roof top location. Angi&Ash are a regular couple who haven’t modelled before. I hope that this shoot serves as inspiration to you when planning your wedding or love shoot.  All the prices have been included at the bottom for your convenience.
