I'm a terrific horse fan so it's with the max amount of joy I bring you today's very special eye candy. What a dream this shoot was for photographers Marissa Boucher and Kimberlee West of The Boudoir Divas. It was shot on the small island of Vieques, Puerto Rico to promote their destination shoots for both boudoir and portrait clients. The concept behind the editorial was to come up with a picturesque scene that drops beautiful model Anna in the middle of paradise amongst roaming horses on a Caribbean island. For me this shoot is a little bit like Jack Vettriano meets Gauguin. The entire team took a ferry over to the Esperanza Riding Company's ranch, where all the photos were shot(http://esperanzaridingcompany.com). Marissa Boucher, founder/owner/photographer, came up with the concept of the shoot along with co-owner/photographer Kimberlee West, who both photographed all the images seen. All the clothing was custom made by an overseas tailor.
I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
