MOLLIE’S AHHTOOTS PHOTOSHOOT
We were approached by a fantastic wedding stylist called Kirsten Butler (check out her instagram: weddinghelperuk) and wonderful photographer Joanna Ritchie (check out her photography). They wanted to know if we would be interested in providing props and furniture for a collaboration with the incredibly artistic cake company Ahhtoots (be sure to check out their works of art/cake). Of course we jumped at the opportunity to work with such a talented bunch!
The brief and style of the shoot was to recreate an artist’s studio and fill it with cake. So I went on the hunt sourcing authentic artist materials and managed to find a wonderful collection of paint palettes, paint tubes and oil paintings. One of my favourite items that we found was an untitled impressionist oil portrait. It is a charming and emotive piece depicting and elderly woman drinking a cup of tea and smoking a cigarette:
We already had a number of things in stock that I knew would be perfect for the shoot. For instance a delicate chair, spattered art stools and galvanized paint containers.
We used our lock up for the photoshoot, turning a huge canvas around to use as the backdrop for the photo. We all came together and had a fantastically creative day, it was wonderful to see the different ways we all worked and how it came together to produce some amazing images we are really proud of.
