I can’t tell you what an absolute honour it is to be featuring these images. Louise, owner and designer extraordinaire of Oh My Honey is probably one of the hardest working girls I know. Not only does she work hard, she also lives the most beautifully colourful and fun-filled life which I often think is reflected so well in her designs. Her recent USA adventures were such a treat to follow and the results definitely paid off, I hope you love these images as much as I do!

Louise writes –

Oh My Honey dresses have always been popular in the USA, so I went over to the states to do some photo shoots with American landmarks and scenery involved. It was also a great way to meet industry professionals the other side of the pond.

Whilst researching photographers I came across Emmanulle Choussy‘s work online, and got in touch with her about collaborating on a shoot together. We got excited talking about possible locations and she suggested Los Angels County Museum of Art and the famous ‘Urban Light’ at the entrance to the museum. We thought it would be perfect for the shoot as the ivory dress would look great against the chalky grey forest of pillars.

On the day of the shoot we set up at Emmanuelle’s studio, where make up artist Kymberlee Curtiee designed make up perfect for the style of shoot we were going for, a soft elegant look, with a slight hint of 50’s in the winged eyeliner. The hair was styled by Leay Serizawa into soft curls and she added a little boho hint by draping a pearl necklace around the hair and wrapping the hair into a loose up do.

We then headed to the location. Model Maddison elegantly worked her way around the pillars and posed for the shots. At some points we stopped traffic and even had the tourists taking pictures of the shoot too! We got some great shots that show how a 50’s wedding dress can be worked in a way that isn’t necessarily classical 50’s, but still captures the elegance of the era.
