This week I was encouraged by Suzanne at my internship with SheWanders Photography to get out and do my own photoshoot! I recently watched The Grand Budapest Hotel and was incredibly inspired by Wes Anderson's use of colors, vintage props, serious facial expressions, and straight-on shots.
So I borrowed Charles & Caitlin to do a Wes Anderson inspired shoot at the Horton Grand Hotel in Downtown San Diego. I incorporated some of my favorite elements from The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, and the Royal Tenenbaums.
P.S. We had delicious drinks afterwards in the Palace Bar and Jamie the bartender was awesome.
Once upon a time on a mysterious day known as "Black Friday," four female friends did something shocking...they ventured away from the stores and into the wild!
These ladies needed a break from reality and an adventure to call their own, so they embarked upon a three hour drive through rain, peculiar rock ranges, a quick stop for ice cream, and a wide variety of scenery.
On the trip, they brought along snacks, blankets, books, candles, face paint, wine, and 3 cameras to document.
Now, let us keep the rest of the story silent and reveal only what the photographs tell...
Photos were taken on a Nikon DSLR and a Fujifilm Instax and not edited, because well, sometimes nature is the best editor.
