Royal Romance: A Styled Shoot

When Derek Halkett of Derek Halkett Photography began to curate the aesthetic for his next styled shoot, he began with a single blue chair. The rest, as they say, is history.

Shot at the breathtaking Jackson Terminal, this styled shoot is a study in drama, mood, and the perfect color palette. Playing off of the rich hues of the venue, Lesley Britt of LB Floral decided to up the ante by adding vibrant hues of yellow to the already astonishing decor, the contrast of which serves to create a truly luxurious atmosphere in this, our imagined love story.

Envisioning a distinct impression of modern elegance, then, we at Custom Love Gifts, Events, and Prints designed deliciously sophisticated invitations with bold touches of the shoot’s signature blue shade, as well as boxes of two-jar favors dressed in coordinating fabrics, each of which contribute to an already spectacular tablescape.

Indeed, it is this attention to detail—a clear theme, as the finish products brilliantly illustrate—which sets this shoot apart. From White Lace and Promises’ sweetheart trumpet gown to Regal Tuxedo’s dapper blue suit and Southern Belle Beauty’s masterful hair and makeup, each aspect of the tableau we created contributes to an overriding sense of majesty unlike anything that we have seen before or since. Without the additions from Sisters’ Vintage Rentals, Campbell Tent and Party Rentals, or Sweet Beginnings by Elaine, we surely would not have captured so unique a vision. Our vendors for this shoot were more than individually talented, but crucial as a whole to the event’s success—and what a success it was.
