A couple of months ago Alicia from the Charity Wedding approached me regarding styling a staged shoot she was doing with Fancy Finn Photography, a Seattle based studio. The theme was safari and Alicia and I both agreed on adding a vintage flare. The first thing that came to mind was early English travelers visiting Africa for the first time and bringing all of their comforts of home with them. Their books, china, furniture & accessories.

I borrowed the table (which is actually an antique game table that was used to butcher meat on) and the chairs from my parents house. The cabriolla chair with the lion head was a perfect fit. The wooden animals, whales tooth & mask are from Africa and also from my parents collection. The vintage books with the draping flowers, the mismatched china & wine glasses as well as the candlesticks added a hint of romance.

The amazing paper products are from the Wedding Girl!

This was such a fun shoot to do because I was able to really get creative and create a table scape that was beautiful and over the top!
