Woodsy Crimson-Inspired Styled Shoot

From a Russian Red lip to a red-accented bridal floral bouquet, there's just something about a deep red that is incredibly striking - there is a richness and a sense of luxury to it, when done well. This shoot, taken mostly in the woods of Grand Hollows just outside Eugene, focuses on the impact of deep, rich reds, maroons, and crimsons. Touches of  lace, foliage, and organic elements add balance, while fuchsia and gold to complement the crimson hues without stealing the spotlight.

From the photographer, Ashley Cook:

"I have wanted to do a shoot in the woods with a deep red theme for a long time now, so I assembled an amazing group of gals and we set out to making it come together. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I knew that this shoot needed to have a fall feel to it. Originally I had planned on literally just trekking everyone out to the woods and doing the shoot there, but Reina of Makeup by Reina told me about a brand new wedding venue that would be perfect for our vision. One of the owners of Grand Hollows, Shelly, has been a wedding planner for years - using that knowledge, they've built what I would consider to be the ultimate elegant woodsy venue.

 I got together with Danielle from Dream Designs and told her what my vision was. I told her I wanted a deep red, not bright red, and I wanted it very free and organic. I left the rest up to her to play and create what she wanted. Danielle and I have worked together before, so I know whatever she put together would be stunning. For the dessert table, Heavenly Delights Cupcakery put together adorable naked cakes. The mini cakes added perfectly to the effect I wanted for the setting. Dream Designs worked her magic with the floral design for the cakes. We topped it all off with some pinecones to bring the woodsy feel into the elegant dessert setting."
