Legion of Honor Artist's Patio Styled Shoot

So...a little while ago, err a big while ago,  I had the opportunity to plan, curate, style and coordinate this amazing shoot at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco! One cool thing about this (besides everything about it) is that this is the very first styled shoot to take place at this incredible venue.  If you are not familiar with this place, the Legion of Honor Museum is one of the most prominent landmarks in San Francisco, a true place to visit if you ever go to the city.  It displays a collection spanning more than 6,000 years of ancient and European art, contains amazing casts such as The Thinker by Auguste Rodin, and many other works by Rembrandt, El Greco, Monet and so many others.  Truly an incredible place for art, and an equally special venue for a wedding or event.  I cannot recommend this venue more!  

So, on to the inspiration behind this shoot!  We actually had TWO shoots this day, I'm just showing you the Watercolor shoot right now which took place on the Patio outside the Cafe.  This insanely gorgeous patio is not used much (don't know why...??!) so we really wanted to showcase it.  When I did the first walk through with Fay of LOH and Natasha Gillett, the lead photographer on this project, I saw these beautiful vines on the stone wall, and the Barbro Osher sculpture, I was inspired for an artistic watercolor-inspired shoot with a touch of vintage, but still wanted to keep it contemporary.  With the help of the most amazing vendors of San Francisco and the bay area, along with the incredible talents of these photographers and videographers, these are a few of my favorite shots of what we created together.  Enjoy!
