Last Wednesday I was contacted by a friend of mine who is friends with the founder of Sugar & Soul Photography, Melissa. She explained to me that she was doing a photo shoot with some models from Panache Modeling agency, and asked if we (Independent Jewellers) would like to be a part of it. Since this is something I had never done before, I thought it might be pretty cool to put some glitter on some beautiful models.If you have never seen a photo shoot, or how it gets done, it’s pretty impressive. Literally, 95% of the time is preparation. Everything needs to be just perfect, from the lighting to all the display props, to the models themselves. This particular shoot took place at the Gasthaus Gutenberger and had a German fairytale theme to it (note: if you haven’t been to the Gasthaus, GO! Their food and ambiance is like nothing else in the city). The restaurant was perfect for this theme as they are one of the few German restaurants in town and is a Winnipeg institution. After everything was set up, and the models looking like a million dollars, the actual photo part of the shoot only took about 10-15 minutes! Tear down was even quicker!!Melissa, along with all the other people involved on this, did an absolutely amazing job. The pictures are incredible, and even though it was a rather dreary day outside, she made everything look incredible. The ring and pendant that Annika is wearing in the photos are from our Forevermark collection, and I had Chad wear a Rolex GMT Master II and a beautiful platinum band.
