Gill Pike florist - Product photography shoot

 

I met Gill at a Sussex wedding venue in preparation for an upcoming themed, Alice in wonderland wedding. I had been asked by another local supplier, Special Creations by Jane to photograph some details of the day, including some of Gills floristry delights. 

It was during the photo shoot that Gill asked me if I would be interested in photographing some of her wedding props and accessories, so she could potentially sell and display the items on her website. 

So, on a sunny February day I travelled to the countryside "Gill Pike florist camp" and took a series of photographs of vintage glassware, milk churns, vintage ladders, milk churns, jugs and crates. I took a number of photos inside with the use of a portrait LAMP, with soft window light and a bunch of photos outside in the sunshine, using the natural backdrops.

So this was a product photography shoot, something a bit different, fun and challenging. Gill was a delight to work with, generous with her hospitality and her floristry workshop is really something very special and unique.

Here are some of the photographs from the day:
