The Location Is Everything

I think the biggest thing I worry/think about when planning a shoot is location. You want to make sure that the location you pick matches and compliments the outfits, style and mood of the shoot.  I normally like to consult Brooklyn, my mom and sometimes Justin about a location and get their opinion to see if others will get the same feeling I do. The saying is true location is everything.

When I started planning this shoot, I had envisioned it all outside in Vancouver and getting some of the best spots. Brooklyn and I had a great list of places to go that would compliment my outfits. But I also knew that April in Vancouver doesn’t guarantee good weather and it has been raining a lot this year. I knew I needed a indoor back up plan.

Sure enough I started monitoring the weather 2 weeks out and it showed rain, rain, and more rain. I was pretty devastated at first but I set out to find the perfect indoor location. I noticed Prep Beauty Parlour, they had just moved into a new location and it was stunning. I could picture myself there and I could see the bright white decor would work perfectly. I was so excited when they said I could come shoot at their location. I mean these photos speak for themselves, this place is stunning.

The day before the shoot it was showing 100% chance of rain, I started to panic that I needed another indoor location, at this point we had planned to do half indoor half outside. So I got some recommendations from Jasmine and we planned to go for lunch at Butter Baked Goods and take some photos. Brooklyn and I had both seen photos of the location but never been there. We were walking in slightly blind and not knowing what to expect.

It was really beautiful, very busy but we were both so hungry by then we didn’t care, well I didn’t I know Brooklyn had her photographer brain going a mile a minute looking at spots to use. The photos turned out beautiful, no doubt Brooklyn is a master behind that camera. I loved the soft pink interior and all the sweet treats were divine! This was the perfect spot to end the day.

Thank goodness for planning and recommendations, these indoor locations made the shoot run perfectly! The rain did hold off for us and we were able to get a few photos outside, but that is for another post! 

If you are in the Vancouver area, make sure you go stop for lunch at Butter Baked Goods and get pampered at Prep Beauty Parlour! 

A huge thank you to Brooklyn D Photography for her amazing talents making this the best shoot we have ever done!
