Styled Floral Portraits at Ivy of Wheaton

When Andrew's Garden asked me to photograph their new collection of designs for 2016 featuring the styling of M & Co Salon and rings from Costello Jewelry at downtown Wheaton restaurant Ivy, I knew I was in for a treat. 

Pocket flowers, a bodacious bouquet and a stunner of a centerpiece come together in a marriage of classic style and modern trends.

The dark, moody lighting in the restaurant and palette of rich jewel tones of the bouquet brings to mind the exquisitely dramatic still life Dutch paintings of the 17th century. Wait long enough and fashion will always come back around.
