Behind the scenes at a Save the Date magazine Photo Shoot!
Hi, I’m Claire and I’m currently on work placement with Lydia & Abbi at Save the Date Magazine.
Last week, I went on site to my first photo shoot at the breathtaking Belvoir Castle and it was a fantastic experience. Getting to see the sort of shoots we feature in the magazine and see it go from an idea to a shoot is amazing.
It’s clear how much work goes into these things and the end result was beautiful. The shoot was set on the popular children’s novel ‘Narnia’ and the theme came across brilliantly in the shoot. There were models, a hair stylist and makeup artists flying about in the rooms upstairs getting everybody ready. Everyone was swooning over the beautiful head pieces that were going to be used and a lot of tea was drunk by all.
Stylists were lighting candles and spraying a white blanket of fake snow over the set and it looked like a winter wonderland. I was taking photos on my phone as the Guardroom was transformed into a magical scene before my eyes.
Here are my ‘behind the scenes’ shots (taken on my phone so apologies if the quality isn’t perfect):
Keep checking back on the blog as we’ll be publishing the shoot itself with professional images from the photographer very soon, plus the winter wonderland shoot will feature in the next edition of Save the Date Magazine, out in January.
