I adore the celebration of femininity throughout Gina Cholick's series! The natural lighting is simply breathtaking and works beautifully with the floral arrangements. This series feels like a symphony to me. Individually each artist in this series, whether it be the model or the photographer, is clearly extraordinarily talented and collectively they become astonishing.
With people and with photography, I have found that what we are actually drawn to are the details: the enchantment of the lighting, the kindness in the model's eyes, the unapologetic beauty of the flowers. Gina has a remarkable eye for details. The feeling of grace evoked by these images is so pure and true. It is a whimsical surprise. It is everything that we yearn for, everything that we are too ashamed to ask for, and everything that we need to indisputably give.

From the Photographer | I used the natural light and supplemented it with LED fill light to keep the shoot feeling soft and natural. To enhance the romantic feeling, I stuck to a shallow depth of field and at times a tilt shift lens.
