A cherry blossom shoot has been on my bucket list forever. I've been kind of obsessed with cherry blossoms for a long time. In fact, I actually used a fine art Japanese paper called Chiyogami featuring a cherry blossom print for my wedding invitations. At any rate, this year I finally pulled off the shoot-- thanks in no small part to this phenomenal team of girls who managed to pull my style vision into reality with a scant 4 days notice.
As soon as the white flowering trees started to pop, I went to check on the grove of pink ones and sure enough they were about a week out. The weather was an amazing 70 degrees for February. Everything just came together like magic. Enjoy!
