I'm beginning to like my job more and more. This week I was invited to represent our company De La Rose for a series of photo shoots throughout the city of Laguna Beach. We were asked to provide blushing arrangements and bouquets for bridal shoots to be featured in an upcoming special wedding edition of Laguna Beach Magazine.
The first shoot was at the chic and ultra modern Seven 4 One Hotel along Pacific Coast Highway. While I didn't do much on the set other than stylize the flowers, I did enjoy gaulking at the male models. I decided to give them my business card which just so happened to have my personal cell phone number on it...you know...just in case. Please don't be gay.
The second shoot was just through the canyon at the high-class venue 7 Degrees. I was quite surprised I'd never seen or heard of this place before. It's located right next to the Sawdust Festival and directly across from the Pageant of the Masters. It's an absolutely charming venue and I can imagine it would be an outrageous location for a wedding.
The final shoot was at the spectacular oceanfront Montage Resort & Spa. This was by far my favorite shoot of the week. The photographs were done by the talented and oh so attractive Baldemar Fierro. Don't worry, I gave him my business card too. The shoot which again featured our flowers, consisted of a series of events: a proposal on the beach, followed by a romantic lunch in the room, then an afternoon at the spa, and finally a classy dinner at the 5-star restaurant. I hope to share some images when the special edition of Laguna Beach Magazine hits the stands. They should be amazing!
