Apple Orchard Fairytale
When photographer John E. McDonald reached out to me in 2017 to collaborate on a fall fashion shoot in an apple orchard, I was excited at the chance to shoot in a beautiful location. We set the plan into motion, but unfortunately, we weren’t able to follow through due to a last-minute setback.
When Fall 2018 rolled around, John was quick to plan round two. We had two great models from MP Atlanta on board, Cris and Bill, and makeup artist Danielle Mitchell on the brushes. John scouted our location and picked the perfect orchard, BJ Reece Orchard in Ellijay, Georgia. The Apple Capital of Georgia did not disappoint, with its rolling hills and dramatic fog. John really captured that fairytale feeling in the images.
I styled Cris in Free People and Anthropologie to achieve a bohemian yet feminine look. I wanted Bill to look classically handsome, so I styled him in Polo Ralph Lauren. Both models wore each outfit so well—fit for a fairy tale.
