Ever since I read The Paper Magician trilogy by Charlie N. Holmberg I’ve been wanting to bring the paper magic from the book to life. And after finding a paper florist, Shoshana Radka, who breathed life into her paper creations I decided now was the time. All the flowers, greenery, and even the hair piece are all crafted from paper by her!
So a little about each element of the shoot. In the books Ceony, the main protagonist, would have attended culinary school if she hadn’t been accepted to study to become a magician and wouldn’t have settled for anything less than magnificent for her wedding cake. Callie Mundy’s cake is magnificent and more and absolutely delicious (We couldn’t not eat the cake afterwards! The top tier was a lovely lemon cake with lemon filling!). The book takes place in Victorian England and so I wanted to emulate the feel of that time with a lovely dress from the Bridal Closet in Draper, Utah. Malinda Pead did an absolute fantastic job with the hair and makeup that tied everything together. For the detail shots I had a wedding sign made by Kayoko Waddell.
A huge thanks to all the amazing vendors and the models who made this shoot possible!
