High Fashion Photo Shoot: Part 2 (Featured in GQ South Africa)

Earlier this week, we were fortunate to have Andrea Johnson, owner of Andrea Johnson Floral Design, stop by the Botanical Brouhaha Blog to share a bit about the process behind a high fashion photo shoot she dreamed up and collaborated on with photographer Lawrence Cortez. If you missed it, we encourage you to click here and read Andrea’s behind-the-scenes insights. From conceptualization to execution, she shared the challenges and the triumphs with humility and transparency. If you dream of producing a fashion & floral photo shoot, you’ll especially enjoy the supporting documents she shared — including her actual flower order, call sheet, and mood board from the shoot.

On November 23rd, 2020 a feature titled: Full Bloom, showcasing this shoot from Ontario, was published in the Style section of the December 2020 / January 2021 Issue of GQ South Africa. Today we’re honored to share a collection of the final images with you. Congratulations, Andrea, on a job well done!
