Indeed we see the intensity of their touch, the passion in their eyes, and the closeness between them. The way this brilliant team weaved together this love story is inspiring us today and we can't get enough of it...
From stylist Janna Brown Design: "As I built the concept of “Tangled in You,” I wanted to curate a shoot with strong roots, a story of two lovers entwined in each other. I aimed to create a passionate and intense storyline, with an emphasis on the physical connection between the subjects. As the workshop commenced, I directed the attendees to focus on the connection between the models and hone in on the power of the two drawing each other inward. I wanted the images to capture intimate closeness, being both strong and moody, and I wanted the models to find themselves tangled in one another.
When approaching the floral design for this shoot, I wanted to create something as dramatic as the backdrop, the gown, and the storyline. The hand-tied bouquet was brimming with foraged greenery and countless floral varieties, and was adorned with yards upon yards of antique gold Silk & Willow silk ribbon. Donny’s images portray a fierce connection with a great deal of passion. The strength of the intimacy that he captured is nothing short of romance novel worthy!
Standing on the shores in Oregon and watching this shoot unfold was a beautifully rewarding experience. Seeing Donny and Tyler Rye's labor of love come to fruition, and being a small part of huge team of exceptionally talented vendors was both humbling and good for the soul. Many times in this industry, the experiences and the relationships you gain become more fulfilling than any photograph could ever hope to be."
