The Styling Pilgrimage I
“We choose to host the shoot in this breath-taking setting, nestled in an oasis in the desert but not far outside Marrakesh. We were more than thrilled to be able to collaborate with Jen Huang, her tender style of photography and her manner in which she approaches a subject was a perfect partnership for us and our vision for this very unique experience we had to offer to our participants.” Pearl & Godiva
Over the past three years, we at Pearl & Godiva have built an eponymous brand and reputation for creating out of this world and beauteous events and editorial shoots. After many many requests, we finally designed a workshop especially for artisan vendors in the wedding industry and this beauteous shoot was created for the first of our series of 2014 workshops entitled ‘The Styling Pilgrimage’.
This shoot is based on a fable – an exquisite and delicate girl, unraveling her heart and soul to a boy. The story starts with glimpses of her by herself, cocooned in her little world, a little shy and lonely, till she begins to blossom when she meets her very soul mate. Together they embrace a path of love and explorations. He lifts her veil to the world and releases her beauty and luminosity. The couple become inseparable, translucent, an honest journey where one figure seems to deliquesces into the other.
As with all our shoots and events , we step outside of the box and cast off staid conventions as well as tell a story with our unique visual language that is both organic and avant garde. All of our projects carry a narrative that breathe a new life into the imagery. You can visit one of our workshops where we tell all…..
