I’ve had such a fun time guest blogging this week on Design Sponge and I’m so sad to see the week end. I really cannot thank Grace enough for this wonderful opportunity, and truly appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone left during the week. I am always amazed at the talent I get to feature on a daily basis, so when Joy Thigpen and Jose Villa recently collaborated I couldn’t resist ending my week here on Design Sponge with some images from their time together. Joy was also kind enough to send over a few details behind the shoot…
A few weeks ago I was so giddy to receive a call from none other than Jose Villa who was headed to my side of the continent and wanted to put together a little engagement-style shoot with me. Just for fun! We wanted to keep it laidback and I wanted to create an environment for it (of course) but I wanted it to be the kind of thing that someone could easily do for real and without breaking the bank. With the kind of love that surrounds an engagement, simple beauty and a little free-spirited fun are sometimes all you need. And achingly beautiful photography doesn’t hurt either. :)
