We wanted to tell a modern gothic love story with the help of local creatives from Oakland, CA. Using both a contemporary eatery and a 19th century cemetery as our backdrops, we combined a brooding color palette, heavy shadows, soft lace, and other symbols of opulence inspired by the Dutch renaissance to create a warm but dramatic mood. We wanted the shoot to capture the beauty of a slightly darker side of romance, luxury, and abundance using the crafts and style of modern-day makers from our local community.
