Swan Lake

I based our shoot around the fairytale of Swan Lake, Swan Lake is about a prince named Siegfried. He falls in love with the Swan princess, Odette. She is a swan by day, but a young woman at night. She is under a magic spell that can only be broken by a man who will make a promise to love her for all time.

To begin, we chose a lake in the Highlands of Scotland as our location because this particular location combines deep woods left untouched and the striking lake.

For our princess we wanted a fresh and youthful look so the makeup was kept minimal. For her make-up, we chose a natural and understated look in order to accentuate her eyes. Her hair was kept natural flowing for a look that was innocent and naturally beautiful. We chose an Enzoani dress from Opus Couture because this designer’s style was young, with full tulle soft dresses and designs are delicate and graceful and kept with our fairytale look. The headpiece is by Scotland’s award winning headpiece designer Corrine Smith.
