INSPIRED :: Dessert Decadence Print Shoot

Warning: don’t read this post if you’re hungry! These images come from one our favorite {tasty} print shoots in recent memory. It’s for the current gorgeous {really, dreamy and heavenly!} issue of Seattle Met Bride and Groom Magazine and it was utterly delicious to work on. This piece was a three-part spread so we’ll be sharing more details soon. The first piece focused on decadent salty and savory elements that can quiz the palate and appease several senses. We collaborated with several talented bakeries and the always amazing Dennis Wise to put a fresh spin on what’s become the traditional dessert buffet spread. We used accents of leafy greenery, dried citrus and pink Himalayan sea salt to anchor this towering fromage cake.

    I didn’t head your warning and I’m drooling all over my phone! This looks fantastic. I just love the citrus and leafy greens so much! Can’t wait to see the rest.
