Monet-Inspired Enchantment at The Capen House

Welcome to The Capen House

Tucked away in the scenic enclave of Winter Park, Florida, The Capen House recently served as a canvas for a styled shoot that was nothing short of a painterly dream. We were inspired by the masterpieces of Claude Monet. We ventured to intertwine the delicate whispers of Impressionistic art with the robust charm of Florida’s own lush vistas. Our concept? A secret garden infused with all the mystique and color play that Monet himself revered.

The Venue: A Floridian Secret Garden

The Capen House is situated within the verdant Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens. The venue offers an escape into old-world allure surrounded by modern Floridian landscapes. For this styled shoot, the goal was to capture the ethereal beauty of Monet’s Giverny through the lens of Central Florida’s bountiful nature, making use of the stunning lakeside views and the historic architecture that The Capen House is renowned for.

Design Elements: Monet Comes to Life

The heart of our design was rooted in bringing an Impressionist painting to life. To achieve this, soft pastel floral arrangements were juxtaposed with vibrant greenery, creating a dynamic yet harmonious visual feast reminiscent of Monet’s garden scenes. Every detail, from the textured linens to the carefully chosen color palette of greens, blues, and pinks, was meant to evoke the sensation of walking through an Impressionist painting.

Photographic Vision: Capturing Light and Color

Emphasizing Monet’s passion for light and color, the photography aimed to capture the essence of the styled shoot through a soft, luminous approach. The natural light of the Florida sun provided a perfect backdrop. It highlighted textures and colors and casting gentle shadows that added depth and intrigue to each frame. Our photographer used a mixture of close-up shots to capture intricate details and wider shots that encapsulated the full scope of the scenic setup.

Reflections of the Day

As the day drew to a close, with the sun casting its final golden glow over The Capen House, it was a moment to reflect on the incredible journey of bringing a Monet-inspired vision to life. This enchanting styled shoot was only made possible through the collaboration, talent, and passion of a dedicated creative team. From florists who crafted blooms into art, to stylists who wove together fabric and light, every contribution was invaluable.

The photographer captured not just images, but the essence of a moment frozen in time, reflective of Monet’s own quest to capture the fleeting light. And to The Capen House, for providing the perfect canvas, rich with history and beauty, a heartfelt thank you.

Each member of the creative team brought a unique vision and skill set, coming together to create something truly special. It was a collaboration that underscored the power of unity in creativity. And the remarkable beauty that can be achieved when diverse talents converge with a shared goal.

So, to every single person involved in this wonderful project, thank you. Thank you for sharing your artistry, your dedication, and your passion. This styled shoot was a testament to the magic that happens when we come together, inspired by the past to create something anew. Here’s to more beautiful creations in the future.
