By the looks of our BedVoyage photoshoot, the whole thing looks like would it be a breeze to pull off, right? The truth is that a huge amount of work goes into the planning of each photoshoot. The styling, the set up, the teardown, accessories, the photographer the model, it goes on and on. To prepare behind the scenes for a BedVoyage photoshoot we start weeks before. We come up with ideas and concepts as well as a ‘shot list’ for the photographer. Then off to shop for dozens of accessories: rugs, candles, flowers, pillows, and tables and then we have to fit them all into our vehicles to head to the offsite location.
What is Go Green in Your Bed about?
We photographed our new Decorative Pillows made exclusively for Amazon, among many other products, over a period of three days in July. We also created some fresh new looks for our best sellers. The theme of the shoot was “GO GREEN IN YOUR BED” inspired by our newly trademarked slogan. Our goal was to convey a luxurious, yet natural feel, which we believe best represents our brand. The weather was crazy and we dodged windstorms and the possibility of rain. We had to quickly change our timing per location to take advantage of the light and weather. This kept everyone on their toes! Luckily our team was made up of incredibly talented and fun people. This included our photographer, CEO, assistants, and several members of the BedVoyage Team.
We hope you enjoy learning about BedVoyage Photoshoot as much as we enjoy doing them!
I know it may look easy when you see the amazing final photos. But behind the camera, it can look like the biggest mess as we stockpile various accessories, ironing boards, linens and lots of coffee! Ready to pull into any shot as needed.
The process of putting it all together is an enormous task! We wanted to share a peek into our upcoming image release and give you some inspiration to “GO GREEN IN YOUR BED!” What looks like a beautiful bed in final photos is just an Aero bed on anything level we could elevate it on! We used our Bed Sheets, Duvet Covers, Coverlets, Euro Shams, Standard Shams and Decorative Pillows. You can find any of our products at our BedVoyage store.
The team chats and comes up with the final game plan, because we need to create the ‘look’ with accessories. Then bamboo linens are all ironed, smoothed out and layered, but with everyone having an idea of how it should go together!
The final touches to the draperies, candles, pillows and we pull the look together. It is a lot of work, but so much fun.
And Voila! The perfect Bed… Behind the Scenes of a BedVoyage Photoshoot
And then the photographer does his magic and its ‘cozy glamping on a stormy night!” We had so much fun setting up a pop up tent and then turning it into a very glamourous bed.
Then before the flash is barely finished, its all torn down and folded up and we move on to the next image! Are you tired yet from hearing about all of the work? We got dozens of absolutely amazing photos but were completely exhausted. Watch for our next blog for more sneak peeks from Behind the Scenes of a BedVoyage Photoshoot!
