Hello beautiful people! I had the honor of talking to Allison Pheleita of A. Pheleita Photography and got the inside scoop on her “Gemy Gowns” photoshoot.
First and foremost, not only has Sacramento based Allison Pheleita been making her mark as a photographer, you can also add model and photo retoucher to the list of why she’s the definition of GOALS. With Allison’s take on natural light and creative photography, it gives her photos this massive appeal and really sets her work to another level. Her specialties have grown to include fashion, editorials, beauty, and lifestyle. In other words, everything we could have only hope for!
For this shoot, Allison collaborated with Coachellove, a local jewelry company, to create their new line. The amazing gowns were done by LA designer, Gemy Maalouf, that came into place and became the whole inspiration and concept. After getting the team together who consisted of Leah Morris Balsamo with JE Models, Jasmine Cardenas for MUA, Angel Garcia for hair, Shannon Cosgrove-Rivas of Flourish Flowers, they were ready to start making art.
Shooting local at the Warehouse Artist Lofts here in Sacramento, they played with the different accents of colors and spaces within the loft for each of the dresses. You can definitely see how the backgrounds fit each gown as the green lace gown fit with the soft green wall and the futuristic mural went hand in hand with the black high slit lace gown. The studio space with the unique shade of blue complements the long red laced gown so well and the flower arrangements made such a nice touch.
