Red Riding Hood, “In the Forest, Hide & Seek”

Remember the super cool competition we were running this year at the wedding expo, "Win an engagement shoot styled by Elephantshoe and photographed by Blackframe Photography"?

Well, Natasha & Chris were the lucky winners of the prize with their killer idea centered around the fairytale Red Riding Hood. We absolutely loved putting together the concepts and styling for each shot with our besties Blackframe. 

RED "Natasha" is an incredible makeup artist & THE WOLF "Chris" is a talented film Director, they will be saying I do on the 23rd of March 2013. We all met up early one Sunday morning in Newtown Johannesburg to begin this unbelievable shoot. Take a look here.

ONCE UPON A TIME . . .

There was a girl who lived near the forest. Whenever she went out she wore a red riding cloak and everyone called her Little Red Riding Hood.

“SO THEY PACKED A NICE BASKET FOR LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD TO TAKE TO HER GRANDMOTHER”

“DON’T DAWDLE ALONG THE WAY AND PLEASE DON’T TALK TO STRANGERS!  THE WOODS ARE DANGEROUS”

“SHE DIDN’T NOTICE A DARK SHADOW APPROACHING OUT OF THE FOREST BEHIND HER...”

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUT HERE, LITTLE GIRL?” THE WOLF ASKED IN A VOICE AS FRIENDLY AS HE COULD MUSTER”

“LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD NOTICED SOME LOVELY FLOWERS IN THE WOODS, SHE FORGOT HER PROMISE TO HER MOTHER.  SHE PICKED A FEW”

“DON’T WORRY, MOMMY,” SAID LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, “I’LL BE CAREFUL.”
