A Year of Flowers Pt. 2: February's Iris, Race + Religious, New Orleans, LA

It's official! Sonia Savio Photography has a series on Green Wedding Shoes! This month's birth flower is the iris. How lucky did I get with my amazing collaboration with Destiny Pinson, Logan Doerries and Race + Religious?!
This is going to be an exciting year, and I hope y'all will join me for the ride! This romantic shoot was such a fun little twist of modern vintage, which Race + Religious as a venue is all about. And how perfect is it that the iris is the emblem for the fleur de lis, and that the month of February is also the month of Mardi Gras? I do love my crescent city of New Orleans and how, just like the iris, it has resilience and frailty at the same time. Please, enjoy some additional images to the collection Green Wedding Shoes picked out, but do make sure to go check out GWS for more history on the Iris!
Man, these shoots have made me fall in love with flowers in a way that I never expected...
