Inspiration behind the shoot (from Susannah VanDyke): The inspiration for this shoot originated when Lukas & I were at Fishy Finds, and we found an old quilt, a bushel, and an old straw hat. Immediately I envisioned a cool bushel-of-apples type shoot. A few weeks later, Lukas found an adorable vintage lace wedding dress online. He then started imagining a story from Johny Appleseed- What if there had been a Mrs. Appleseed?! Lukas did some research online and found out that the real Johnny Appleseed had traveled a great distance to propose to a woman he loved—only to find that he was a day late; she had just accepted the proposal of another. We imagined that Johnny went on to find his true love and the Mrs. Johny Appleseed shoot took off from there!
