Stela 9: On Location

A little sneak peek into behind the scenes of Stela 9’s two upcoming collections for Holiday & Resort  >>Wild Heart<< and >>Welcome to the Jungle<<  Both collections feature the gorgeous Cali girl, Corina Brown of Wild and Free Jewelry.

The Wild Heart collection was shot in our home base of Antigua. Our first location was at the enchanting ‘Las Capuchinas’ a church and convent ruin. This romantic ruin made the perfect setting for our Wild Heart collection. Day 2 of shooting in Antigua took a dark spin. Our location was in a local cemetery, which was actually the most beautiful cemetery I have ever been to. Cemeteries usually make me feel uneasy and queasy, but this particular cemetery was not eerie or dark, it was full of pure white with a mix of bold colorful flowers. This cemetery gave me the vibe that the dead are being celebrated and not mourned, something I notice that is different to our stateside traditions.

Stela 9’s Welcome to the Jungle collection was shot in Livingston and Rio Dulce. Check out my prior blog post to take in the beauty of Guatemala’s caribbean coast. In Rio Dulce we were on location in the small jungle hideaway of El Hotelito Perdido. This was absolutely the most perfect setting to showcase the Into the Jungle collection. We took so many amazing shots for both collections, scroll down for some behind the scenes photos. Both look books will be featured on Stela9.com in the coming months. Our crew had a blast shooting both collections and made everyday an adventure!
