We had the privilege of taking Anthropologie to Savannah, GA for a fun shoot last spring. Photographer Bettina Lewin and the rest of the team took full advantage of the beautiful backdrop of historic Savannah and Tybee Island to create a set of ethereal images and a web video for the brand.
The locations were beautiful- from the shady tree-lined streets, to the cute cafes, to the faded grandeur of the haunted mansions- Savannah delivered. We shot in some "famous" local haunts as well- Back in the Day Bakery and The Paris Market both provided great ambience for the shots- and snacks- for our crew.
Our whole team was consistently impressed with 3 things- the locations, the food, and the nice people that seemed to grow on trees. Everywhere we went, people we courteous, curious, friendly, and accommodating. We ate at several amazing restaurants, and loved them all. A special shout out to The Olde Pink House, an historic Savannah restaurant, that was kind enough to let us shoot (as well as eat) there. Southern Hospitality at its finest! That goes for our local vendors as well- our local PA's, rental houses, caterers and car services were all out of this world, and a pleasure to work with. All in all, we can't say enough about how convenient, pleasant, and production-friendly it was down there. Savannah, we will be back soon!
