2019 has come to a close and we are looking forward to the year ahead. Here at 1st Option we have had a very busy start to the year, but that doesn’t stop us having a look back with fond memories of our favourite shoots from 2019. With so many highlights, it was hard to pick just 5 to show you all, but with the help of a team chat, we’ve managed to narrow it down.
Our first highlight to show you all is Makeup Guru and all-round Wonder Women Charlotte Tilbury. Shooting a brand new look at our dream location Carlton House, Charlotte’s whole shoot was inspired by her beautiful nieces, Bella and Sofia. Carlton House was the perfect location with its infamous pink sofa and quirky furniture.
Next, we go to MoStack’s and Stormzy’s single ‘Shine Girl’ which made it into the UK’s top 20 singles chart 3 weeks running. Shot at our location Blackwood House, with a simple but modern interior and bundles of natural light, it was an obvious pick.
We will never get enough of London icon Kate Moss! We’ve been lucky enough to have Kate shoot at a couple of our locations over the year but this was our personal favourite! Shot with British Vogue, Kate invited some famous friends over for a home cooked roast, the best kind. As you can see in the video, Lyca has that homely feel with its Victorian features mixed in with the modern day living space.
And now we’re kicking it back in style with PUMA. Shot at our location, The School Space. We absolutely love the chilled vibes and style that ooze from this shoot. School Space is a unique space in North East London and is perfect for that school-based shoot with its sports hall and astroturf.
Last but by no means least is Love Island’s Class of 2019 couple Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard, looking like love’s young dream. As one of the two remaining couples still together from this year’s Love Island, we were excited to see they are now ‘officially’ a couple in Octobers OK Magazine. Their beautiful shoot was at our location Albion. With a charming neutral interior, it is the perfect shoot location for both home and studio, due to its separate studio at the end of the garden.
