American Horror Story Styled Photoshoot in Arizona

Last year, I put together a styled shoot drawing inspiration from one of my favorite shows ever: American Horror Story.

I have had the biggest crush on Evan Peters since Asylum and have basically been waiting for inspiration to hit in order to create some sort of styled shoot as an ode to him.

I got superrrr lucky and found a girl I went to high school with who I swear looks so much like Violet, and I just had to ask if she and her boyfriend would model for me. Thankfully, she so kindly accepted my invitation. After that, I worked up the courage to wrangle other vendors to help me out and the rest is history.

Since we did this shoot in October last year, you can probably smell alllll the fall vibes from your phone screen.

There’s a little fall fashion here, vintage accents in decor there, and just an all around moody aesthetic.

So there we have it! Tate and Violet, their unrequited love, brain cake from Murder House, and Coven witches to sass up the evening equals a completed vision.

In the spirit of the newest season Apocalypse with Tate and Violet reconciling their love in episode 5 thanks to Madison Montgomery, I bring you… last year’s inspiration.
