Behind the Scenes: Amagansett
We're just beginning to pack our bags for summer getaways, but our photography team is already on location with the new season in mind. At the end of April, the team took a week-long trip to the tiny town of Amagansett, New York to shoot our summer living collection of furniture, fire pits, and more outdoor favorites. Found in 1680, this seaside hamlet near the town of East Hampton is home to rugged, rocky beaches lined with tall dunes and mossy pine groves. The team shares a few of their highlights from the week, below.
"I loved exploring the natural dunes, which were filled with lichen-covered pine trees, grasses, brush, and reindeer moss." - Alli M., Senior Stylist
"The weather was rainy and foggy for most of the week, which lent the photos a different aesthetic from our previous summertime shoots." - Katie H., Photographer
"A sunrise shoot on the beach was one of my favorite moments from the week. It's always tough to get up before dawn, but it also creates a sense of camaraderie within the team that's really special. At the start of the foggy morning, we all tried to avoid getting our shoes wet on the beach. By the end of the shoot, however, all of our shoes were completely soaked. We just had to laugh about it! We also shot a clam bake for dinner one night, and it was really fun to eat the leftovers!" - Melissa M., Web Merchandiser
"Like Alli, I really loved exploring the landscape. There was so much reindeer moss everywhere, and it was amazing to see it grow naturally. My favorite days were the ones we spent in Montauk. Even though the weather was gloomy, the view was beautiful -- there were millions of smooth rocks far as you could see. On the last day of the shoot we went to Napeague Beach, which was like being on another planet. The view of the ocean from the high, rolling dunes was incredible. We spent some time walking the beach to gather driftwood, shells, moss, and more natural beauties." - Adelyn D., Stylist
