Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone. I’m guessing that most other bloggers are guilty of this little switcheroo too. My shoots happen in the morning when I have the best light in my kitchen. And while this might be prime mimosa time, it’s usually not practical to drink the drinks you need to pour for your styled shoot. So while I may use a higher end brand in some of the photos (La Marca is only $10 at Costco so I guess it isn’t really higher end – but it super yummy and I actually like to drink it) the bottle is not actually opened. Instead, I swap out a less expensive one (in this case about $5) to use in the detail shots because then I feel better pouring it out. What are your tricks?
