A great photo shoot requires teamwork. Lots of it! Every single person has to do their part to make sure every detail comes together to create compelling images that will make the participants proud.
Of course, it all starts with a strong vision.
When I approached a local bridal salon about providing art for her walls, I was pleased by her enthusiastic response. We met to go over the accessories, gowns, and other pieces that would capture the essence of vintage glamour…with an edge.
I did some research to find retro images, vintage glamour images, paintings, and fashion images that captured elements I wanted to incorporate in our shoot. We would have 3 models and I wanted a different look/feel for each–looks that would speak to the unique beauty of each model involved.
Kelly Stanger of GlamMeUpNY.com–a Long Island’s Best nominee for the third year in a row–partnered with me in creating a classic vintage look brought modern for each of the models and was a total trooper throughout the shoot pitching in wherever needed and taming the wild beasts that are my temperamental fog machines! (Thank you Kelly!!!)
And while we haven’t yet presented the images to the salon owner, I thought I’d share a few behind the scenes shots (please excuse the cell phone low res quality images).
And here’s a teaser!
More images to come soon….
May you have a great week ahead!
