Sneak-Peek | Behind-The-Scenes
As some of you may know I will be one of the photographers working the The NotWedding Atlanta event this year alongside Whitney Huynh of Whitney Huynh Photography. One of the perks of this awesome opportunity, is that each of us has to conceptualize and plan a pre-event styled shoot using some of the other amazing vendors, as well as the chosen couple.
My concept was quite simple; after a year of being immersed in the industry, I wanted to step out of the box and do something completely different from our norm. The array of talented wedding vendors in this town is amazing, however it feels as if we are rarely allowed to break out and do something out of the ordinary…this is what we set out to do!
My inspiration came from Andy Warhol’s muse, Edie Sedgewick, or as he liked to call her, “The Queen of the Factory”. She herself was incredibly beautiful amidst the hardship and chaos that seemed to constantly surround her. So, my approach was to juxtapose a beautifully elegant bride with the contrast and harsh surroundings of a condemned warehouse space and use them both to create a classy, and above all sexy set of images. This was to be a fashion bridal shoot with a taste of edgy-ness and modern couture.
I couldn’t be happier with the results from the shoot and we are working hard to try to get them published! It’s a rare thing for me to not share images I’m super psyched about right away, so I at least wanted to give everyone a brief glimpse of the behind-the-scenes and a teaser (one of my favorites) from the day. I promise there will be more coming soon!!!
