After weeks of planning and multiple rescheduling, a group of 16 amazing people gathered together for a photoshoot on Saturday, October 3rd. Even though it was dark and gloomy outside, we managed to keep the mood light and cheerful indoors. Mind you, the first scheduled date was postponed due to the weather. I was not letting a little ol’ hurricane stop it this time.
I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I first planned this shoot. I’m definitely a creature of habit because I always bite off more than I can chew, but somehow it all came together.
11 models total; 2 brides, 2 grooms, 5 bridesmaids, 1 ring bearer, & 1 flower girl. All of which I designed and made new accessories for every single model. I didn’t even think twice about doing it, which either means I’m crazy or extremely passionate about my work.
Originally the shoot was supposed to be outside so that we could capture the historic Brooklyn Bridge shot in Dumbo. Like I said earlier, mother nature wasn’t cooperating. So I sucked it up, gathered whatever decor I could from my apartment and my friends, made some wall hangings, and voila! Wedding photoshoot decor.
The bouquets that the girls are holding were also made/arranged by myself. I took a trip to the flower district the week prior and bought a ton of silk flowers. I’m glad I did because I wouldn’t have had the time to arrange fresh flowers the morning of. Between decorating the room, styling the hair, styling the models, and directing the shoot I had barely anytime to think.
However, this day would not have happened without the talented individuals who shot the photos, applied the beautiful makeup (with next to no breaks! sorry for the marathon!), and lets not forget the models. You were all outstanding and I can not thank you enough! I seriously can’t. Another big thank you to Patty who started the day at 9:30 running around and of course helping me immensely. All of the behind the scenes photos can be viewed in the gallery to the right. I cannot wait to launch the new accessories that were used for this shoot! Stay tuned, because “Vintage Romance” is launching soon!
