Styled Bridal Shoot - Oct. 21 Durham, NC

  Hi everyone! Very exciting news! I am  finally posting my very first ever styled shoot!! I have been trying for over a year to get together a styled shoot for myself and I couldn't be happier with the results.Getting a chance to gather elements from all your favorite weddings and getting to work with other vendors is always exciting and fun. I was wanting to do a styled shoot that had a classic feel with a Bohemian flare. Huge shout-out to Tre Bella Bridal for providing the dress (styled by Pronovias) and for also making the stunning bouquet! Also to Make Up for Your Day located in Raleigh, North Carolina for the hair and make up. Lastly, to Olivia who did a wonderful job modeling I am already in the works of assembling another styled shoot, but bigger and better!! Stay tuned everyone (:

Shannon's High Fashion Session - Fisher Park, Greensboro NC (color)

  Shannon_blog_003

A few weeks ago I got the pleasure of photographing Shannon for a high fashion session and I am so happy withe results! I always love shooting at fisher park and it was the perfect summer day for it, Shannon just GLOWED under that sun and shined in every image! I love how the first half, with her white dress and her hair (which I did) had a totally different feel than the ones with her in the crop top and high waisted shorts. The pears were a nice touch that my assistant thought would add something unique to the shoot and I liked it a lot.  We went from soft and dreamy to a more commercial feel. Shannon did a wonderful job and I am sure loving all my session this summer.

What I love about this shoot is all the colors involved. I love embracing the greens in a photograph and manipulating them some in post to create a more dreamy, film like look. Also enhancing the colors to make the photograph look warmer and more summer like. I love the colors the pears added and how it made the model stand out. However, photographing in an all green setting can get tricky with color bounce--green bounces off the leaves and onto the skin and creates a terrible color cast in the photo--which can be fixed in post!

Ashley Model Session // Greensboro NC - Midkiff Farm

  Ashley_model_blog_004

Ashley is one of my favorite models to photograph! This was my third time shooting with her, I first photographed her for my spring portfolio for school where I had a 70s vogue theme going on (hopefully I'll get around to posting those photos too!) Anyways, I was dying to have another session with her so we headed out to one of my favorite places to shoot and went with it, with very little prep. It was rough start trying to figure out what style to go for but once we got into the swing of it we had a lot of fun shooting! Ashley is such a gorgeous girl and is a natural in front of the camera! I'm hoping next time we get to work together we will do something more commercial and edgy!
