We did a thing, a very cool thing, a Bridal Shoot at Isla Del Sol Yacht and Country Club. Okay, I hate "Stylized Shoots" and this technically isn't one. A Stylized shoot is pretty much a fairy tale, a unique rendering of a space with props, decorations, hired models, etc in an attempt to make a "perfect" wedding scene or a very "stylized" wedding situation. What we did was something we COULD actually do at a wedding, if given time to do it. Derica and I have been bickering about the definition of "Stylized Shoot" vs "A shoot". Anyway, here's the gist of what happened!
We got some new toys. Lights, flashes, modifiers, triggers, etc. All geeky photographer stuff. We wanted to play, and test it out, but mostly I wanted to play. I never get to play anymore, and honestly I think when an artist gets to experiment with no expectations of producing ANYTHING, we get to try things we normally wouldn't do at a wedding. Well, I loved it. Even though it rained. It was awesome, and we're going to do this more often! Well, maybe when it gets cooler and not so rainy.
We did a bit of video of the session and put together a little video on Youtube, so if you're interested, take a look:
I'd like to give a shout out to some special people who made this possible!
Melissa Rowjohn for being a lovely model!
Dave and Deb Rivard who came down to help out!
