Through A Glass Darkly: a different kind of bridal fashion shoot..

a different kind of bridal fashion shoot…

For this story I wanted to create a different kind of bridal fashion shoot.  Something with an eye for the more editorial side of wedding photography, with a darker and edgier feel.  When it comes to bridal shoots we’re all very accustomed to seeing bright, beautiful shots of brides tripping through sunny fields (holding the odd balloon here and there) so myself, and Hannah Gooch — who did an amazing job of styling the shoot — decided that it would be interesting to do something a little different.  These are much moodier bridal images than you’ll see elsewhere.  In fact anywhere!  We tried to get these shots into magazines, but it seems they’re too fashion for the bridal magazines and too bridal for the fashion magazines.

Story of my life!  Always the square peg in the round hole. ;-)
