This is the second bridals done at the beautiful Belle Victorian Gardens outside of Spokane. Truly one of the most spectacular wedding venues in the country! And a beautiful, beautiful bride!
Here are a few previews of the lovely Irene:
I spent an incredible week in Prague – 10 sessions and just an amazing array of inspiring locations. Here’s a small peek from the Czech Republic!
I was very fortunate to shoot bridals for the lovely Cari. Her personality and spirit was inspiring and whether we were setting up a full lighting rig in a dark alley or playing between the columns of an historic turn of the century theater, she gave us her very best!
Thanks Cari – and congratulations!
This is the lovely Miia, who celebrated her wedding only a week earlier. Miia was kind enough to schedule her bridals after the wedding, when we could have a relaxed day, with no wedding day pressures, making the most beautiful images possible.
Miia is quite lovely and statuesque and used make up artist Cemille Nismetdin to create a very lovely 1960s Bardot type of style. I enjoyed framing her figure against the variety of architectural elements at the location. I used more environmental framing than usual but I think it just worked so beautifully for her. And, of course, I appreciate that we were able to use a location well outside of the norm in Helsinki and really make the most of it.
All but the head shots were taken in natural light, using water as the main lighting source. The beauty shots made use of a large white reflector in Miia’s lap to lift the shadows for a glowing glamor type of beauty portrait.
I count myself so very fortunate in having a lovely autumn day in which to shoot, a location all to ourselves, and the natural beauty of Finland framing a beautiful Finnish bride.
Here are the first images From a recent wedding in the lovely city of Kirkkonummi.
