Kurt Boomers workshop in Santa Ynez, CA

I was lucky this year and had an opportunity to go to an incredible workshop hosted by super talented Kurt Boomer had his team in Santa Ynez, CA

The workshop was hosted at a beautiful Sunstone Vineyard villa in Santa Ynez, California. The Villa, is constructed entirely from remains of buildings torn down and imported from old Tuscany Italy. it was such a beautiful scenery to take

pictures no matter where you looked. I had a pleasure to stay 2 nights at the villa in their gorgeous stone rooms. The Sunstone venue is a dream. I’m so lucky to have been a part of this gathering of incredible talent and I

am thankful to Kurt Boomer for sharing his knowledge and experience with us.

CA Workshop Jeremy Chou – Part 2

invitationtable_landscape

This is the second part of my Jeremy Chou Workshop in California – which I attended in the spring. This second set of images focuses on a different female model and has also been styled as a bridal shoot. I particularly love the invitation table for this stylized shoot and thought all those involved on it were fabulous to work with.

The moody vibe is continued into this set of images (you can check out part 1 here) and the setting lends to this through The Folly Estates beautifully mysterious atmosphere and the colors chosen for the shoot; dark purples and black lace accent the feminine nature of bridal photography, injecting a great sense of the unique into this one of a kind shoot.

CA Workshop Jeremy Chou

DSC_3102

This Spring, I attended the Jeremy Chou Workshop set in the unique private estate; Folly Estate, which you can find in Capitrano Beach, Orange County. This unique private residence made the perfect setting for a very individual bridal shoot and is also used as the back drop for small wedding receptions and intimate gatherings.

I was extremely happy to be part of the workshop and we were truly lucky to get access to this beautiful venue! All of the vendors and stylists were amazing and we had a wonderful day on this shoot.
The results are relatively unique in the world of bridal photography; with a moody edge and lots of heat infused into the images. The use of black clothing and accessories vamps up our bride before white muslin and lace soften here once more for boudoir styled shots. I’m very proud of how these shots turned out and glad to be sharing them with you all here!

Caroline Tran 2014 Propel

Modern Wedding Invitation

Last year I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Caroline Tran 2014 Propel for a high fashion bridal shoot. Caroline Tran is a rising star in the artistic world – she is highly talented and rightly famous for her beautiful photography. Getting the opportunity to shoot alongside Caroline, and the other photographers taking part, was something I had been looking forward to for quite some time.

The color schemes laid out for this shoot were far from traditional bridal fare; burnt oranges, bright pinks and gorgeous greens come together to create some serious wow factor. The colors flow through both gown and table dressings unifying the whole, with the natural background of foliage softening the overall result.

Whilst outwardly modern, the scheme still obviously depicts a classical scene with a truly romantic atmosphere. Reminiscent of fairy tales as well as rebellions this scheme walks the fine line between sass and beauty in perfect fashion.

I had a great time on this shoot and really benefited from the guidance of Caroline alongside the support of other vendors. I couldn’t be happier with the results and hope you’ll agree!
