Whenever I put together a shoot, I usually have a loose concept in mind. It almost always changes once I start working. When I met Beata at her apartment for this shoot we were going through her clothes when she showed me this vintage dress. It was the dress her mother was wearing the first time she met her late father. I had her try it on and we both knew it was perfect. She lives in a historic apartment in the Gaslight part of Clifton so we just roamed around her neighborhood. Everything fell together wonderfully.
Inspired by a desire to push myself creatively, many nights admiring the rocknroll bride.com, and the photography in FOAM magazine I set up this rock and roll themed photo session with Jeremy and Ashley. I wanted to create something edgy and fun. I needed to create something that I feel would really represent my personality and the type of photography I love, which is still hard for me to define through words. :)
Jeremy is a good friend of mine, he has a great sense of style. I knew he would be perfect for the shoot. I asked to see if his friend Ashley, who is a hair stylist at Pinnokios Salon in Northside, would be willing to be my "bride". She is gorgeous, and has the tattooed look I was going for. We planned the session so that we would be out during that magic hour before the sun sets. Beautiful. I am so happy with the way these turned out!
