The Collaboration :: Vintage Wedding Dresses :: Hamilton Wedding Photographer

For those of you who have been watching the excitement on Facebook or Instagram a few weeks back a bunch of us got together and shot a vintage wedding dress shoot!

It was organized by me but after that I just let everyone do their thang, and these are the gorgeous results!

The only drawback was that there were TOO many photos…

 

Below are two installments of four dresses.  I’ll post the other half on Friday!  Stay tuned…

And check out what Jane & Hollie of White Elephant are saying about the shoot here at their blog.

 

And I want to show the credits here and below–so you don’t miss it!

A sweetheart neckline for a sweetheart.  Wedding dresses don’t have to be white.

They should sometimes be pink.

Off-Camera Flash (OCF) with Amanda :: 270 Sherman :: Tutorial Photo Shoot

Hey!

I know you, right?  I think we hung out once…but it’s been a while.  Hope you haven’t forgotten about me!

For the month of March I was the Monthly Mentor on the Chic Critique Forum–and as such I needed to create and share a video about an area of my expertise.  Now, while I do not call myself an expert at off-camera flash (OCF), I am an expert at PARTS of it.   So the tutorial was about the basics of this really fun and challenging skill.

Amanda was my model for the shoot–and was also being filmed at the same time for the video footage–thanks to Mark Van Noord of Airborne Video Productions.I can’t show you the footage–because you need to be a member of the forum to see it :)   There are perks to being a member!

*All of the shots that are side-by-side (the diptychs), are SOOC, or straight out of camera–except for straightening.  I’m a crooked shooter!*   If you want to know specifics about the images–ask me in the comments.  Most of the images were shot using different OCF techniques and equipment.

Anyway–I think I only released ONE sneak peek from this session–so here are my favourites! Enjoy!
