CONCEPT AND SETTING UP
The concept was an editorial bridal fashion shoot using all-natural light. The set-ups varied. I used two black/white v-flats to bounce the light around my studio, and a Lastolite scrim to soften the light coming through the huge windows in the space.
SHOOTING TETHEREDTethering on this shoot was crucial. It was important that hair and makeup see exactly how their visions were being documented, and it’s not easy to have everyone gather around the LCD screen of my camera. We also wanted to make sure the dress was being shown off properly since the bridal shoot is so much about the dress.
The biggest challenge was making sure everyone on set was pleased. When you have a huge team of collaborators, everyone is an art director. Everyone needed to be happy with how their work was represented, and I also had to be happy with the final results photographically.
