Luxe Glam Bridal Fashion Photo Shoot

The longer I pursue a creative career, the more I am struck by the need to create art for myself simply because I am inspired to do so. When running a creative business it is so easy to get caught up in the day to day of business tasks and fill my calendar with only client projects (because, let’s be honest, that’s what pays the bills). But to truly evolve as artists, I believe we need to carve out the time to create art for ourselves, to try new things (and maybe fail), and to push ourselves and our artistry. Then we can return to our client work reinvigorated and hopefully as better artists.

That is what this shoot was for me — a chance to try something new. And a chance to collaborate. I created this shoot with my hairstylist, Jessa Trefethen, of Prodigy Salon. If you don’t know, I used to work as a hairstylist years ago, so I’m pretty particular about who does my hair. And this girl is the absolute best. She’s the artistic director for the salon and she is also quite a savvy boss lady. We had talked for sometime about collaborating on a shoot and when my schedule opened after the holidays we both jumped at the opportunity to work together. Jessa brought on some other talented members of her team for hair and makeup design — and she also found all of our gorgeous models.

We were very excited to collaborate with Danelle’s Bridal here in Colorado Springs for wardrobe. I had been swooning over their collection on Instagram for quite a while and was so excited when they responded to my request to feature some of their gowns in this shoot. When Jessa and I toured the salon and met with Danelle, herself, we were thrilled with her gorgeous selection of glamorous gowns and knew they would perfectly match our vision.

Speaking of vision, for this shoot I was inspired by the baroque portraits I studied in art school. Specifically, I love how the artists played with dramatic light and colors, and their attention to textiles and details. I wanted to emulate that in my photographs. I used my lighting to draw attention to the lace and beading of the gowns in a similar fashion. Another goal was to create glamour, drama and movement in the images. And I really think we captured that feeling.

A huge thanks to all involved! Be sure to scroll to the very end so you see all of our gorgeous models and looks.
