Every year our local lifestyle magazine The Voice-Tribune creates a bridal fashion editorial for the newest trends in the wedding world. The article can be found here: https://voice-tribune.com/featured-posts/the-picture-of-beauty/ and at the bottom of this post is all the final images used in the publication. I was fortunate to photograph this years editorial at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Ky.
The Speed Art Museum is one of Louisville's art museums with a variety of exhibits and several rotating modern art exhibits. The general feel and vibe of the shoot was moody and painterly. The idea was to create a set of images that kinda mimicked the old century paintings. To achieve a sort of painterly look, I stuck to one main key light and either a fill light with a reflector or another strobe. In post processing these images I added some cool blues into the shadows and warmth into the mid-tones to create a separation of subject and background with color.
All the dresses we shot we all elegant and beautiful. We had two models, a hair/makeup team, a stylist, and art director to help while on set. I also had my friend Mike Vance (TheMikeVance.com, he's a killer commercial director) help out with lighting and shooting some BTS video.
