a vintage wedding shoot, part one


These photos were taken behind the scenes of a recent vintage wedding shoot with my point-and-shoot film camera. I worked with the lovely photographer Danica Suskin and the amazing stylist Angel Phillips (who styled the BUST photo shoot). We borrowed an amazing 1950's peach lace dress from vintage shop Ver Unica and added my brown velvet heels and a vintage fascinator. We took over the shop for a few hours, trying on everything in the store, spraying lots of hairspray, and taking silly photos of each other. And then we finally made our way to City Hall (amidst lots of car honking and cries of "Congratulations!") where we were followed by tourists capturing every moment on their cellphones. I guess I pulled off the blushing bride bit pretty convincingly, although I'm sure more than one person wondered where the groom had disappeared to! All I can say is that if you ever want to attract a lot of attention just walk around with a bunch of balloons. Preferably near a City Hall.

The actual photos from the shoot are coming soon, there are so many!

the balloon pictures are beautiful, but the one where you're having your hair curled is so pretty and sweet.

That looks like so much fun, and cheers to you for using a film camera. I don't use my film camera anymore and I think it might be time to bust it out.
