styled bridal shoot | portrait.

After being able to partake in my first styled shoot a little over a month ago, a Waldo inspired theme (check it out HERE and HERE) I’ve been fixated on trying to keep shooting some personal projects and making sure to surround myself with creative and passionate individuals to create art.  The team that did the #waldo shoot, joined forces again, plus a few new faces, and a different model. The result was out of this world.  For this shoot, we looked for inspiration in the Bride of Frankenstein, Corpse Bride and various elements of Tim Burton. I want to thank the team for being so passionate about this project and their hard work, vision and dedication.  I am so proud to have been apart of it. For now, here is part one of two. part1 hair | Richard Vo | Opus Salon Yaletown | cutandcolorfiend.com make-up | Colbi Smith styling | Tiffany Antonio | Five Feet Fashion | fivefeetfashion.tumblr.com styling assistant | Cheryl Carrasco nails | Denise Escalante | deeznails.tumblr.com model | Kara F | modelmayhem.com/1041236 dresses | Myrna |MJM Wedding Services | www.mjmweddings.com to be continued…

inspired by fer.

On Wednesday, I was privileged to attend a workshop by a photographer, who in my opinion is one of the best in the world. His name is Fer Juaristi and not only is he a top notch artist, he is a quality human being. One of the biggest things I learned from this crazy mexican was to let go and not be afraid to create – unleashe my creativity and shoot images that I love to shoot. I love images that are raw in emotion, aesthetically appealing in composition and dynamic in light.  Fer’s workshop inspired me to always keep those elements in mind as I shoot, and I know the results will be killer. I was truly inspired on Wednesday, and I can speak for the other photographers that were there with me: Fer is the bomb. http://ferjuaristi.com/ A special thanks to the #mofos at Nordica Photography for getting this all together and a big thank you to the biggest #mofo, Fer! I cannot wait for this wedding season! The following images are my favourites from throughout the day. Which one is yours!?
