On weddings and wedding hair and make up, went to Danson House, Danson Park today and set up lights in the dining room and the upstairs balcony. The place is amazing, period decor and furniture and super light through the windows looking out onto the park. A couple from a huge heap I took and am still looking through. The aim of wedding make-up is not to look over-done, but to enhance your natural beauty. In the second shot, we went for a more dramatic look, perhaps that could be used during the reception and into the evening.
I made this one mono for a more fashion look. Jessica has amazing eyes and gorgeous brunette hair. What’s amazing is she isn’t a professional model. I think she has some talent that is going to waste.
This photo is pretty well straight out of the camera, just cropped a little. I took my studio lights, and used them to enhance the natural light from the oval skylight at the top of the stairs.
Lorraine is now expecting her first baby, but squeezed into her dress for the shoot. Absolutely blooming.
Then we again made the make up more dramatic, which really suited Lorraine on the balcony on the top floor.
Finally, some finished edits in mono and slightly desaturated illustrated here with a mount effect, and although it is difficult to fully see in web-size images, you can see that these would look stunning with a brushed metal frame to tone with the image, displayed large and hung on a wall. Bridal pictures shouldn’t just be for the album, they can be a much more prominent piece of wall art.
