Hello everyone and welcome along to another week on the blog, Where did the weekend...
Happy Friday everyone, I have a real treat to round off the week, with this beautiful styled shoot from Mississippi. With stunning light only possible from the famed US golden-hour, this shoot invokes a classic, timeless feel with simple rustic styling and fashion. The colours and tones compliment the rustic setting perfectly and I am in love with this Bride and Groom’s style! With thanks to Cassie Cook for the stunning images.
I have a tendency to end up in thrift stores, and recently I stumbled upon an old photo album from the 1930’s and 1940’s, and it influenced me to design a wedding inspiration photoshoot based around that time and style. I wanted to take a step back in time, into an era before Facebook and hashtags and MTV. I wanted passion and love, and the timelessness that only those two emotions can offer. I wanted to incorporate my southern roots with a vintage feel, and to tie in my connection and love for music and stringed instruments. I was privileged enough to work along side some incredibly talented vendors.
I have become intrigued with film and the process of developing over the last couple of months. My favorite thing about shooting on film is the little imperfections. It’s natural to want every photo you take to be “perfect” or “correct” but sometimes, life isn’t perfect. It’s messy, it’s out of focus, its darker than you want or intended. Film photography reminds me to embrace the imperfections and quirks and accept the flaws for what they actually are; individuality. I normally just use my film camera for my own personal endeavors, but I wanted to photograph part of this session on film to achieve the vintage, 1930’s look and feel that I wanted to portray. The black and white images were shot on film and developed by hand in my own home!
