Yesterday we spent a fun day with some fellow photographers (and friends) shooting urban bridals. These kinds of shoots are a blast! Setting aside time for a bridal photography session is a tradition in some parts of the country, and one that should be a tradition in Michigan. It allows the bride to get a series of unique and creative images that would be impractical to shoot during the confines of a normal wedding schedule. It’s also an absolute blast for us, as we are free to play and try new techniques. While hitting a funky urban setting makes for pure eyecandy, the session can be anything you want it to be, from the sleek look of an editorial spread to something more traditional and elegant. Or modern, hip, colorful, and a bit grungy…like this session.
I’m going to break this up into a couple posts just to give each model her due. All the models were FABULOUS. Total naturals – as you’ll see.
All of these photos in this post were taken at the Russell Industrial Center. We’ve been renting a space there for a few months now. It’s a very raw space, as you can see. But if you don’t mind getting a little dusty, there are some awesome photographic opportunities, indoors and out. This space is available for any of our clients looking for a location for their engagement sessions or day after sessions. Just sayin! :)
That’s it for now! More coming soon!
