There is something that happens when you try something new for the first time… when you allow yourself time to play with unique concepts, colours & ideas. As a wedding photographer, I know this to be SO important to ensure that you continue to creatively grow – which means that your work constantly evolves and improves (I believe this is one of the tell tale signs of a good photographer, they experiment & try new things). In normal life, I’m drawn to romantic palettes, soft colours and whimsical ideas – always positive and always favouring the bright over the dark… so when I started thinking about a concept for a workshop I was hosting for photographers, I wanted to push my own boundaries (not only through teaching others, but also with what I was going to be photographing!) and this “Black Botanicals” shoot was born! While it’s a little darker than what I’d normally show, it’s a little grungier – it’s still so dang pretty! A HUGE thanks to Polka Dot Bride for featuring it last week as well, it’s always a huge honour to be on their gorgeous site!
Here are some frames from the shoot – to see the entire editorial on Polka Dot Bride, click here!
