It’s been such a long time since I put a bridal shoot together. It takes so long to organise everything and the weather hasn’t been great. This shoot was pretty simple, as I shot it in my studio. I wanted to focus on a simple look for spring to show off the makeup and hair.
This shoot ended up being quite tricky. I shot the photos in my main beauty room. I used a stand with a pink background, some large pom poms I had made from a previous shoot and two studio lights. I wanted to get some detail of the jewellery so I had the camera settings on F13, speed 1/200 and 100 iso. The only trouble was the background was too sharp, so it didn’t look professional. I tried different ways, but did struggle. Also I kept getting a black side to the photos, which realised afterwards my shutter was too slow for the lights. I think that’s why practice makes perfect, but the team were great and I am pretty please with the end result.
Let me know what you think.
The makeup theme was peach. This is a big trend this year, so we wanted to create a fresh spring look. Shauna one of my team did one of the models and I did the other. We used a sleek palette I had for the eyes and the new makeup range we have in our studio called Mii for the lips.
