You know there is never a dull moment in our work flow. We are surrounded by wonderful clients and friends that are in the wedding industry. And, we have a knack for finding the truly unique and energizing projects.
Recently we happened upon a very exciting new magazine called Rock Bride. The first issue is under production and will release later in the Spring. The magazine is also producing a wedding show in Bellevue this fall. We are told the show will have live entertainment, vendor booths, cake tastings, wine and beer tastings, two fashion shows, a Men’s Zone and lots of give-aways.
We met with the publisher and knew instantly that we must sign up for the show. Serenity Armstrong, publisher extraordinare, had us from the moment she explained her concept. “This is not your mother’s wedding” has become the magazine’s tagline. BINGO. Our enthusiasm helped land a few stylized shoots. These are the types of shoots that THRILL us. Trying new techniques, working with top notch wedding industry vendors, talented models all the while being able to create something that will hopefully help inspire engaged couples plan their unique wedding.
Our clients are looking for something different. They want a modern twist on their wedding. Granted, this modern wedding might include vintage flair with the height of elegance and sparkle or it might involve a Time Travel Theme or a combination somewhere in between. So what makes something a modern wedding? We are seeing couples that are making their own traditions. We are seeing themed weddings emerge, destination weddings, hybrid elopements, weddings with unique entertainment for guests, pop-up weddings and lots of LGBT weddings – which makes our hearts sing.
While we eagerly await for the release of the first issue of Rock This Bride, we can only show very basic sneak peek photos. Here are a few from our stylized shoots. You can only guess what we were up to…because we can’t tell you!
The first image is of our models back in their street clothes. The rest are hints. But, our lips are sealed!
