This time of year, when the wedding season slows down, I get opportunity to get creative with my friends. At least once a year, for the last three years, I team up with Ichiko Nagai, some friends and do a stylized shoot. This year, I have been really inspired by cranberries so I thought about doing something centered around Christmas tones and colours. The problem with stylized shoots is that I always want them to look perfect, glamours and over the top but that requires money. I’m not rich so I have to improvise and find items around the house and borrow them off friends, lol. Here is a list of items I used and where I found them:
1) Wedding dress – My sister, lol.
2) Cloak – My Aunt’s Grandmother.
3) Jewelry – Mine and Ichiko’s.
4) Wreath – Off of Ichiko’s Wall, lol.
5) Flowers – Safeway and a mix of fallen branches from the ground.
After all is said and done, it realized that it doesn’t take a lot of money to get great photos!
Oh, it also helps to have gorgeous friends!!!! lol. Neva you are beautiful!
Get out there and be creative!
