I did Carrie and Randy’s AMAZING After Party Session this Sunday afternoon in downtown Denver. Just as a reminder After Party Sessions are these sessions I created in substitution for the known trend “Trash the Dress”. I personally do not resonate with the meaning or the connotation behind it. I believe a wedding dress is something memorable and elegant and it should not be “trashed”. Through the After Party Sessions I am trying to create images of either brides or couples wearing their wedding attires again, but in a much more relaxed way this time. The idea is to have fun with them, and to wear original and even perhaps editorial type of accessories that will match their personalities. For their session Carrie and Randy chose the 50s theme!! and I could not love this more 🙂 I think it was perfect for them. The different spots I chose in downtown worked out great as a backdrop for their theme.Let’s start telling the story….
THE COLOR SERIES
After that we went to The Oxford Hotel. Could this spot be any more perfect!?… This image will be fantastic in a Christmas Card!… I love Carrie’s red shoes and gloves and I also love the somehow blueish backdrop with the amazing wreath on the window. Wow 🙂
I even researched a little and found a fabulous 50s diner on 16th St, Mall.. the manager was kind enough to let us shoot there!! I am so grateful. Maybe these pictures will end up on the diner’s walls! I absolutely love these images…
I saw this cupcakes cart and I thought it was super cute! Not very 50s, but cute and romantic… 🙂
BLACK AND WHITE SERIES
I wanted to showcase my images in 3 different ways this time since to me they all evoke a different feeling depending on the way they are edited. I think the black and whites are super classic and they definitely communicate something different than color images…
TIMELESS VINTAGE SERIES
I edited these group of images applying to them an old vintage effect. I think they look incredibly authentic and timeless. They evoke a particular romantic and timeless feeling in my opinion.
