Ivy and Aster Bridesmaids

Looking back October really was the month of bridal extravaganza with Ivy and Aster.  Starting with New York Bridal Week, the bridal lookbook shoot andpresentation, (and editing, retouching, and deliveries) and finally the bridesmaids collection.  So it only made sense that we get the team  - Ananda Khan of Big Leo andBloom Brides and Ren Kelly of APM Models - back together for this last project.  

 

Working with one team (with hardly any crew changes) on multiple back to back projects is always an interesting  experience.  Most of the time the I will work with the same group of hair and makeup artists and stylists, but the models change almost every shoot, so you are forging a (potentially very intimate) working relationship with a total stranger in minutes that can last only hours.  Having the time to develop familiarity over multiple days of shooting is a rare treat and always makes the shoots much more comfortable and feel less like work.
