60s Sirens: A retro styled shoot
When Michelle Lacey (aka Bumblebee Bridal) put the word out that she wanted to do a Sixties inspired shoot I jumped at the chance.
I’m more than happy to indulge in anything with a retro vibe, and collaborating with fellow creative, Essex-based wedding suppliers is always fun!
Michelle, Lisa Alger (ie. the dream team of makeup and hair), Rock the Day (an awesome team of wedding stylists and prop creators) and I gathered together with dresses from Rock the Frock bridal boutique and hair pieces by PS With Love. We grabbed some of the best models around and headed to Rock the Day’s studio, in Braintree.
I chose a yellow backdrop for the studio style images, to give a modern day twist to a
Michelle & Lisa styled hair and makeup to be seriously sixties, and we ended up with an alternative Charlies Angels vibe, with a cinematic edit – and we all love it. It’s so rewarding to have a collective of wedding specialists who love to indulge their creative sides – especially when they’re in need of an alternative wedding photographer to capture it all.
I indulged in some 35mm film photographs too (it’s not often you have this set up in front of you, and I was sure to take advantage!) – look out for another blog post on those soon.
In the meantime, here are some images from the shoot – I hope you enjoy!
f you’re looking to collaborate on a styled shoot, with an alternative outlook, then get in touch– maybe we can get creative together.
