I don’t think I’ve ever gotten up that early on a Saturday. As I drove up to the farm on the outskirts of Nisku, I felt my stomach sinking and tingling with anticipation and excitement – today I would photograph 9 brides! Well, pretend brides … 9 amazing, gorgeous, and unique models from Hi-Fi boutique modeling agency. The day was so intense and rewarding – the most incredible collaboration I could dream of!
A big thank you goes out to Fiona McNair of Hi-Fi and her girls – Kristina, Kalen, Iryna, Kristen, Paige, Paige W, Sarah, Hana, and Danee – you were unreal. And so patient! The gorgeous one-of-a-kind gowns were provided by designer Lan Van Rooyen – thank you so much for bearing with our artistic visions and letting us take the dresses where no bride has gone before! The make-up artistry was provided by the talented Nicola Gavins – check out her blog HERE. Thank you Danielle Aitken for doing such an amazing job with the hair despite breathing hairspray all day! Thanks to my wicked assistant Kemi Sonuga – her blog HERE and model Iryna – for being such an inspiration and trooper (she changed into LuluLemon and assisted me most of the day, holding the reflector, climbing walls, trees, and fences – you are awesome). Thank you so much Candice (Popik Photography) for sharing the magical farm of your aunt & uncle and being such warm, fun, and talented ‘partner in crime’!!
I will now tease you with a few of my favorites, two of each girl… More to come in a few days!
