Thanks to our amazing talented crew for working so long and hard when we shot our Spring 2014 Signature Collection of wedding dresses
Shooting two 12-hour days back-to-back isn't easy especially when the heat index in St. Louis climbs over 100 degrees. Everyone is thrilled I decided not to go on location and instead shoot in an air-conditioned studio.
Bibi Photography is the real magic maker shooting thousands of frames of fantastic images stopping only to take a quick lunch break! Her husband Vladko gets all the credit for shooting the behind-the-scenes video that we will post soon!
Our models, Yanderis Lodos and Sarah Flack, keep their professional cool and always look like the most gorgeous plus size brides - even under the hot lights on the set!
Makeup artist to the stars, Lisa Kalz, is always a step away to powder their face or touch up their lips so their faces as flawless. Dee, our hair stylist, stands by with spray, brush and comb when the hair goes limp or, as we are fond of saying, "misbehaved".
No one had a sticker job than Lauren and Lori in wardrobe who steamed and pressed yards and yards of wedding gowns so the satin, taffeta and tulle wedding dresses looked flawless through the lens. Thank goodness we brought extra fans!
Michelle Rosenfield kept us well-organized on the fast-paced set tracking which dresses we shot and what we still needed to photograph.
Now we face the hard part. Selecting the images that will appear on the website and in our marketing campaigns. It won't be easy. We shot over 3,000 frames!
