Being a photographer is sometimes a lot of hurry up and wait. It is certainly that way when it comes to publication. Sam Antics, the owner of Hey Pretty Beauty!, styled this amazing bridal shoot in the middle of the woods back in the summer. We carted, well carried, a heavy wood vanity and tons of props into the woods alongside the Scioto Audubon Metro Park in Columbus for a beautiful setting. But it was ungodly HOT. There was the slightest breeze and thankfully most of the models had at least one lingerie look in their wardrobe for the day to try to stay cool!
The light coming through the canopy was quite nice but was a challenge at times, too. The shoot turned out beautifully, but unfortunately, not many people have seen the resulting images because of delay in publication.
But I couldn't hold out any longer on this one particular image. This edit wasn't going to make it into a bridal magazine, but I love it anyway! This is a "Dark Beauty" type edit and is a merge of two separate images. Let me know what you think!
Psst.... this image was released exclusively on Tumblr earlier today as a "first look." If you're not following me over there, you might be missing out on exclusive/early content!
