A Steampunk Story

This steampunk themed bridal shoot was set up by Australian photographer Angelica Peady and Lea from Willow Tree Creative Services) in order to to showcase these fabulous gowns from Gallery Serpentine. The shoot was styled to complement the amazing venue they chose, the Lithgow State Mine Park – an old mining site in New South Wales.

“It is the story of a strong bride who is trying to navigate her own way to her wedding,” Angelica told me. “Her compass brakes and she is left to explore and find her way on her own. She has her british prototype WWII night vision goggles and her mason’s on acid amulet for protection, finally she finds her way to a steam train and made it to her wedding fashionably late.”

Emily’s Bathed in Colour, Trash the Dress

Whoa holy awesome light Batman! When this trash the dress shoot by Nadine Photography landed on my desk last week, I had to do a double take because the killer light coupled with the orange paint? – recipe for photo shoot heaven y’all!

Bride Emily bought the dress at a clothing swap. It’s already had a stain on the chest and slightly raggedy edges so she wasn’t too worried about trashing it.

“Emily was very fearless,” Nadine told me. “She was the one that suggested climbing up a tree. Thankfully, Andy was assisting me and helped her up a tree despite the layers and layers of tulle.”

“When it came time to play with the paint, we started out with her painting some white flowers pink, and slowly dripping it over the dress. Creation, destruction, art. Here are the results…”

Candy Coloured Spring Inspiration

Following on from yesterday’s beautiful shoot from Lara Jade, I wanted to share some more mouth-watering Spring inspiration, this time from photographer Yuna Leonard.

This shoot was set up by Yuma to show some of the aspects of Spring that inspire her and her photography.

“I am so fascinated with cherry blossom, candy, all the pretty flowers, the Spring smell… a vintage dress + western boots + candy looking balloons is  my favorite spring combination!” she writes.

Happy Monday everyone!
