Rock that Frock

March 3, 2010

This fun all day trash the dress shoot was sent over by UK photographer Natasha Hurley. I really love seeing the evolution of time throughout these images – from the early morning light in the garden shots, to the late afternoon sun in the graffiti shots and the evening time darkness with the contrast of the artifical lights in the final urban images. Quite apart from that, the bride Miranda looks like she’s having a ball and I love love love her heart shaped pink sunglasses.

“My thought process was for the shoot to have a slightly magical quality with a modern twist” Natasha told me “It came about after I bought a shockingly bright pink handheld mirror with baroque patterning around it….In the end the mirror only made it in one of the shots (the silhouette of Miranda looking at the mirror), but it was a great starting point I guess. The photos are a mixture of posed shots and those “in between” moments which I love to capture – in this photoshoot they are mainly of Miranda cracking up laughing as passers-by shouted “congratulations” to her!”


“The photoshoot took place in South London – Streatham Common and South Bank to be precise” she continued ” but in each location I wanted to find the unusual and different angles or lighting, especially South Bank, so I used things like the entrance to a restaurant, a stairwell etc not a backdrop of the Eye etc.”

Thanks to Natasha for sharing these fab, fun shots with us
