Portobello Salon, Organica Natural Beauty - August 2015
After a long while in planning I finally got around to conducting a Bridal Shoot for the ladies at Portobello Salon & Organica Natural Beauty. I had booked this commission way back in June. After months of planning and rigorous location scouting Plan A was well and truly torn up due to the horrendous weather across the South West through late August. Therefore we put Plan B into action with a studio element to the editorial and making use of the breaks in the rain to shoot what we could out on location.
I was fairly anxious over shooting in a studio as this would be my first commission doing so. After a few early nerves and saying to myself "oh shit, oh shit" a few times over in my head I got into the swing of things. I found my feet relatively swiftly and I thoroughly enjoyed the ease at which I could manage the lighting. Thankfully my Model, Beth Benger was a dream to work with which further calmed my nerves and made for a really fun and enjoyable shoot.
I can't thank the ladies from this shoot enough, all of which put in so much effort and worked so solidly throughout a long and damp day.
Special thanks and mentions:
