Romantic Threads & Dark Beauty Magazine

A few months ago I had the pleasure of photographing some gowns from one of my favorite designers, Belinda Barry of Romantic Threads. Her gowns are AMAZING. One of a kind, cant find anywhere else, knock down gorgeous, just gotta have it gowns. I highly recommend her to all brides our there looking for something custom made and unique!

Follow the link and check out the way her dresses transformed bride to be Chrissy in daring black (yes, I said black!) for an episode of David Tutera's My Fair Wedding this past January. The wedding theme was Alice in Wonderland. (LOVE!)

Creations by Romantic Threads were recently featured in the June/July issue of Dark Beauty Magazine, including a 2 page spread with artwork by your truly. :) Hair, Make up and modeling (she's a very busy lady! lol) by the ever-fabulous and talented Serena Star of Serena Star Photography.

              Thought I'd share with you all a few others from the day, as well as the full versions of the magazine pics. ^_^

 Ok, I know these next 2 images don't show the gown, but I was just having too much fun playing with the mask. Serena mentioned later what a coincidence it was that we ended up using a butterfly mask, as she had recently been proposed to by her now-fiance in the Butterfly Garden at the Museum of Natural Sciences. We actually didn't even think about that until after the shoot!


I have been so focused on the weddings lately with my work, that I thought it would be a good idea to stretch my digital painting legs a bit and have some fantasy-fun with a couple of the images. I've been feeling rusty lately. You know what they say - you don't use it, you lose it! (except in the case of body fat apparently, lol)

There was a second model scheduled for the day, but her car broke down on the way to the shoot and she was unable to make it at the last minute. Booooo.  What can ya do? Gotta make due. ;)

There's things I like about the image above and things I don't. Its definitely an idea I would like to play with more in the future. The next image below, on the other hand,  I am quite happy with how it came out. I would have liked to edit more from the day, at some point when I have the time I might delve back into it. When it comes to photoshop painting, sometimes you just have to sit on pics for awhile until inspiration strikes.

Keep checking back! More cool wedding pics on the way.
