"Mafia" Bridal Shoot (styled)

14 - 07 - 13

I met Theo from Vintage Works (classic car hire) at an Expo where we exibited next door to one another, after seeing his car collection, I had this idea of doing a 1930's "mafia" inspired wedding shoot, just for the fun of it. You could perhaps call it my personal project for this year.

From there I got a dress designer, Lianel, from Lianel Schwartz Couture, involved to provide an awesome vintage dress for the occasion. I also asked Marie, from MC Flowers, who happens to be my mom, to make a bridal bouquet to suit the theme. I gathered props here and there, like the "tommy" gun and other things to enhance the mood of the shoot.

I also borrowed a fog machine from Angie at Starlight Sounds (great dj's) to create that misty effect, and I was fortunate to have Bianca, a previous bride of mine, model for me as the "femme fatale". So early last Sunday morning, we set of to Cullinan for this shoot, and I was so happy to see this vision I had come to life in front of me. I can't thank everyone enough for helping me make this happen.  Below are the list of suppliers I would like to credit for this occasion.

P.S. this is not my normal editing style, but due to the theme and nature of the shoot, I wanted to incorporate a dark feel to the photos
