Photoshoot At Holmes Foundry

June 1, 20099

I went out with Troy Shantz (who is my newest friend here renting space from theStory) and Nikki Gould on a trash the dress shoot. We ended up at the old Holmes Foundry and exploring. The location was so dirty and trashy that we didn’t do much trashing of the dress and more just really got what we could out of the location. Next time we’ll move it to some dirt or water to really make it exciting. This is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this, so it was pretty fun. Elegance Bridal donated a few dresses and Louise Cook and Sam Scimmi were our models and we shot away for a few hours. It was awesome. The pressure of having to have the right shots for a real wedding was off and we just got to have fun. Check out 41 of the photos here, and here is a few of my favourites below. I don’t know what it was, but I was loving the one setup of Sam in the half open door with the light shining in the back.
