I know that I say this all the time, but I really do mean it- I had SO much fun shooting this session!! Olena is this tall, gorgeous woman with a sexy Ukrainian accent and when she contacted me about doing a session for her modeling portfolio, I knew we were going to do something out of the ordinary! She was hoping for an edgy, urban feel, so we headed over to the American Tobacco Historic District in Durham and wandered among the brick and iron that was once the Lucky Strike factory. It was an absolute blast to process the images that we created…it’s pretty rare that I photograph something that calls for a uber-modern cross-processed look (it doesn’t tend to be the look most bride’s want for their wedding photography), so it was really fun to just go a little wild!
For the second half of Olena’s session, she donned a wedding gown and we went exploring in downtown Durham. I wish I’d thought to have my camera at the ready when she exited the restroom of the Mellow Mushroom…the expression on the faces of the people dining when she passed was just hilarious!
Thanks again for a great session, Olena!!
