Spurned Bride (Trash the Dress) – Preview

Joline and I have been contemplating a ‘trash the dress’ shoot since her gown had been sitting for years, perfectly preserved and dry cleaned…in a closet.

There are photographers who have put together some really creative concepts and we wanted something a bit fresh and perhaps dark.

Since we were close to Halloween, we decided on a really broody bride concept.  Sad to be spurned and eventually, comes to grips with what happened and begins planning ‘her revenge’.  🙂

Here is a preview of the shoot.   First panel, she throws away her now-dead flowers in the church which has crumbled around her while she waited for him, and in the second panel, this is the angry, bad-a$$, new attitude bride.  Enjoy.


A couple of months ago, I collaborated with fellow photographer, RB Del Rosario (thanks RB), to shoot a collection from Wanda Cobar.  It was a scenic location on the South Side of Chicago.

All in all, it was great teamwork and great Hair and Make-up by Cris Maldonado.

ANTM: Kayla Ferrel

I shot ‘America’s Next Top Model Cycle 15’ contestant, Kayla Ferrel, earlier this year as part of a Fashion shoot for the JM Couture ‘Reve’ line.

Even then, Kayla stood out and we are all rooting for her this season and we hope Tyra Banks sees the talent we saw in her.
