Vintage Vogue

The shoot was loosely titled ~ ‘Vintage Vogue’ From the simple nature of what the two day shoot became. Recently published in ‘Ottawa Wedding Magazine’

VOGUE, speaks of the fashion element of the shoot with the use of the luxury dress’s from Ashton Station Bridal, featuring Toronto designer, Rita Vinieris. We had five models, one central location, the backdrops were all very rustic and or worn buildings so the dresses would stand out as finished beauty, polished gem per-say. Vintage is a reflection of the props chosen, dresses featured etc… the images really speak for themselves.

We were a group of talented wedding professionals in the local market place ~ from photography / styling – hair & makeup / set production / dress designer, props & models. The vibe that was going around during the shoot was ‘Ottawa’s best kept rural secret’ as the majority of us are located either in the west end of Ottawa or the Ottawa valley.
