The next set with the red bohemian dress turned out amazingly as well, the dress was the perfect complement to the location… Or maybe I should say the location was the perfect complement to the dress. It was really hard picking out favorite photos from this session with Natalie. I love so many of them.
Noir is French for black, but in photography it has another meaning. It describes a type of dark, high contrast photography that is typically moody and dramatic. I love shooting nourish photos. I’m not sure if it’s because it fits my personality or if it’s just because they are usually fun to do. 🙂
After the noir set, we played around a bit with an old trunk that I had. It was badly rusted out on the bottom and back though. So bad that it fell apart on me when I was trying to take it home. At least I got some cool photos with it before it bit the dust.
When my good friend Lacey told me she was going to be getting married I volunteered to do the wedding photos. But they had decided to go to Vegas and get it all taken care of there, quick, easy, and no headaches or planning needed. 🙂 I can totally understand that.
But they did ask me to take care of their engagement photos. 🙂
So I’m sure you’ve seen the Rosie the Riveter art from WWII. Well, when I saw these coveralls hanging in a thrift store I knew that was what I was going to do with them. And Natalie liked the idea as well. The coveralls are actually US Navy issue aircraft mechanic coveralls. The back of the coveralls are stenciled Plane Captain and VA-37 around a silhouette of an A-7 Corsair fighter plane, which was in service from 1967 to 1991. The style of these coveralls and especially the stenciling is more 60’s to 70’s so I’m going to say these coveralls are a vintage find in its own right.
I really need to go back to that thrift shop, they usually have some pretty nice stuff. Anyway, I would love to do an airplane mechanic shoot with these coveralls as well… you know…. Just for the fun of it. 🙂
