BRIDAL CONFIDENTIAL FASHION SHOOT AT CAESARS WINDSOR

 

Thought I would shoot some dramatic photos for the fashion section of the Bridal Confidential Magazine.  Caesars Windsor was the venue providing some interesting backgrounds.  The beautiful gowns were provided by Bridal Couture, hair by Classic Recreations, bouquets by I&F Designs, makeup by Makeup by Klaudia & jewellery by G & G.  Thanks to our models Madison & Nadya!!

BRIDAL CONFIDENTIAL WEDDING FASHION SHOOT FOR 2010

What a perfect day for the fashion shoot for Bridal Confidential Magazine.  We conceived a “Fantasy” concept with Diane’s property & horses from Designs by Diane as the background, exaggerated hairstyles from Classic Re Creations & over the top make-up from Nadia & Rasha of Glow Makeup Studios.  Our models, Meagan, Alicia & Angelika were absolutely fantastic as well as patient.  Working with horses was especially challenging but everyone’s efforts paid off!  The results are below.  Thanks to everyone who participated!!

Britton Images is celebrating 80 years of style with Freeds – Windsor Commercial Photographer

A few weeks ago, I was asked to be a part of printed history and shoot for the Freeds 80th Anniversary magazine.  We spent 2 mornings at Freeds, documenting the people and fashion as well as the men behind 2 of Windsor’s best known salons: U4ia on Howard and T’Dye For on Ottawa.

The magazine itself is set to be released with the Windsor Star tomorrow.  However, the digital copy, which is already available, can be viewed on the Windsor Star website.  The following are the pages on which my work is featured.  Enjoy!

Photos from “Shoot with Beckstead” Wedding Photography Workshop in Windsor. *****

Well, it’s taken awhile but Ive finally got some really awesome pics up from the Shoot with Beckstead seminar at the end of August.  All I can say is that it was a sweet, sweet experience to shoot with this world famous wedding photo master!  And the energy he put forth was unbelievable :)  Three full days packed with “how to” business savvy, photo shoots, group constructive critical analysis and best of all the encouragement to get out of our comfy box.”   The Beckstead “freestyle” way of shooting showed me a different way of looking at light and line and the best part is that he didn’t waste time setting up, he just walked into a setting, took a quick look see at where the light was coming from and shot, shot and shot some more.  For those who do not know of David Beckstead he is well known in the wedding fotog’s world and is sought out to shoot weddings worldwide for couples who really appreciate professional photography.  He often speaks at WPPI in Las Vegas and holds workshops everywhere a plane can fly him in. His style is a composite of journalistic, editorial, fine art  and fashion photography Britton Images Photography was honoured to host David Beckstead at the studio here in Windsor.  I got to meet some great fotogs who came from US and Canada so we got to share each others styles and visions.  I had a great time and he loved our dogs. Kat, Liz, Sasha and Atti acted as models and did a fabulous job.  My mom hunted down some gritty urban sites in Windsor and we spent nearly a full day shooting at the Art Gallery of Windsor.  David loved the light, lines and architecture.  We almost had to drag him out of there.  He took an amazing shot of Kat in the elevator.  There is absolutely no forbidden territory for David….in fact, if you say it can’t be done he will set out to prove you wrong.  I love his positive attitude, his energy and his love of photography as an art. Below, you will find some of my pics.  If you would like to see some of his work from this workshop just visit his David Beckstead Facebook fanpage.  Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. The first shots were taken at the Art Gallery of Windsor.

THANKS A MILLION DAVID !!!!

Bridal Confidential Magazine Fashion Spread – Windsor Fashion Photographer

June was the perfect time to shoot this year’s fashion photography spread for the 2009 Bridal Confidential Magazine, a local directory dedicated to brides who are planning their weddings.  From the sunny, cloud spattered blue skies and light breezes to the lush vineyards of Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, a better day couldn’t have been specially ordered.  Planning was done for about 1 month prior.  It’s amazing how much work goes into putting the 8 page spread together.  Deciding on the models Liz, Ivona, Stephanie and Kinga was the first thing.  Then they had to go for fittings at His & Hers Wear and Bridal on Ottawa St.  My staff here at Britton Images Photography then had to co-ordinate all the vendors: His & Hers Wear, Rosser Reeves Jewellers, Classic ReCreations Hair Studio, Glow Makeup Studio, Guaranteed Fine Furniture, Designs by Diane, and all the participating florists: Gail’s Flowers and Gifts, New Designs, Bloom Boutique Flowers & Gifts, I &F Design and Oak Farms Ltd.  Additional co-ordinating the birds in some of the shots consisted of chasing them along the beachfront.

I ended up with a lot of awesome shots making it hard to pick only 8.  I’ve posted a few that you might enjoy.  And thanks especially to Nellie from His & Hers Wear and Bridal for having all the gowns and accessories ready so the shoot went smoothly.  At the rate we’re going I’d advise to keep an eye out for our work next year, too!

I’m so lucky to be able to follow my passions!  Fashion photography is another one of my passions along with wedding photography and children’s storybooks.

Yours truly,

😉   Ms. Amy Britton
