Sometimes, great shoots come together in awesome ways.
I was at a wedding vendor networking event. You know we all talk to each other, right? I was hanging out with Tina Rodosta, owner of the Verde Beauty Studio and Loft Studios NOLA .We were talking about how much we both love working with our wedding clients, but how we wanted to try something a bit different, something where we got to choose the themes and subject matter.
Personal projects let us stretch our wings a bit. They let us toy with the boundaries of what we like and encourage us to see what we’re capable of. Tina and I talked about some of the things we wanted to try, and we found a common interest in classic Film Noir. We settled on a date, and Tina found Sydney to model for us. We had a great time creating these images.
If you are looking for a makeup artist, there is no one I can recommend more highly than Tina and her team. Every time I hear that we're working on a wedding together, I have full confidence that her work will be perfect.
If you're a photographer looking for a studio to rent in New Orleans, I can't say enough great things about Loft Studios NOLA. It has beautiful natural light and high ceilings. Or, if you prefer, you can do what we did: bring your flashes in, close the blinds, and convert it to a classic studio space. There’s real versatility with convenient off-street parking. You really can't beat it.
