Eno River Bridal 2015
My first attempt at editorial photography. I probably should have gone for a more simple setting, but this was a go big or go home situation. Spending time at the Eno River as a child on Fourth of July celebrations, I had never thought of it as a shoot location and had not been back till 2015 for an engagement session. One of my couples wanted to shoot along the river and in an abandoned cabin off one of the hiking trails. That engagement shoot would lead to my Eno River bridal series
In 2015 I decided to shoot bridal portraits in the Eno River. Due to the nature of the shoot, no bridal gown company would lend me dresses. I asked around to friends to see if they had any wedding gowns they were willing to part with and after several weeks I was able to find five or six dresses. On a one hundred degree, hot summer day nine models, three assistants, and I went down to the Eno River and shot for six hours. The result was my first collaborative creative editorial project.
Eno River Bridal 2016
Being a wedding photographer I am familiar with working with other wedding vendors to make the day go perfectly. I took that experience and transferred it to the collaborative projects. The next year I wanted to repeat the Eno River shoot. I wanted to bring in professional hair and makeup artist to take the look if the shoot to another level. The Eno river being a fairly remote location it took some searching to find the right team of artist to pull off the shoot. Take a look at 2016’s gallery.
