Beautiful Bride Magazine Cover Shoot

May
04

We are excited to share photos from our latest editorial shoot for the cover of Beautiful Bride Magazine and Las Vegas Bride Magazine!

Several months ago we were contacted by the publisher of Beautiful Bride Magazine and Las Vegas Bride Magazine to photograph this month’s cover image. It was an honor to be asked to photograph the cover and to work with the wonderful team of professionals who helped bring  everything together.

You may recognize the cover model, Stefanie Jay, a news anchor for FOX5 Las Vegas. Stefanie was an absolute pleasure to photograph, and from a photographer’s perspective, a perfect model. Not only is she a natural at posing in front of the camera, but also an utmost professional and loads of fun to work with.

A big thanks to Jennifer Florendo, editor of Beautiful Bride Magazine, Stefanie’s mother who came along to assist in the shoot, Melinda of Hairz Melinda, Bella Bridesmaid, Flora Couture, T-Bird Jewels, and Shelly Sampson of Canyon Gate Country Club for providing us with a beautiful venue.

Even with such an incredible team of pros, there were a few challenges. Namely, changing lighting conditions and getting through ten to fifteen  different outfits in a limited amount of time. Stefanie and the stylists were extremely efficient in quick touch-ups and outfit changes. Meanwhile, our own photo crew was busy preparing for different sets and lighting situations. Here in the desert, the light changes quickly and can be very harsh, so it was important for us to choose locations where the model wouldn’t be overwhelmed by harsh, direct sunlight. In order to balance out the brightness of the sun, we used a few powerful strobes and a reflector to enhance the images.

The photos were also published in an earlier article where Stefanie shared her experiences as a bridesmaid. Having been a bridesmaid in her fair share of weddings, she gave tips and advice for planning brides and discussed what brides can do to make the most of their big day.
