Leading up to the busy wedding season, I have been working with a few fellow wedding photographers to put together a pseudo bridal/fashion/model photo shoot. The concept behind this photographers gathering is to get a bunch of photographers, a few brides/models/willing participants, head out to a general area in downtown Raleigh and photograph bridal portraits. I helped organize one last year and it was a wonderful success, so this year I super-sized the idea. Here are a few ideas on the size and scope of the event:
21 Wedding Photographers
8 Wedding Dresses
2 city blocks
As we laid siege to Glenwood Avenue, it was quite a sight to behold, apparently too much to behold as I did hear of one accident involving two cars, one rear ending the other just after passing one of our gorgeous brides.
After 2 hours of photography, the models & photographers we’re all exhausted but very happy with the end results. In my group, we had 5 photographers working with Lena, our bride, and we visited 8 locations in two hours within 2 city blocks in downtown Raleigh. It’s a wonderful reminder that we don’t always need green pastures or studios to get stunning portraits.
As always, here are a few select photos from the day! You can learn more about the event I organized or our group which holds monthly wedding photography meetings here.
