trashed my dress...

image by katie neal

i got to be a bridal model at the last socal photog shootout.
it was really fun to be on the front side of the camera
from about a hundred other photographers throughout the day.
an interesting learning experience. and i kinda trashed my dress.

gowns were provided but it's a good thing i brought my dress as a backup,
since all the sample gowns were like size 10 and i am a tiny little thing.
but really, any excuse to get to dress up in my wedding gown for a day?
sign me up. a bonus was that i got to borrow an enzoani sash,
pinned it up really good and used it as an embellishment to "update" my dress.

if you are a photographer make sure to check out photog shootout and sign up for their events.
you'll meet a lot of great photographers and learn a thing or two.

it was really cool for me to observe how each photographer worked so differently,
 and produced so many different angles, emotions, composition, post-processing...
different art from the same subject.
here are are a few photos from a few of the many awesome photographers...
