I had lunch yesterday with a friend who happens to be planning her wedding. Afterwards, we went to check out a venue she is considering for the big day and the Planner gave her a few copies of Chic Weddings magazine. One of which was the January 2013 issue, giving me a chance to show my friend the editorial shoot by Patrizia Castiglione of Magnolia Studio where I had a great time photographing some behind the scenes images for Patty. It reminded me that I should show them here as well.
Patrizia also photographed the cover image for this issue. You can see her final images from the day, inspired by a Sicilian Wedding, that were featured in Chic Weddings on Magnolia's facebook page.
The day started early, I met up with two others across town at 6 a.m. ( after getting home from photographing an event at 2:00 a.m.! ) and we drove to Rigaud in time for hair and makeup to get started by 7.
There were what seemed like a million people on set - between a full wedding party worth of models, make up artists, hairstylists, wardrobe stylists, photo assistants, the property owners, florists, other vendors, videographers, and the magazine and art directors, there was a lot for me to photograph. I loved seeing Patty work and the behind the scenes access to a large photo production was a great way to spend the day. Oh, and there was a pony!
