Fashion Shoot Post #2 - Paper Dresses







This was one memorable shoot...and the photos/wardrobe featured in this post were only a part of it...so many talented people worked very hard to mutually pull off something (hopefully) special. Many of you have asked me who the shoot was for and why it took place. Interesting story:


Julie Strating and I started casually chatting at a Christmas Party for our friends at StoryTelling Pictures...and the next thing you know we agreed to collaborate on a major fashion shoot to benefit our mutual portfolios. I'll give you the whole back story of how (and why) this came to be with my next post.


These amazing paper dresses were designed and created by fashion designer/artist Claudia Petrelli. Claudia is from Grand Rapids...by way of Bucharest, Romania. Thank you, Claudia!


Here's the rest of the hard working crew...amazing job by everyone.


Julie Strating: Make-up Artist
Erin Brown: Hair Stylist
Natasha Ohlman: Fashion and Set Stylist


Models:
Jon "JC" Cunningham: Male Model
Alexandra Rush: Female Model (of Ford Models in New York City)
Christine Praniewicz: Female Model (of Matthew Agency of Grand Rapids)


Brian Kelly: Photographer

Josh Tyron: Lead Assistant

Location: Wealthy Theater - Grand Rapids, Michigan (thank you, Erin for all your help!)

A big thanks to my crew of Josh and Liz...you always have my back...and the sandwiches.

Nice blogging about fashion photography. Be ready to be fabulous like Paris Hilton and get the runway look for a fashion show. A V-neck long white dress in thin straps with black as its accent will make way for a stylish runway dress. A black-waist ribbon would complement its black embroideries to serve as embellishment. Find beaded necklace that would make the attire complete, paired with matching oversized earrings. A pair of Greek sandals is a must-have this wear. Make sure that you have one to make the attire into perfection. Don't forget to get an elegant quilted purse at dress up games to place everything necessary for touch-ups.
