The Elyse Chronicles: Here Comes the Bride

So I have decided to do a series of photos using these 10th Anniversary Jason Wu Elyse’s. My first choice of photos for this series was a bride and it’s using one of my favorite dolls from the 10th anniversary series and a favorite OOAK gown I had commissioned during 2017.  I hope you all enjoy!

I love following wedding photographers on Instagram.  While I have never photographed a wedding professionally ( oh the pressure!)  I have photographed some candid images for family and friends from their weddings.  I love to see some of the images that professional wedding photographers capture.  I am always in awe.

The gown was a special commission done by the talented Natalia Kunafina.  She has an ebay shop 2010Chizhik

The brides flowers are from Etsy seller Beadspage.

Playing around with lighting on this shoot was fun.  You will notice a different color cast to this shot as I was using mostly natural light as opposed to augmented or artificial lighting.  I’m not sure which one I like better…both have their positive and negatives.

Also tried out some really cool little LED lights I found at IKEA!  Really cool effect and sooooo inexpensive!!  You can find them here.

In case you are wondering…the paper is there to shield the light from the dress and just shine on her face LOL!  I have some master paper folding skills I never knew I had.

What can I say about this doll that this picture doesn’t….absolutely nothing.  She really is this beautiful.

And just because natural light can say it so much better than augmented light can…here she is…in all her ethereal beauty.  Thank you Jason for your gifts and for sharing them with collectors.

And if any of you are wondering what the soundtrack was for this shoot…go to Spotify and listen to “Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons”
