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”
Happy Holidays to Everyone!
Wishing you all a happy and blessed holiday season!

Happy Holidays from ITFDS
Sorry for the obscenely long break between posts. I realized I have not posted since IT convention in October and my only excuse is that life hit hyper drive since then. I had WAY too many projects come up at once. I need to do a big shout out to Rogier Corbeau of The Dutch Fashion Doll World who graciously and beautifully handled the blog during the Integrity Toys convention. You rock!! I could not have left ITFDS in better hands during convention.
Back in July, I began some holiday shoots that I had planned to make into holiday cards. Great idea but not enough time to turn it into reality. Oh well, there is always next year right? Since I don’t have time to send these, I thought I would just put it on the blog as one big digital holiday card to everyone. I am so very grateful to all my readers for your support. It means the world to me. I hope to continue my photography series in the year ahead and I am looking forward to bringing more consistent content to the blog. I hope this post finds you all happy, healthy and in anticipation of some really great dolls under your tree or in your stocking.
