I really love collaborating with other artists. It’s a great way for us to brainstorm ideas together and really create something new & fresh to show our clients. Personally, it gives me the opportunity to work with vendors I may not have a chance to otherwise work with and when clients ask for my recommendations in the future, I can pass on more names!
For this shoot, Rakhee’s concept was for a fresh editorial styled wedding in the mountains and Pyramid Lake in Jasper was the perfect setting! In case you didn’t read my previous post, I met Rakhee through Nada, another hair & makeup artist, who I both met at a fashion show (you can read more about it HERE).
We shot Rakhee’s concept in two parts: the shoot with models, Samantha & Blair, in Jasper, and the invitations at Northern Bear Golf Club in Edmonton. I wish I had more pictures of the golf club to show you because it’s a gorgeous rustic venue for weddings, so you’ll just have to check it out for yourself next time you go golfing!
As for the collaboration, my favourite part of this shoot was being able to shoot on the frozen lake because this was pretty much the only way we were able to get the mountain in the background too. There were a few sketchy parts on the ice that felt like it was borderline thawing so we had to be careful not to move too much. Sidenote: I promise I will never put you in harm’s way for the sake of a shot!!!
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I loved creating them!
