Queen of the Factory
With the NotWedding just weeks away, I wanted to give you another little glimpse at this year’s gorgeous NotWedding couple. This bridal shoot proves you really can find beauty in even the most dilapidated of places. Joe’s concept with this shoot is marvelous – I’m so excited to see more from this guy!
Fashion photography has always been a secret passion of mine so I decided to go with a high-fashion shoot based on Andy Warhol’s muse, Edie Sedgewick. Andy named her the “Queen of the Factory” in that her beauty, and overall essence, captivated his factory studio. Edie was a true light in a dark place, and darkness always seemed to find her…this, however doesn’t negate the fact that her beauty and innocence always shined within the shadows.
The concept was easy…take a gorgeously styled bride and place her in harsh/dilapidated surroundings and let her beauty and soul take the reins.
