Ultimate Bridal Wedding Cover Shoot

This past year was my 3rd year second shooting weddings for Popik Photography. It has been valuable experience learning from such a gracious and established Wedding photographer here in Grande Prairie, and without that time investment and guidance I could not have made the decision that I did this past year to start out on my own for weddings in 2014. To kick things off I thought I would make a submission into Ultimate Bridal Magazine Cover contest, but since I had no weddings of my own to draw from I had to basically create one. I set out and contacted some great local businesses and pitched my idea and got some great support. The amazing dress and accessories we used was courtesy of Calista’s Career and Bridal , the beautiful bouquet was done by Grower Direct Flowers & Gifts and My outstanding hair and makeup team of Ange Simpson from Helios Salon and Spa  and Angelina Costa (Makeup Artist) .  

The day came together just like a normal wedding day as my Hair and Makeup team arrived early in the morning at my models home and started their work, I arrived shortly after them once I had picked up the dress, accessories and bouquet.  Once The lovely Lauren was pampered and set we headed off to our first location.  A big thank you to Pomeroy Inn and Conference Centre for allowing us to shoot in their lobby for our first location.  We were met there by fellow Photographer David from Silver Creek Images who was my assistant for the day (You Will catch him in one of the shots later). We set up the lights and staged the location and worked through a few shots and then packed up and ran to our next location.

The next Location was the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie where we had prearranged access to shoot in the gallery that day. The gallery is a diverse space and allowed us two different setups for shooting allowing more variety in our looks.

I want to thank again Raven Strid from Calista’s Career and Bridal, all the staff at Grower Direct Flowers and Gifts, my amazing team of Ange, Angelina and David and most of all Lauren for being the centre of all this attention and giving me and excellent model for my  submission. Make sure to check out the links above to all of the pages from the people who were apart of this shoot. Also congratulations goes to Martine Martell who actually did win the cover image for 2013 Ultimate Bridal Magazine make sure you get your copy at various locations throughout the Peace Country.
