Sometimes I feel I do not express my gratitude enough. Karina and Michael always welcome us to their home in Chicago…. They are such wonderful hosts… so much so that I have pondered living in Chicago. Michael, Karina, and I tossed around the idea of doing a “Trash the Dress” session for a little while now. This past weekend worked flawlessly! You see, Matt Bigelow , an amazing fashion photographer in Chicago, was looking to do some video work. He wanted to shoot a photographer doing their thing. Since, I was going to do my thing in Chicago… and he was already in that area doing his thing… I thought… Hey! He can shoot my… *pause* session… We met up with Matt at a Caribou Coffee (I’m from Michigan… Caribou coffee is my starbucks). He had a good vibe… But I have to admit… I was a little nervous. I am not used to being in front of the camera. He was very ninja like and stayed away. The angles he found were phenomenal. I am super excited to see what he came up with.

I would also like to add that Matt and Michael are both off-camera-flash-guys (it’s a guy thing.. all that technical stuff)… I am an available light kinda girl. I very rarely use a flash to keep that vintage box camera feel. My style will someday fizzle and the off camera, high fashion, flash will soon become something I need to get comfortable with. Matt was gracious enough to give me some pointers and took me out of my comfort zone for a single shot before being escorted off of private property. I will work on it Matt. You’ll see…
I can’t wait to see Matt’s video!

    So awesome, thank you so much! Thank you for letting me sneak along side you guys while you shot, I had a blast.

    GREAT work you created here, I love them all. I was so interested to see what you would pull from it, as its always such a mystery not seeing through the same lens as the other. Very impressed.

    Keep on keepin on.
