Our Church Studio is still available as a venue for wedding ceremonies but this styled bridal shoot took place in our Drive-In photographic studio. Photographer Lindie Meyer took advantage of the seasonal nature of photography in Cape Town and how in winter you get the chance to sink your teeth into creative projects like this one.
Explaining the rationale behind the shoot Lindie said, “I got the idea for this shoot while browsing Pinterest and saw a beautiful editorial of a model wearing an over the top black wedding dress. I had the idea do a shoot with two very contrasting ‘personalities’ – The Dark Bride & The Blush Bride. Our dark bride is really edgy, and really doesn’t care about what is traditionally regarded as beautiful, she lives live to the beat of her own drum but doing it with such ease. Our blush bride, equally as beautiful takes trends and makes her wedding, her own. She loves gold, mint, coral and white. I wanted to shoot both brides on a very simple background, so that all elements of our shoots could stand out.”
Here are a selection of our favourites from the shoot and we think the results are stunning. To see more from this shoot visit Lindie Meyer Photographer and be sure to scroll down to the end for a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot and a list of all the people involved.
