A Timely Tale To Tell

The story, a Gothic bride expectantly waiting for her groom at the church... and a groom who met his demise before he could get to her. In the end she is left all alone with her sorrow and wedding cake.

Here is a fashion shoot I recently shot and styled with a very talent makeup artist, and gorgeous Russian model Olyessia.

We found a Protestant church and an eerie graveyard to shoot in. It was a shoot with lots of creative collaboration. A little morbid yes, but I got to embrace my love of black clothes and loads of drama.
