1930s Wedding Re-Creation (an attempt)

1930s Wedding Re-Creation (an attempt)
This entry is part 17 of 23 in the series Carondelet Historical Society Project

I had the privilege of getting to shoot dresses from a 1935 wedding! I used the help of a professional makeup and hair artist, and also borrowed a 1930s car. It was such fun to throw a pretend wedding without the stress of actually having real wedding. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

ZiZi made a great bride.

Nikki was the snotty little sister.

June Ann was the mother of the bride (in a dress that was labeled “Mother of the Bride, 1935).

Clay was the groom.

The models had never met before that day.

This was my first time shooting groups and one of the few times I’d shot people outdoors. Looking back, this isn’t my best photography work, but I don’t think I did bad either. I could just be self critical.

Below are my re-edits and what I think are the best pics from this unique retro shoot:
