Chanticleer Brides – Two days in Bristol shooting the Urban Angel collection.
I can’t tell you the anticipation that was building in September, watching the weather forecast.  Talking to Kate at Chanticleer every other day.  Mapping out my route to sunny Bristol, packing WARM clothes, comfy shoes and thick socks, a camping chair (yes really).  I was looking forward to stellar coffee from the restaurant around the corner.  I was excited to work with two amazing new models, Victoria and Nancy, oh such sweet faces!  The Urban Angel collection shoot was coming together perfectly.
The Grafitti was beckoning, my pinterest inspiration board was ready and I had poured over body shapes and lighting ideas.  I was READY, directing voice practised yet inside I was nervous.  Shooting a bridal collection for a designer is a huge responsibility, one I never take lightly.  This is a seasonally tradition of gargantuan proportions, one which can make a season successful for a design house.  Your images part of every marketing campaign, the website, the social media.  Shared with stockists, blogs and magazines.  HOW bloody exciting, I LOVE this type of work, I ADORE IT.  It makes my blood pump, my heart race and the smile on my face HUGE.
Tracey is a perfectionist, Kate a delightful styling talent (I get to shoot her wedding later this year, EEK).  I was working with the wonderfully talented, brilliantly lovely and hilarious Sasha Pallari… daughter of the invincible Tracey Pallari – both make up artists extraordinaire.
