Aliena: Corsetry and More

01

Aliena is a stunning model, entering her senior year of college studying graphic design.  She began modeling as a child, and has continued to do so up through college.  Today she collects and models corsets, and has exceptional taste and class in wardrobe.  This shoot was especially fun not only because Aliena and I share an amazing artistic connection given our backgrounds, but also because I was photographing a beautiful woman modeling attire which I find outright breathtaking - I always have wished that corsets were more widely worn in our modern day; I think they are some of the most gorgeous garments a woman can wear, and I'm glad that there are still others who appreciate their sensual glamour.

Corsets of course aren't all we shot.  Aliena has a vast and classy wardrobe ranging from sweet to sultry.  Photos on the table started as as warm-up, but creatively became a story we fabricated about a girl mourning the death of her man.

Nick and Yasuko

Nick and Yasuko travelled from Japan to share their marriage with Nick's family in the United States, while hosting Yasuko's family who made the trip from Japan to join the celebration and congratulate the newlyweds. Nick and Yasuko both teach English classes to children in Japan, and quickly fell in love while teaching together. The couple also had a traditional wedding ceremony in Japan, where they have now returned to begin their lives together in marriage. Nick and Yasuko are very fun and easy-going, and were a blast to photograph! I know everyone will look back on their wedding for years to come, and here are some highlights of their big day!

All photos from Nick and Yasuko's wedding will be made available for viewing and print orders on my client site here.

Tim and Jennell (Sneak Peek)

I've wanted to start using the blog for quite a while now, and have put off doing so with the intention of accumulating several blog stories to post at once just to start things out... but, alas, time has not allowed for this, so I'm going to cut my losses, and begin posting here with just this first singular post, and I will quickly have other posts to fill the void.  It's time to stop putting it off. So without any more talk, here is a preview of newlywed Tim and Jennell's wedding.
