Styled Bridal Shooting {Colibita, Bistrita}


At the end of June me and a fellow photographer went to Colibita (a lake resort close to Bistrita) and took some pictures. Everyting begun with us wanting to make a styled bridal shoot, with everything from invitations to a wedding cake, but because of financial reasons (of course) and some lack of time and car we resorted to something that we could plan and do in a small amount of time. I spent a few hours searching for a wedding dress look alike in thrift shops, scouting for a location and picturing the perfect flower bouqet. I was lucky enough that my mother had a big garden filled with roses, so all I had to do was pick up some greenery and raid my mothers garden. So in a warm summer Sunday, Paul and Nico came to my house, I did something messy to Nicos hair, some natural make-up and headed to the lake (it`s about a 20-30 minute car ride from where I live). I knew there was an old abandoned house by the lake, so we stopped there, took the boxes filled with stuff out of the car (initially brought stuff for a table, but there was no table to be found,haha) and started shooting. Unfortunatelly there was still close to lunch time, so there wasn`t the light that I have imagined, but it was still a perfect oportunity to test my new lens.

I fell in love with the 35mm 1.4 from Sigma, but that`s another story for another time. Here is the final result from that shoot <3
