Bridal Fashion Photography ~ Rodney Smith

{photos by Rodney Smith}

My true love is photography. That is what 'sparked' me to Millie. My mother was spending so much money on photography and not getting the results she wanted. She is determined to offer her brides photos with good detail of the gowns (it drives her crazy in the bridal magazines when you can't see the fine detail on the dress). The problem is when you focus on the fine detail, you tend to lose the artistic image. My quest is to create a beautiful image without losing the fine detail. Is it possible??? I'm not sure.....but I'm going to try.

Looking for inspiration, I turned to the blogging world. Two of my favorite "Inspirational Blogs" are Black Eiffel and Perfect Bound. They both have mentioned the photographer Rodney Smith. So I had to go check him out.....and yes, he is amazing. I absolutely love his style. This is my kind of photography- real simple but 'oh so' chic which I feel is very Millie. Millie is also youthful, fun, and bold so we could go bright and colorful, too. Hmmmm........ so many choices...What do you think?

These are such beautiful images. As a photographer and a bride to be a really love them. Most bridal designer's photos are truly awful. Photographing white dresses is not easy and most photographers don't put much thought into the artistic image at all. These are lovely though!

Personally I always prefer black and white to colour, so much more classic!
