These three stunning girls are what I like to call Wish Reps. A Wish Rep is a high school senior who represents Wish Photography at their high school.
When it was time to schedule these three Reps I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I told them “I want to create something whimsy and soft. Think perfume ads.” I knew I wanted to use as much light as I could in camera and during the post processing.
When it comes to styling the shoot I first tell the clients what I am envisioning. I encourage them to bring a variety of clothing including pieces that can be layered as well as accessories. Mixing and matching textures makes me happy. It keeps the photograph interesting and inspires the viewer. I am not afraid to mix textures, patterns and to layer necklaces, bracelets and rings.
With every shoot I go into I have a plan on how I want the finished product to be. I gathered my inspiration from pretty perfume ads then made it my own without making it literal. Don’t be afraid when your inspiration takes a different turn just like this shoot did not end up being what a fragrance campaign might look like, the concept gave me the drive to create something beautiful.
During the post process I really try to make the colors a little richer, the light brighter and the overall feel a little whimsy.
I used my Canon 5D Mark II and my 85mm 1.8 lens.
After this shoot I made sure to include bug spray in my camera bag.
