Conceptual photography is some of the most fun work we get to do: it gives us the chance to really explore the looks we can achieve with lighting, style, and setting. And when we can share that with you through a creative portrait? Even better!
We had the chance to take things towards the dark side, when we got together with Annalee, Tony, and Marius for this Alternative-Bride theme. We had the talents of Sabrina Cayne with us for makeup and styling, and we took this shoot to a great location, as the sun was getting low in the sky. Shooting outdoors in such low light can yield some very cool looks, and the clouds in the sky that evening were an amazing fit with the moody feel of the concept.
And, yes, we can do shots like these, or something completely different, for you! Include makeup and hair in your portrait package, and we can create a great variety of looks. Add on a wardrobe stylist, and there’s a whole wealth of ideas we can mine.

Jen also provides full-service haircuts and color, so to learn more about her and schedule an appointment, just visit her website.
Credit is also due to our model for this look, Kira Distler, and the awesome makeup skills of Sabrina Cayne; their talents helped make this entire session amazing!

This week marks the launch of a new web site for betsy & iya jewelry, featuring the Fall 2008 campaign we shot in our studio. It was a hectic day of shooting, involving five talented models, each with their own unique before-and-after looks, the tireless work of a makeup artist and a hairstylist, all built around large, ornate, and amazing pieces of jewelry!
We had a great team that clicked wonderfully, so the creative energy flowed with incredible ease, and our models each did an amazing job of conveying their hilarious “before” looks, and their gorgeous “after” transformations. It was definitely one of the more fun ways we’ve spent an 8-hour day!
Here’s just one of the before-and-after sets we shot that day. It’s hard for us to choose a favorite, so you’ll likely be seeing more of these from us in the near future.
