Cassie Jones Photography wanted to astound her audience at her first bridal expo with a photo shoot that showed off a modern feel of chic fashion, yet infuse the shoot with a rustic and classic feel. After finding inspiration in a local downtown area of Arkansas, the photographer (Cassie Jones herself) took advantage of the familiar location to create some unconventional contrasts of light and dark, vintage and modern.
The Binkley couple modeled with a body language that exuded comfort, with many intimate, close shots of the married couple hugging and kissing. But Cassie Jones Photography also took some shots of the couple in more model-esque poses with the bride putting only her arm or elbow against the groom–a more edgy take on traditional wedding photo shoots. Cassie Jones Photography also contrasted this chic model feel against a dilapidated and almost grungy backdrop, creating a unique brand of beauty in the contradiction.
The photographer also employs high contrast in lighting to really make the bride’s vintage pearls, veil, and hair piece shine against the dark background. And instead of using a traditional black suit that could blend the lines of the groom against the background, his navy suit and bright tie stand out. The lines in these photo compositions are clear and defined, following a trendy high definition look, and the bold silhouette of the couple is never lost.
