Bridal fashion photography | vintage railway station
My mum always told me not to play on train tracks. Last week I did just that!
On a long car journey a photographer friend and I cooked up a plan to do a photo shoot at a vintage train station. It was just something we wanted to do. After all, play time is important – to develop your work and for the soul.
So between us we organised a model, dresses, a hair and make-up artist and of course a fabulous location. Some other photography nuts joined us for the shoot. There’s nothing that makes you think more than the friendly rivalry of a group of other photographers shooting alongside you!
We had a great day. Model Gabby was just brilliant. Sweet sixteen and as composed as a highly composed thing. Even when a steam train went thundering past billowing smoke, encasing her in steam and covering us all with soot! The driver, obviously put out that she wasn’t paying any attention to the train’s arrival, then pipped the whistle so hard we all jumped. Cue child-like giggles all round.
Here are some favourites. It’s not normally my thing to put a vintage toning on my pictures but it seemed to suit the occasion, so a few of these have a different look.
