Juno: a goddess in the garden

This is the individual photoshoot I did of Vanessa looking simply stunning in the Juno dress after last Saturday’s talk. She looked fabulous, it was so fun to have the time to hang out with her, and, for just that final bit of awesomeness, she brought along the amazing Shona of In the Heyday, giving me the opportunity to get to know one of my vintage idols.  So exciting!

The raspberry swirl gown got its first showing ever at this event, though I need to finish the bertha. There were four different cameras in use, so a great deal of interactions and formal and informal posing was captured. I mainly got formal, posed, images of single models, but I love the shots that other photographers got of groupings.
