This retro tropical wedding is cool with a capital “c” and it has everything to do with the creatives behind it. They took a vision and created a retro tropical industrial fusion shoot with color and style like you wouldn’t believe. Michelle Larmand captured all these great shots which you can find in a spread in our Spring Summer 2017 issue. Check out the acknowledgments below for more local talent!
One day Buffy Goodman entered “wedding dress” into the search bar on Pinterest just to see what would come up. As a wedding photographer, she talks with couples constantly and knows almost all of them have used the site for wedding inspiration or created their own page.
As she scrolled through hundreds of photos of women in white dresses, Buffy grew frustrated at the lack of diversity. “I had to scroll down through 160 photos to find a single person of colour,” she said. “I didn’t see one plus-size bride in this search.”
She switched gears and searched “wedding photo” in hopes of finding more variation in her own field, but again with disappointing results. “My eyes actually blurred a little as I scrolled past identical-looking photos of thin, white heterosexual couples.” The photos were pretty, but also pretty boring.
Inspiration struck and Buffy organized a photo shoot to celebrate the beautiful diversity of love and marriage regardless of size, ethnicity or sexual orientation. The results are fresh, gorgeous and beyond Pinterest-worthy.
Some of you may have never heard of a pop-up wedding. Let us fill you in! Pop-Up weddings are perfect for couples who don’t have the cash or for couples with other priorities, such as; travel, buying a home, starting a family etc. And because not all of us enjoy wedding planning, they are a great option for couples who don’t want to invest up to a year orchestrating an event.
