Black Swan Inspired Wedding ShootOut Now: Fall Winter 2017 Edition

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 3, 2017

Danielle Lucier is both a talented photographer and an avid daydreamer; she uses daydreams to calm her mind amidst tight deadlines and stressful moments, and also to let her creativity run free. During one particular late-night editing session, she found herself distracted by a video of Swan Lake. She envisioned a serene pond in the early morning mist, heard the rustling of tall grass and trilling of birds, and felt dawn’s first rays on her face. She imagined dancing along the water’s edge and running her fingers through the fog, watching it dissipate into nothingness.

The pale blue walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and myriad of textures and colours in the intricate décor of the Wedgewood Room beautifully represented the dream-like pond of our Black Swan cover shoot. Accents in shades of black and white mirrored the concept of duality that Danielle found most inspiring. She captured the internal conflict between light and dark, movement and stillness, and showed “that both can be beautiful and that they can meld together.”

Our Fall Winter 2017 issue will be on stands at Chapters and Indigo from mid August until mid January 2018. You can also order a copy online.

Pinning Down LoveThe Need For More Diversity In The Wedding Industry

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on January 23, 2017

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.
