design3-e1401425522541-1024x272 This boho vintage styled shoot featuring a Mexican wedding dress caught our eye and we are so excited to feature Forum Member,  Meredith Ryncarz of Memories by Mere Photography !

 Memories by Mere Photography | Blog | Facebook 

Inspiration:  I love to go searching for treasures at local thrift shops and antique stores.  I found this dress for $15 and pulled the rest of the items from my home and the brides wedding shoes and decorations.

Equipment:  Shot with a D7000 17-55mm/ 2.8 lens and a diffuser.

Concept or Style Collaboration:  Jennifer had offered to model for me at one point and I knew this dress would fit her perfectly.  We collaborated on the shoot together, bringing jewelry, curtains, and decorations from our own homes to pull the look together based on the dress itself.

Editing:  I used Florabella’s Colorplay Actions to alter the color slightly.

Favorite thing about  this session:  Creating a look based on one inspirational article of clothing was a blast and really made me think more creatively.  I look forward to shooting more sessions like this because they truly reenergize me.
