Engrande: Basic Photography and Openshoot

Circumstances behind the camera lens took me to an Engrande experience behind a veil.

What a wonderful opportunity for first timers and amateurs to practice and hone their craft in photography through an open shoot. It was a privilege not only for my mother’s gowns to be featured but also for I myself to model a few of her finest works.  On a personal note, portraying and modeling as a bride was a different story.

Some photographers called out to place a veil on me and I was slightly taken aback with their request. Not that I was hesitant, but I was up to portray someone about to happily tie a knot. I’m not in love as of the moment so I wondered how I could seem to appear as if I were really in love. Overall, it was a cool experience being behind that veil, taking a hold of a small bouquet and to play pretend. 😛 Love will come around my corner, eventually.

Here are some of the photos and personal favorites I obtained from the photographers that participated in the workshop. No photos have been added filter from the original files sent and submitted to me not unless stated.
