Ever After Bridal Photoshoot | Metropolitan Building, NYC

  If you’ve been following our work this past year, you’d know that we have had the honor of working with the always amazing Jen from Ever After Bridal before and when she messaged us to ask if we wanted to be the photographers to bring her next styled shoot to life, we didn’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity! And boy, our new photoshoot was the complete opposite of the previous one! The last time we worked together, the Mayflower Grace contributed a soft, pure white background to the elegant and lovely nature of the wedding gowns. The photoshoot this past November at the famous Metropolitan Building in NYC, we were going for a staunch juxtaposition of grime and beauty which really made our lovely brides pop. The crudeness and mismatched nature of the 3rd floor provided the perfect location to show off the timeless elegance of these beautiful Veluz Reyes dresses!   This shoot was every photographer’s dream! We had a beautiful venue, a talented cake artist, an incredible florist and to top it all off, Jen invited the beautiful Kristen Taekman from the Real House Wives of New York City to model for us!

Style shoot | Veluz Reyes at the Mayflower Grace

As many of you know, the shiny, new Annandale Photography website just launched a few weeks ago! With this fresh start, we decided it would also be the perfect time to pick up blogging again! For our first post, we’ll be talking about our recent style shoot at the Mayflower Grace Inn and Spa in Washington, CT. Why Take on a Style Shoot? Now that the off season is upon us, it’s the perfect time to get creative! Kiva has always taken a shine to the talent and hard work that goes into catalogue work — Intricate indoor lighting setups, creating consistency in the photographic set and meticulous attention to detail is only scratching the surface of the challenges that go along with studio work. From watches to wardrobe, Kiva has always appreciated the dedication that goes into a product shoot and it’s not uncommon for a photographer to work all day to create the perfect photo for a single item or dress! If you’ve met Kiva, you’ll understand why he was so eager to jump right in! When we’re hired to photograph a wedding, our responsibility is to capture the day; every special little moment from the first curling iron […]

Flipside Burgers & Bar

This was a shoot that we did at Flipside Burger & Bar in Fairfield, CT. Stephanie Mccool set this whole thing up for us… booked the models, did the art direction, and made it all happen! Marc Rolleri, makeup and hair artist extraordinaire, was fantastic as always. Our model, Sheena Scivoletti (a bartender at the restaurant), completely rocked it!! Thanks also to David Ruzicka, from Fairy Tale Studios, for coming down and helping out. And a shout out to Tim, with his brute strength and manly soft box holding skills. Special thanks to Flipside Burger & Bar and Mike Baffa, who was also a big help with the shoot. If you want to meet Sheena in person and see some of this photography on the walls of the restaurant, head down to Flipside for the best burgers this side of Outer Space!! What happens at the end of the night… people start to get a little punchy!!!
