So what are Mermaids made out of? Gems, mesh, twine, and a TON of gold glitter! Last week I got to make my very own custom mermaids for a water themed shoot I've been planning. Erin, Mikayla and Remi met me at Grapevine lake to get a little whimsical. We were lucky enough to have Lindsey from Luxe Looks on site to do the amazing sea inspired make up. A huge thanks to Carey, Kate and Robin for all the help and support through out the day. Plus all the wonderful behind the scenes photos!
They say that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. If that is the case, Jason and Vanessa are in for years and years of good luck. It was wet, muddy, and hot, but it was also one of the best weddings I've ever been to. I would compare it to a music festival set to the tune of love. By the end of the ceremony Vanessa's dress looked like it had been dip dyed from the shins down. Jason was sporting rolled pants and converses equally mud covered. This of course made for excellent photos. I'm so happy to share some of my favorite moments from such a truly happy celebration. Congratulations Jason and Vanessa! Wishing you an eternity of big smiles and great memories. Thank you so much for letting me capture your special day!
So about a year or so ago this photo got leaked onto Pinterest and went viral. Since then I've had countless people contact me wondering how you create this photo. So I figured I'd give you guys a quickie tutorial on how to make this super easy frame-in-frame photo.
A few things to remember before taking your photos:
-Size of the frame - This will come in handy during editing.
-Be sure to hold the frame according to how you are shooting the photos. For example; if you take a portrait shot (vertical), make sure everyone is holding the frame like a portrait.
-Ask each person holding the frame to try to keep their fingers clear of the inside of the frame. This makes editing so much faster.
You will take each person's photo while they hold the empty frame except the person who will be in the last frame. In my photo this was the toddler, Sofia. Sofia didn't need to hold a frame because obviously she is the last in the row. I actually ended up using a quick snapshot we got later in the day. You can use any photo you want here.
Once you pick out your photos you should be looking at something like this. The next step is just a simple copy and paste act in Photoshop. As long as you crop each photo to the size of the frame before copying it you should able to create your final image within minutes.
Hope this helps everyone who has been wanting to try this! Let me know if you have any questions!
There is so much to do and see and photograph. How will we ever manage to capture it all?
