Behind the Scenes – Sepia Wedding Ideas in Bridal Guide Magazine

I’ve been waiting a long, long time to share this project with the world.  This funny thing happens in the publishing world…it requires patience – something we all don’t have too much of these days, myself sometimes included.   Having your work featured in a print magazine requires an insane amount of patience but as an artist I have to tell you nothing beats seeing your work on the glossy pages of a national magazine.  Experiencing the evolution of an idea from its original spark to full blown professional images is quite the privilege and I am grateful.  We capped off last week with a sneak peek at our cover editorial for Destination I Do Magazine (on newsstands February 18th)and this week we received word that our Sepia Art Shoot originally created in…wait for it… fall of 2012!!! was on newsstands in the latest issue of Bridal Guide Magazine!  So today I’m finally sharing a peek of our Sepia Wedding Ideas….just a peek though, more to come.

I’ve been enthralled with Sepia since college…since the first time I picked up a piece of Sepia hued charcoal for my first figure drawing class.  Its rich tone is neither muddy or heavy but still intense and powerful.  Neither brown nor red, it meets the eye somewhere in the middle of a rosey amber glow that is nothing short of enchanting.  As for photography Sepia conjures images of a bygone era’s slim smiles of women dressed is ruffles and rhinestones.
