Vintage Wedding Shoot with Ophelia Photography

On January 21,2010 I did a calibration with Vancouver Wedding Photographer Lisa Gratton.  Lisa bought a vintage wedding gown months before from GT Antiques and Collectables (formally know as Gramma’s Trunk in Port Alberni,BC) and had a vision of recreating the perfect bridal editorial shoot.  For more information about Lisa Gratton, check out her site at Ophelia Photography.

It was an amazing January day, the perfect weather, lighting and locations (Moss Bay Cemetery and Dallas Road, Victoria, BC). Corrie our exquisite model/muse captivated the shoot with her natural beauty. As Lisa quoted "She is pure magic"

Recreating Corrie's look using MAC makeup.
Skin: Face and Body, Mineralized Skinfinish Powder and select cover-up
Brows: Spiked Brow Pencil and Clear Brow Set
