More behind the scenes from a recent shoot for local dress designer, Tara LaTour

I prefer to work one on one. I don't like that feeling of someone looking over my shoulder as I experiment and try to create. BUT, often it takes a crew of people to pull something off. This shoot resembles that on a small scale. We used an expansive, new local venue (Machine Shop Minneapolis), the perfect HMU team (Julie Swenson & Melanie Rivers), top dress designer and her gang (Tara LaTour--Bridal couture for the cool kids), and a very patient and trusting model (Katie Lee from Ignite Models). If you see me in a photo it was taken by my amazing assistant, Josiah. Hope you enjoy these. I'll be posting my favorite photos from the shoot in the next post. Hope you all get some time to slow down and enjoy friends and family this week.
