I Remember You | NWA Fashion Week Editorial

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 11.04.02 AM

When I’m filming a wedding, the stories are there for the taking. Two people bringing their histories and joining together to make a future. Love and friendship. Overcoming obstacles for the sake of living life with the one you love. So many stories come out on a wedding day.

 

But with fashion and art videos, I want there to be an underlying story as well. That’s how I decide how to shoot, how to color, what song becomes the soundtrack, etc.

 

So when we walked in to MOD to shoot for NWA Fashion week and I saw RJ and Alexis dressed to kill in clothes from Lola and The Independent Denim and Essentials, I knew where we were heading.

“I’ll love you, but just this twice”–Atticus

These two are “those people” to each other. The ones you can’t help but love. The person that we just can’t seem to make “not again” stick. They try so hard to keep the walls up, but what happens after an evening of resisting? Well, that’s for the end of the video and your imagination.

Melissa + Jordan | Missouri Wedding Video

Melissa found us while planning her wedding from Orlando, Florida, and we’re so glad she did! I walked in to the warmest greeting, a room full of girls reliving some hilarious college memories, and underneath it was this sweet sense of excitement coming from Melissa. Jordan had filled her room with sweet notes so the anticipation of seeing each other that day was palpable.

Then came time for the wedding, the slight drizzle didn’t stop them from having a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Friends read excerpts to them to remind them to stay grounded and committed to the love and friendship they were committing to that day. Melissa read a journal entry from the day they met while performing on a cruise ship-and that day she had written that Jordan was going to change her life. Through their own words, they promised to love each other forever, to stay committed to growth and adventures, and to always be the best of friends. With the support of the village of people surrounding them, and so much joy on their faces, they were pronounced man and wife.

Then they danced the night away surrounded by family and friends from all over before they rode of in to the night (Can we all just stop and appreciate the fact that Melissa drove? Because I loved it.)

 

So, here’s our highlight video of Melissa and Jordan’s romantically grey (but not gloomy), Missouri wedding day:

FreeRide has a special place in my heart. It’s where I spend part of my mornings. It’s where I find myself getting stronger and faster physically while the dark room and loud music gives my mind space to work out as well. It’s where I’ve found some of the strongest and most supportive women out there. It’s a safe place, and the energy you get from clipping your shoes on to a bike that goes nowhere is one that can’t be beat.

 

So I was obviously thrilled when they asked me to capture what I love about the studio. See for yourself the energy and power coming from those on the bikes, and the instructors pushing you to be stronger for yourself in that dark room so you can be stronger for everyone else when you leave it.

It’s also been a fun bonus to be asked to help them capture images for their social media posts every month, so check out their instagram!

Rachel + Corey 2

 

Rachel and Corey wouldn’t let the rainy spring weather darken their day. They embraced it and it made the perfect atmosphere for their sweet day surrounded by their family and friends.

 

Rachel and Corey are that couple that you can tell have such a strong friendship underneath their love. It’s shown in the way they look at each other during their ceremony, and when he wipes her tear? That’s the stuff that makes life in love so, so good.

Brief Pause | Fashion Editorial Video

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 9.02.36 AM

There’s that moment–right between winter and spring– where the world is deciding if it wants to wake up. To bring forth life and color is a lot of work, and sleepy winter just wants to hit snooze. 10 more minutes. But the green and the growth push forward.

 

That’s the moment we filmed this. That brief pause between being asleep and awake.

 

Becca, Tanja, Antonella and I were working on something else (something special that will remain a secret for a few more seasons), but we took advantage of the moment and with Becca’s styling and a few pieces from Grey Dog, we made a separate piece of magic.
