Let’s be honest… we have all thought it, dreamt it, worried about it, and even experienced anxiety about it! Our worst nightmare: to fall at a moment when we are all dressed up, trying to be pretty, sexy, elegant, handsome. That moment when it all comes crashing down, literally.
Mabel and Jeff wanted to create something silly and over the top for their wedding party photos. They loved the chase shot we did with the AT-AT’s and wanted something fun along those lines. We didn’t want to just repeat another chase shot, its been done and we are all for pushing the envelope creatively. When we saw the staircase at Arcadian Court, an idea was born. We knew, we had to do something crazy and funny with those stairs … and then it hit us. Let’s get slapstick about it! Let’s have the the whole bridal party falling down the stairs – let’s make it over the top. You don’t need a monster chasing you when you’ve got high heels and a steep staircase to master 🙂 We pitched the idea to Mabel and she LOVED it! So face first, down the stairs we positioned her over top of Jeff, screaming as if they had tripped over one another. The bridal party sold it with their facial expressions and attempts to save the bride.
What an epic way to start off the 2015 creative year. We hope we brought a little giggle to your day.
PS … and don’t worry Moms and Dads – we got plenty of romantic and traditional shots as well 🙂
