Since they first started, we’ve had a very close relationship with Jacki Allen’s Kentucky Bride magazine. We’ve had a number of weddings featured in there, and also done a bridal fashion shoot for them at the Castle Post in Versailles, as well as a floral shoot with E. Stephen Hein, Florist at his store. It shouldn’t be a surprise, I suppose, Jacki was literally the first person I met in the wedding industry here!
For the Winter issue of the magazine this year, Jacki, Julie and Jaimeson, the creative team at the magazine, brought me in to shoot a series of cakes from some of Kentucky’s best designers, plus a couple of cool accessories. If you’ve ever been to the Kentucky Bride offices, well, they’re in one of the usual office parks that are great for getting work done, but they’re definitely not a commercial photography studio.
What to do? We set up our own studio, right in the foyer of the building. (There may or may not have been fire codes broken.) I set up backgrounds, flew studio lights sitting out in the parking lot through windows to simulate window light, and we had a lot of fun.
