I love magazines…with the exception of 99% of wedding magazines. For over fifteen years I photographed weddings. During this time, I would pick up wedding magazines to see what was new and quickly learned…nothing was new. All the wedding magazines look alike. And, if I see one more 15 year old girl modeling a wedding gown, I’m going to scream. A few years back I got completely fed up and decided that instead of complaining, I’d do something about it. Almost two years ago I created my own online wedding magazine called IZZY.I loved everything (ok, getting advertisers stinks) about the magazine. Creating it was some of the most fun I’ve ever had and the hardest work. I loved it.
Unfortunately, right after the magazine launched it’s first issue, I got sick. Really sick. For almost 2 years. I couldn’t work and had to shut down the magazine. It was a very, very hard decision.
Now, when I look at the magazine, I smile. I created something really beautiful and other people enjoyed it too. And, I got to create gorgeous images for the magazine. Below you will find ten pages from the magazine. I had so much fun shooting the fashion spreads for IZZY. In the future, I hope to do more bridal fashion photography. And, who knows, maybe someday I’ll start another magazine…you never know.0
