Bridal Fashion Magazine

By Monday, March 19, 2012 1 Permalink 0

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.
