Bridal Parade IV in Moscow (UPDATE)

The greatest opportunity for a wedding photographer to take stunning shots – it was Bride Parade 4 in Moscow. I'd been so much encouraged by the forthcoming event that was willing to shoot with Hensel studio light. So I did. A bit less than a half of the pics were shot with two human-height soft-boxes to the left and right. I tell you I wish Hensel gear could slenderize to make my wish of lugging it around real weddings come true. God, I'm quite smitten with the outcome I got (thus I confess, it was my first time utilizing fully-featured studio light at open-air venues lol). I'm seriously thinking of engaging King Kong as a servant - who else would handle it with a wet finger? :)

Парад Невест 4 в Москве.
Вот уже четвертый раз подряд в Москве прошел Парад Невест®. Огромная благодарность автору и организатору Парада, свадебному фотографу Екатерине Алешинской за предоставленную десяткам фотографов возможность поснимать это невероятное празднество. Творческие идеи, реализованные на параде - невероятные наряды невест, вырывающиеся за рамки традиционных белых платьев, по счастью уже сейчас становятся новой тенденцией в свадебной моде. Невеста - королева праздника, и она вольна делать то, что ей пожелается. И пусть ее пожелания будут дерзкими, яркими, противоречивыми, лишь бы не ограничивались общественными барьерами, в быту прикрываемыми благородным словом "традиции". Я очень на это надеюсь!

Несколько фото с Парада в моем исполнении.


























The Mistress of the Parade - Catherine Alechinsky. A bit tired and thinking over "what's next?" I supposse :)
Хозяйка Парада - Катрин Алешинская. Призадумалась...

Arthur, Dude, these images are AWESOME. You did a great job, I'm sure King Kong would be honor to carry your lights around for you. Where were these images shot at,some of the setting almost looks tropical, and I see a helipad.

Rob, thanks for appreciation! The parade took place at "Malibu" entertaining center, in point of fact - a yacht club (you can see one at the backgronud). As it follows from the name - it's stylized with palms & other tropic staff ('course it's fake). As regards helipads - it's for "special guests" you know lol.
