Zinchuk Studios | Seattle Wedding Photographer + Cinematographer Vera contacted me back in July with an unusual request - after watching her sister Anna's Trash the Dress video, she knew she wanted something similar. But she didn't have a dress to trash--in fact, she'd never had a real wedding at all. Alex and Vera got married 5 years ago in a simple ceremony with family and friends. There was no white dress, no fanfare. But 5 years and 3 beautiful children later, she still held her dream of having great wedding photos and a fabulous video. And so we put our heads together and came up with an unforgettable photo/video shoot!
It was easy to work with Alex and Vera. They are so open and sincere--we felt like old friends fast! They completely trusted our vision and we followed their dreams. I knew Vera wanted two 'moods'--one vintage, one modern. She had the veils and props to go with. We had the locations--an empty monastary, wide beaches, and a fairytale forest.
