In just 45 minutes we were able to capture some epic photos with Monika and Davis up in Winter Park. They live in Denver, but wanted snow and water in their photos...unfortunately the creek we trekked to was completely iced over and covered in almost a metre of snow! Nevertheless the sun came through for some classic Colorado scenery. I'm SO excited to shoot their wedding. x
Blogger Bhakti Fawn and music producer BLISSS are a power couple with matching tattoos and septum rings to boot. They just returned from a trip around the world, where they collected forearm ink on the US Pacific coast, engagement rings in Thailand, and a stick-and-poke on Bhakti's middle finger done with a traditional bamboo stick.
It was SO HARD to cull images from this shoot yesterday as I used some new posing techniques and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. These guys are getting 150 images from about an hour's worth of shooting - much more than I used to deliver, but a few new tricks in my book are doing my assistant and me good.
It's been a while. If you've been following this blog for a few years, and saw my move to Colorado, you might have seen this pivot coming. I've redirected Not So Naked to chanelleleslie.com, and I'll be showcasing my photo work more than anything else here from now on - hopefully on a more regular basis than the past couple of years have offered. I'm focusing more heavily on offering wedding and engagement work, mostly just because that allows me to take advantage of the gorgeous wilderness around here more often, but also because the club and fashion work I was doing in Adelaide just doesn't have a natural home in Denver. It is, after all, the middle of the USA.
With these mountains, forests and lakes, though...I can't say I'm missing the clubs. I'll keep you posted. Music photography to come!
