FAIRY TALE WEDDING PORTRAITS - A BINDING OF PEOPLE, PLACE, AND DREAMS!

December 30, 2017

LOCAL ABANDONED GRAIN MILL PROVES TO BE A MAGICAL LOCATION FOR A FAIRY TALE WEDDING-GOWN PHOTOSHOOT!

 

YOU CAN'T MISS THEM:  THE LONG-CLOSED COLLINGWOOD, ONTARIO, CANADA, GRAIN TERMINALS ARE A FORMIDABLE SIGHT WHEN DRIVING ALONG THE WATERFRONT .

 

THEY HAVE ALWAYS SPURRED INTRIGUE IN ME.  PERHAPS BECAUSE THEY ARE ABANDONED, TO AN EXTENT. 

 

IT IS AS IF THEY STAND AS A TESTAMENT TO A MORE YOUTHFUL TIME OF BUSTLING ACTIVITY AND ENERGY. BUT NOW, AS THEY AGE, THEY NO LONGER SERVE A USEFUL PURPOSE. 

 

PERHAPS THEY ALSO STAND AS A REMINDER OF THE CHANGES IN OUR LIVES, OUR MOVEMENT FROM YOUTH TO ADULTHOOD, AND ONTO THE FINAL STAGES OF LIFE. 

 

WHILE THEY NO LONGER SERVE A PRACTICAL PURPOSE, THEY EMBODY STRENGTH, KNOWLEDGE, AND STABILITY.

 

THESE ARE THE TOOLS NEEDED TO MAKE A COMMITMENT. 

 

THE PILLARS OF A MARRIAGE.

 

PILLARS ARE NOTED THROUGHOUT HISTORY AND LITERATURE TO REPRESENT MANY THINGS:

 

                                               STABILITY

                                  THE PATH TO WISDOM

                             ONE'S SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

  MARKING AN IMPORTANT PASSAGE TOWARD THE UNKNOWN

 

A PILLAR HAS MANY ADJECTIVES IN MERRIAM-WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY:

 

                                         SUPPORTING

                                STRENGTHENING

                                   FUNDAMENTAL

                                       INTEGRAL

                                          SOLID

 

I COULD NOT THINK OF A MORE FITTING PLACE TO SHOOT A WEDDING GOWN PORTRAIT!!

 

 

WHILE THE TEMPERATURE THIS DECEMBER DAY WAS FRIGID, MY MODEL PERSEVERED.  NOTABLY, A PILLAR OF STRENGTH HERSELF.  YOU MAY ASK WHY MY MODEL IS NOT SMILING.  BESIDES THE FACT THAT IT'S -15C OUTSIDE, WE DON'T ALWAYS NEED OUR MODELS TO SMILE. THAT IS NOT REAL LIFE. WHILE SHE MAY BE EMBARKING ON A HAPPY EVENT, THERE REMAIN A LOT OF UNKNOWNS AND, SHALL I SAY, 'CONTEMPLATIVE 'EXPRESSIONS ARE NOT UNCOMMON!

 

 

 

IN THESE PORTRAITS I WANTED TO REPRESENT THIS STRUCTURE, NOT JUST AS A FORMIDABLE AND STABLE BUILDING, BUT AS A MAGICAL PLACE.  A PLACE THAT NOT ONLY HAD A MYSTERIOUS PAST, BUT A PLACE THAT ALSO HAD A PROMISING FUTURE.  A PLACE THAT COULD REFLECT WHAT MARRIAGE SHOULD REPRESENT.  I ALSO WANTED THE BRIDE TO CONNECT WITH THIS PLACE.  A PLACE WHERE SHE COULD EMBRACE ALL THAT STRENGTH AND MYSTERY, AS SHE TAKES A STEP INTO THE UNKNOWN. A PLACE WHERE SHE COULD FIND SOLACE WITHIN HER OWN HOPES AND DREAMS. DREAMS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN HIDDEN LOCKED WITHIN HER HEART.

 

 

MAY SHE UNLOCK ALL THE FANTASIES THAT HER CHILDHOOD FAIRY TALES PROMISED!!
