A few weeks ago I volunteered to shoot a fashion show for charity.  It was sooooo fun and I can’t wait to do it again!  It was especially fun to edit.  I wanted the vibe to be edgy and sexy so I color graded it to have a cooler more filmic look.  Super fun! Anyway, instead of trying to explain this event, I copy and pasted the text from Wildflower’s blog here:

“Youngsong Martin, owner and principal designer of Wildflower Linen has done it again with another successful fashion runway show, taking place in Orange County, CA for guests of the Women of Chapman organization.

Nearly 70 seats were filled for an afternoon of fabulous decor, amazing food and a special treat as they witnessed  gorgeous models wearing dozens of different designer dresses created by Youngsong Martin.  The Wildflower Linen Fashion Runway Show began 2 years ago and continues to be a highlight for event functions and fundraisers.  It wouldn’t be significant without its signature concept; every model is “draped and pinned” with an ACTUAL table linen or chair cover that would otherwise be used as a rental for an event.   Models not only have 2 minutes between walks to get dressed, but Youngsong must also pin and prep them for stage…. from Table Linen straight into Dress Linen, literally.   It’s a feat that we must say even the top designers in the nation would have a hard time topping.  You thought 24 hours was difficult to make a dress, try a few minutes!  Move over Project Runway and make room for Wildflower Linen – YSM’s Runway!

Well after a quick website brand refresh today, the next step it to re-do the blog!  That’s one of the reasons I haven’t been posting as much.  But alas… I know I should.

So here is a little treat for you today.

Below this post you’ll see the wedding I filmed in Florence last Oct.  The same week I shot that wedding, I also shot this Save The Date film for an awesome couple who is getting married this July in California.  It was SOOO fun.  This couple has so much style and it was so fun to work with them.  We did almost crash the boat once but other than that… it was an awesome experience.  Dying to get to Lake Como again because I was literally only there for 24 hrs!

Enjoy!
