Firstly, thanks to Touchaingkong Yang for connecting me with the amazing Darly Vu. He had first photographed her designs for the TET Fashion Show and when I saw his photos, I told him I wanted to photograph her pieces too. It took a good 2-3 months to actually finally connect but when we connected, we were able to plan for the shoot.
Although I've seen the designs through Touchaing's photos, seeing the designs in person after watching Wonder Woman, I fell in love with the designs which instantly reminded me of Wonder Woman. So after pointing out the ladies reminded me of the amazons, they started channeling their inner Wonder Woman.
Originally I had planned for a behind the scenes, but I forget about video work when I'm photographing so I just ended up throwing this little piece together. Side note: I'm still practicing with the video portion of my blogs...not doing too well because I forget about it unless I have an assistant helping me record the behind the scenes footages but enjoy!
Darly and I basically freaked out about the weather a good two weeks before the day of the shoot but thankfully mother nature was on our side! My original location didn't work out since it was too steep and well, not convenient at all but luckily Touchaing's location worked out beautifully. I was personally nervous because this was such a large group and I have never worked with a fashion group this large but they were so nice and talk about smooth!! I did very little work with directing, they were so amazing that I pretty much became trigger happy (which just means I had about 1000 photos to look through).
Here are some of the BTS photos ~ scroll all the way down for the final products from this shoot.
