Filming this photo shoot was a thrilling experience! I had so much fun editing it to the music. Citygirl Weddings and Events & Urban Rootstock produced this amazing conceptual photo shoot at the great Chicago venue, ARTrevolution. Chicago’s premier wedding vendors united for this creative collaboration called “The Bold and the Blissful.”

Here is the description from Tuan H. Bui’s upcoming photography feature:

The Bold & The Blissful is a tribute to the soap opera, The Bold & The Beautiful, which first premiered in March 1987. Twenty-five years later, this photo shoot was taken in tribute of the show. The scene starts off with the Blissful, where the bride and groom are seen happy and in love. The dress is beautiful, the table settings are gorgeous, and she has the perfect husband— what more could a bride ask for? Well, a little peace and quiet perhaps; as we flash to the Bold, drama ensues. Why is the maid of honor so upset? Why is there food everywhere and the decor disheveled? The details of what happened during this tragically beautiful wedding reveal themselves through the photographs – look ahead for the entire story.

I was honored to be asked by Sharokina Pazand, owner of Citygirl Weddings & Events to film this photo shoot. The planning and design blew me away the moment I walked in the door. Check out the credits of the great folks involved in putting this artistic piece together.
