More Petal Passion: Exclusive Bonus Images from Spring Bridal Fashion Shoot

23 Apr

Thanks to the work of my fabulous cast & crew, there were so many pictures from this spring fashion shoot for Absolute Brighton magazine – featuring a quirky colourful polka dot bridal frock and a variety of candy-coloured bridesmaids’ dresses that it was hard to choose just 9 for the final layout.  So I thought I’d share a few bonus shots.  Here are some of my favourites:

An Easter Sneak Preview – Behind the Scenes of a Spring Floral Fantasy

1 Apr

Fashion Photographer Brighton | Erika Szostak

For the past month and a half I’ve been dying to share the photos I produced for my very first fashion cover and editorial (8 pages!) for the April issue of Absolute Brighton magazine, showcasing dresses by Oh My Honey, jewellery by Jeremy Hoye and Baroque, shoes by Irregular Choice, floral set design by Wookie Flowers and the hair and makeup talents of Susan Bond & Cornelia Page. Models Dolly Diamond & KT Greener were total troopers modeling light spring frocks in freezing Feburary – wait til you see how calm and collected they look despite the frigid temperatures that day! I still can’t share everything as the magazine isn’t out yet, but publication date is just one day away now – keep your eyes peeled around town tomorrow! – so what I can do is give just a glimpse of what we got up to with a few behind-the-scenes shots by my wonderful assistant Mark Liddell.

Wedding Photographer London: As Seen in Vogue, April 2013

20 Mar

I could scream.  I could jump out of my seat & around the room with excitement.  My heart could pound out of my chest. It may be just a little bitty picture & a little bitty mention at number 11 on the list, but guess what, we’re in Vogue!  What magazine would you be most excited about appearing in?London Wedding Photographer | PhotoMadlyMany thanks to my lovely clients Sarah & Sam for allowing me to use their photograph for the magazine.
