It’s no secret that I LOVE shooting editorial work — especially at Great Marsh Estate in Bealeton, VA! This venue is one that I have worked at many times in the past (Great Marsh wedding, Great Marsh maternity portraits, Great Marsh engagement photos) and always love returning to over and over again. I would never want editorials to be my “main” type of photography — I love couples and weddings way too much! — but it’s a fun break from the norm if that makes any sense. When I’m capturing an editorial I always want their to be a unique element — enter Condrea!
Condrea herself is one of the most stunning models I have had the opportunity to photograph! She was such a joy to work with and moved with such elegance and ease that I could’ve captured her for hours!
The first outfit that Condrea wore could’ve been perfect for a Great Marsh Estate wedding — it featured a lace bodice with a soft skirt. The skirt moved so elegantly that I had Condrea spin and twirl over a dozen times just to document the movement of this beautiful gown.
Next, Condrea changed into a complete showstopper — a blue-tiered tulle gown that simply took my breath away! This is one of those dresses that would “wear you” instead of the other way around on the wrong person — but not Condrea! It was as if this dress was made for her.
