Bridal fashion week is in full swing now. I'll be covering backstage, presentations and runway for Harper's Bazaar.
When I was in college, I took a summer internship at Harper's Bazaar. I worked in the Photo Department helping put together inspiration boards, location scouting, gathering props for shoots etc. I had no idea that one day I would be able to say I am one of those photographers.
It's always surreal seeing my work published, but even more so this time because it hits so close to home. I had the most amazing summer working for Harper's. I met one of my closest friends to date in that intern corner office. Harper's was also the main reason I switched my focus to fashion photojournalism. Prior to that summer, I imagined myself being more of a photojournalist covering stories for Getty or the NYT. I always had a love for the fashion world, but was still insure how I could intertwine my skills as a journalist with the high end glamour world.
Marchesa was my first show of the week. Flowers were being ushered into Canoe Studios-high on the 14th floor. Models waited patiently to have their hair braided into some magical up do that looks like something you would spend hours watching a YouTube video of and in the end still not get it even close.
Watching the girls grace the hallways of the studios making their way to their designated podiums for the presentation felt like a dream. Editors not holding macaroons and champagne in their the hands were snapchatting stories of bridal bliss.
