A Cinematography Post! Vintage Themed Styled Shoot

Hi Hi Hi! Today's post is exciting for me as after a very long time I am finally releasing the video I shot and edited from a styled shoot that I planned and organized along with my friend Husaina from HBaraya Photography.  We had a very talented team of vendors and team members come together to bring the shoot to life and I have to give them all a shoutout on here so here goes:

VENDORS AND TEAM:

Photography at this shoot was done by Husaina Baraya of HBaraya PhotographyHusaina was such a lovely partner to team with and it was a pleasure to work with her. You can soon see her new website at www.hbarayaphotography.com.

The absolutely stunning dresses that the models wore were generously provided by the designer Mishal of Behsah

The beautiful beautiful floral Headpieces, bouquets and centrepieces were done by none other than Bilquees of Zuhoor Designs, and it was stunning. If you have read my blog posts before, you will have noticed that she has done the flowers for majority of the weddings I have covered and that is because she is simply the best out there. None other like her.

Brittany Lynn of Events By B.lynn researched her way into setting the scene for us with the vintage victorian theme. Along with her right hand woman Brenda, they were able to take us back in time. 

Castlefied Designs provided us with two beautiful invitations for the two looks and I loved the colours! Sophie the designer and founder, is amazing at what she does but I really don't need to tell you that, as her work speaks for itself.

Nada of Vanilla Bean Cakery  went way out of her way to design the two beautiful cakes for the shoot and WOW WOW WOW you have to see the beautiful purple cake she created. To say it was stunning would be very much an understatement. I am not just saying this but I truly believe she is one of the most talented cake designers that I have come across in my time as a wedding photographer.

Noura of Nur Artistry did a fabulous job on the Make-Up and we appreciated that she came all the way from Kitchener to be a part of the shoot. I think she did a most lovely job showcasing the two looks.

I can't thank Yasmin Mathurin enough for assisting us with the shoot that day and offering all the advice she had when it comes to film-making, like letting us know where exactly the reflectors should be placed lol. She is a great journalist and film-maker, with a passion that is inspiring. 

Our Models Kate and Lisa were incredibly fabulous! We are grateful for their patience.

Finally I would like to thank Natasha of Natasha Events and Travel for finding some time out of her day to come assist us with the shoot. We truly appreciated it

So... do check out the video above (hit the HD button) and enjoy all the details featured in this shoot. It was a lovely one!
