Katya - Royal Russian


Ekaterina Pinkowski is one of our models on the roster of our sister company – Storyboard Model Management.

This past weekend the blooms and blossoms in Summerland were illuminating the landscape to create the most perfect backdrops for photography. I wanted to photograph Katya in a number of different settings - to illustrate the approach Storyboard might take when looking to present an individual in a most stunning light. This is also what we do when photographing weddings - look for the location that best suits the couple getting married.


Journalistic and fashion-based wedding photography

Fashion-based wedding photography - At Storyboard Weddings our approach is a fashion-based style of wedding photography, where photographer Stephanie Seaton combines images from the wedding day with more posed images inspired by an editorial style of fashion photography. Having a passion for post-processing of images and subtle dramatic effects, this style can be evocative and is one of the best modes for capturing the love between two people.

Journalistic style wedding photography - Photojournalism as a style for wedding photography has been around since the late 1980's. At Storyboard Productions we love this style for its' edginess - it is raw and has a film quality that can be dramatic and works as a complementary secondary style to our dreamy and moody main style of fashion-based wedding photography.

The two photos above were shot just before an Evolve Cellars wedding by our talented second shooter, Alexander del Hierro, last summer.
