Today I am delighted to share Industrial Romance, a beautiful Same Sex Styled Shoot shot in Columbus, Ohio.
The setting was High Line Car House, originally built in 1873 as part of the Columbus Streetcar system, it is now a premier venue in the Brewery District of Downtown Columbus.
The historic brick walls, high ceilings, industrial beams and windows are an amazing setting for a celebration and were perfect for this shoot.
Images were captured by Steph Parker with the collaboration of an incredible collaborative team.
Steph says of the shoot…
The biggest inspiration behind Industrial Romance is my love of natural light and contrast.
In my work, I ensure that colours are always bright and bold. And I always ensure that shadows are represented as they should be.
The colour black is a natural part of life and should always be represented in artistic work.
My work is influenced and inspired by LIFE and in life there is always darkness and black but also brightness and light.
It was this concept that led to me to shoot this styled shoot with 100% natural light.
I am so grateful for the amazing friends and vendors that understood my vision for this shoot and helped make it amazingly successful. It’s moody. It’s romantic. It’s bold. It’s feminine. It’s accepting. It’s everything.
My favourite part about this shoot?
The faces behind the success of this shoot – all women.
The models behind the shoot, Claire & Kristin are a real life engaged couple.
It’s incredible too that some of the BEST of weddings in Columbus are women-owned companies and I couldn’t be more proud to plan a shoot that represents that.
