Photos Taken: March 4, 2017
I remember speaking to one of the NWA fashion week models during an intermission. I told them to please tell Ashley Little I wanted to speak with her, Moments later, I was being introduce to her. I told her how I love her designs and would hope to work with her in the future. Now, lets fast forwarded to December 2, 2018 (a year and 9 months later) I was finally able to work with her. We had our models, Victoria Archer, Nicole Sizemore and Marshall Milligan, and our fabulous makeup artist, Enrique Salamanca. I also invited a good friend of mine, Kai Drachenberg, so that we could have our first big collaboration.
Just a bit of background info about Kai and I’s friendship. Kai and I befriended each other when I worked at Bedford Camera and Video. At that time, I knew Kai as more of a street photographer who had a great eye for capturing everyday things around the community. I was, and still am, a portrait photographer, but I wanted to learn from Kai and for him to learn from me. Without the help from Kai, my photography style would have gone in a totally different direction, but yet it is still in my own direction. I would like to think that I did the same for him. Now, Kai has stepped into the videography realm.
As you can imagine, our collaboration turned out to be great! Check out the behind the scenes highlight reel, shot and directed by Kai.
After seeing that amazing video, I’m sure you’re wondering about my part in all of this. I mean, I am the man behind the bulb. Well, wonder no more. Check out these amazing photos captured by yours truly, Brandon Watts. These are shots of Ashley Little’s custom designed bridal dresses.
