A styled shoot combines classic greek motifs with a sleek industrial setting for an artistic ambiance. Inspired by timeless East Coast weddings, photographer Paige McKenzi chose Studio Elevn as their venue. “We wanted something artistic, but still lasting through trends that come and go.” McKenzi adorned the contemporary setting with flickering candles and striking Greek statue planters for an added layer of romance.
“We were going for a classic, artistic aesthetic,” says Mckenzi. Focused colors of white, blacks and greens were used to channel a timeless feel.
Over 50 white candles added an air of charm to the sleek shoot, although they also presented a unique challenge to both models and the photographer. “We were a bit worried about the candles. Would it be too hot for the couple to be by? Would they stay lit with the constant AC blowing on them?” Mckenzie says. Luckily, the flickering lights cooperated throughout and delivered the perfect amount of classic charm to the shoot.
“My favorite aspect of this setting was the industrial yet classic vibe,” says McKenzie. “The candles and Greek heads were so classical and clean, yet the venue itself was industrial with polished concrete floors and exposed interiors.” Combining elements of the past with a present-day creates a unique contrast that will never go out of style.
