Honesty Hour: My dream is to one day elope and get married on the cliffs in Ireland. I love everything about Ireland: the beautiful greenery, the cloudy weather, the kind people, the gorgeous natural landscapes. No matter where you turn, there's always a stunning view. Another dream of mine is to travel through the U.K. photographing high fashion shoots from city to city. JoPhoto's series is the perfect encapsilation of what I've been daydreaming about for years.
There's no denying that I'm obsessed with this shoot. The movement of the dress is pure otherworldly magic. A pale, neutral color palette for wardrobe is perfect as the greens and blues of the landscape really pop. I'm currently fighting every desire in my body not to impulse buy a flight to Ireland and recreate this whimsical shoot. Enjoy!
From the Photographer | This Ireland bridal shoot will take your breath away! The Cliffs of Moher are one of the most beautiful creations, and the views are absolutely amazing! Standing on the edge of the cliffs with the wind gusting across your body, clouds moving at a brisk pace overhead as the sun peeps in and out, and the water crashing against the rocks made for an epic shoot!The Cliffs of Moher stretch 5 miles along the west coast of Ireland. One of the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland, we visited the day before the shoot to scout a location that was not busy with tourists. We found a small parking area next to a farm that accommodates a few compact European vehicles, so we squeezed our rental car tightly into a spot! Then, we hopped over a gate designated for hikers with a sign that said “Beware of the bull”, and walked along the fence line of the farm to the edge of the cliffs.We teamed up with one of our favorite gown designers, Tatyana Merenyuk for this photo shoot. The blush Penelope gown was amazing on Ciara, a model from Limerick’s The Holman Lee Agency. Hair was by Kristinas Hair Styles and makeup was by Mary Kiely Makeup Artist.
