Evey is such a talented designer and fashionista. Her work is vibrant and eclectic and Evey creates true “wearable art”. She is known for her light up, electrical and fiber optic gowns, as well as her vibrantly colored and ombre wedding dresses, making the average model stand out among the rest. Her taste (pun intended) is unique and ever so creative, combining food, colors, and lights in never before seen styles. To top it off, her designs come with a great attitude and incredible energy on set. Evey is a pleasure to work with and I love being able to document her innovative ideas!
As a destination wedding, adventure photographer I am always looking to push the envelope with my photographs and I am always trying to do styled shoots that have a theme behind them. I am always seeking out inspiration for my photography outside of the wedding industry in not only fashion, but tech news, science and through my travels. I recently went to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada and I was in LOVE with the way the desert took on another form and the “energy” shifted once the sun set and the LED lights and costumes came to life. There, everyone is told to bring tons of LED lights to pin to your clothing, mainly to save you from getting run down in the dark by a giant mutant art car in the pitch blackness of the desert at night.
As a Burning Man virgin and not knowing where to begin procuring glow in the dark clothing, I called upon Evey Rosenbloom (www.eveyclothing.com), an amazing wedding dress designer that creates true “wearable art”. She is known for her light up, electrical, LED and fiber optic gowns and she also has made dresses out of pages of books, toys, and even perishable materials such as flowers or cupcakes! She quickly made three wedding dresses for me to wear at Burning Man and it sparked a whole epiphany for me as a photographer.
When I shoot a wedding the look and feel of my images and how I light them changes drastically from day time to nighttime, just like the crowd’s mood at Burning Man or even a wedding. Something shifts in all of us as human beings when day turns to night and it was amazing how the costumes during the day, morphed into a carnival of light at night. Evey loved this idea as well and designed dresses that looked amazing for a day time wedding, (one of her designs took her 3 weeks to make and was made from crushed crystals and mirrors with a chest plate made from a mold) and then at night lights up from within and had an LED petticoat. The attention these dresses got drew crowds literally like moths to a flame and created a beautiful glow of light, ethereal for any photographer to capture. What a unique and perfect way for a bride to kick her reception up a notch, by turning on her LED Wedding dress to signal the start of the festivities.
