Bridal Market Week 2014: Sneak Peek

IMG_6217
Backstage at Oscar de la Renta Bridal

Over the last 4 days, I’ve shot about 5 shows during NYC’s 2014 Bridal Market Week. I’m excited to share that I’ve been covering backstage beauty for BRIDES Magazine and The Daily. I’ll post more details once the online coverage, and the issue of BRIDES comes out. But needless to say, it’s been an exciting week! Looking forward to sharing what I consider some of the most beautiful backstage photos I’ve ever shot.

Adventures In DIY Studio Photography

Yea… so I’ve been MIA for a ridiculously long time. As usual, the universe has conspired to make my busiest periods, work wise, coincide with the craziest times in my life. I always take a bit of time off after Fashion Week. This season was no different– I spent two weeks in my hometown. As soon as I got back to NYC, I (this is embarrassing to even admit) damaged by nearly brand new macbook pro, rendering it nearly useless, and putting me out of commission for quite a long time. I’ve managed to get my old black macbook up and running again, so expect the last half of my NYFW posts, and some event coverage soon. And once it’s set up, a how-to post on building your own DIY at-home photo studio.

Until then, here is a teaser from my very first home studio shoot, which took place this past weekend. My friend, and long-time collaborator Casey Kettleson is working on a fun new personal project– more on that soon– and needed a photographer. Which ended up being the perfect occasion to test out my new lighting equipment. She rented a backdrop kit, and I trekked uptown to her apartment, for two days of fashion photography, and fun. While we were working on her project, we managed to get some fun new head shots to be used as promotional photos. Below, one of my favorites.

Happy 2012!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and is enjoying 2012 so far! As part of a few changes I’m going to be making, I redesigned my entire photo website. No more clunky thumbnails! I’m so happy with it, and think it presents my work in a much more beautiful setting.

New Website: www.RachelScroggins.net
See it at www.rachelscroggins.net

I’ll be posting a lot more in the coming weeks (hello, New Year’s resolution!), so expect some fun new photos, and some NYFW catchup posts that got lost somewhere in my absolutely crazy 2011.

California Dreaming

The Painted Ladies

Earlier this month, I took advantage of some free air miles I’d earned since moving to NYC, and flew out to San Francisco, to visit some friends and do some sightseeing.

California 18

I loved all of the amazing architecture around the city, especially all of the old Victorian houses, and the Painted Ladies around Alamo Square Park.

Aleister Crowley’s old house. Creepy!

I was lucky enough to catch the Alameda Point Antiques Fair that weekend, where I picked up some amazing vintage pieces, like an old kimono, a sari, and some Japanese paper art prints.

There was plenty of cool old “junk” for sale.

I met up with Julio (who I’ve known since 2005, via my first blog, but had never met in person!) for some insanely cheap vintage shopping:
California 68
Sadly, he did not buy this jacket.

I took home 2 old lacy lingerie inspired tops and a dress –all for TEN DOLLARS– via a vintage by the pound store.

On our way home, we stopped by Clarion Alley to photograph the beautiful street art that lines the entire alley:

We saw quite a few artists in action:

While it’s safe to say things like thrift shopping and even street art are better on the west coast, by the end of the week, I couldn’t be happier to be a New Yorker, and be heading home. I missed the big city, the ease of (nearly) all-encompassing public transportation, and the hustle and bustle of New York life.
California was fun, but the trip really affirmed by choice to move to the East Coast over 5 years ago, instead of heading out west.

* I also shot some street style while I was on vacation, which will hopefully be up on StyledOn in the near future.
