This image is the 1st in a series of 3….. My inspiration behind this are all the lovely wedding images that I see; full of hope, happiness and love, but as we all know the divorce rate is very high and unfortunately many of the beautiful and happy couples divorce… It makes me wonder how would these couples feel if they knew that a few years down the road and a couple of children later, their union would end in divorce. These are the emotions I have tried to capture and portray in my series. And I would like to add a huge thank you to my model and best friend who was also my inspiration as she too recently divorced but was still brave enough to get back into her beautiful wedding dress for this shoot.

    Thank you StacyLee & Midzing. I was actually suprised she agreed! It’s still very fresh and the emotions are very raw but I’m so glad she did agree, it was quite therapeutic.

    Basia you are getting more and more impressive( you started out impressive though). Love the texture on this piece,it almost has a feeling of a painting… great tones.. I like the darker color. Really a well done piece.
