Behind The Scenes - 2014 Ad Campaign

This past month, I shot my 2014 ad campaign at Pier 59 Studios in New York City. The talented Daniel Jackson, who is most known for his work shooting countless campaigns for the top designers in the business, photographed both the 2014 fall bridal and 2014 spring ready to wear collections.
