Jessica Shae - Elisabeth Carol {vintage}

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

SO many of you have asked about these pictures, I don't blame you! I feel teerrrrible about not having posted them until now. There was this little issue of my editing software holding the pictures hostage and I was so busy editing and blogging all of my other shoots that I just kept letting it slide. But, NO MORE. Elizabeth Carol is a fellow photog in the Dallas area and we met through my blog, believe it or not. She read my blog and commented, and then I went to her blog and commented, and then I realized that she didn't live very far away from me, so of COURSE I suggested coffee. And so began a very happy friendship that is centered mainly around our mutual interest and love for Jesus, coffee, and photography. Three pretty awesome things I must say ;)

This was our first shoot together, and we had so many ideas/props/locations that we literally didn't get through half of them even though we shot for almost 3 hours. We wanted to go for a vintage look in most of these pictures...and I think they turned out pretty well!

In case you hadn't already gathered this, we just took turns taking pictures of each other . . . so all the pictures of me, Elisabeth took, and all the pictures of her I took, (duh) but they are all edited by me :)

I absolutely adored the location we shot at. This long walkway through here was so cool for pictures and the light was awesome!

This was the start of Mollies modeling career, shoot me an email if you want to get in contact with her agent ;)

A month or two before this shoot, I had inherited a couple old cameras from my great grandmother. I was dying to use this camera in particular in a shoot sometime, it's an old polaroid!

Oh you know . . . just chilling, with my bike, some flowers, and my dog. Totally the norm for me ;)

The sun flair we were getting was craaaazzy!

Two of my favorites.
I heart vintage cameras.

Sorry I made y'all wait so long for those...hopefully it was worth it! Elisabeth and I just did another shoot together about two weeks ago that I can't wait to share with you as well. Hopefully it wont take me 2 months to post like this one did ;)

Much Love.

  1. Just for the record... I'm in love with your post-processing. Next time we FINALLY get to hang out, I might just have you do some pictures of me. Because I love your style.

  2. Cute cute cute! I love that Polariod...If you find that it is missing you'll know why ;)

  3. Wow, Jessica, those are AWESOME! I think I've commented here before, but I can't quite remember. Just wanted to let you know, you are such an amazing photographer, and I love reading your blog posts! You always provide such inspiration. Thank you so, SO much! I'm 15 and got the Rebel Xsi with 50mm 1.8 lens in October. This is a link to some of my photos although many were taken with my point and shoot:

    Again, thank you SO much, and I can't wait for your next post! And sorry this comment was so long. :-/

  4. These are all perfect! Love love love them!

  5. Goodness does anybody ever tell you how awesome your hair is?? Coz it IS! I love it! How on earth did you do it?

    I am in love with photography, and I adore vintage, so this post was like eye candy for me. Thanks so much, and keep up the good work!

  6. Gorgeous, gorgeous work. We're all fortunate that you're both so talented behind the camera, and so gosh darn good lookin' in front of it! :)

    That's awesome that you met through your blog - I'll have to check hers out too. (and I'd ask to tag along for coffee one day, but Dallas is a little far from Toronto!)

    My favourite things from this shoot are, in no particular order, your bike, the sun flare, Elisabeth's heels, and all the beautiful, soft colours. You really achieved that antique-y look you were going for, with a nice modern flare.



Oh hey!
Thanks for taking the time to say hello, it makes my day everytime! :)
