“New Behind-the-Scenes Video Up on Youtube” by Alexandra Gunnoe

I haven’t posted a Behind-the-Scenes video in awhile so I quickly put this one together from our last 30’s Inspired Vintage Picnic Shoot in Bideford Devon. You can read all about it here.

To see other Behind-the-Scenes videos please visit my website http://alexandragunnoe.com. I’ve created a section for my favorite BTS films and plan on adding more over the next couple months. Oh, and please watch in HD!

“50’s Prom Night Gone Wrong” (Behind-the-Scenes) by Alexandra Gunnoe

Our 50’s Inspired Prom shoot on the 5th of April went so well. There wasn’t much stress involved, as we had all worked together before and I had a great feeling about Charli, our latest model.  Again, this shoot took place at Dan Shears’ West of England Transportation Collection in Winkleigh, Devon. The theme of this project was a prom night gone wrong. It centers around a teenage girl who was so excited to go to prom, only to end up in tears and catching the bus home alone.

Despite the crazy wind, we were able to pull off some great images. I’ve included some of my favorites as well as a behind-the-scenes film showing the creative team prepping the model, deciding on the fashion as well as clips from the actual photo shoot.

And if you get a chance, check out “My Bubba & Mi”, who is credited with the soundtrack for the film. Their music is amazing!

A San Francisco Wedding by Alexandra Gunnoe

I recently got back from San Francisco, where I was a bridesmaid in my friend, Sonia’s wedding.  It was a multi-day affair and I had the fortune of photographing the Rehearsal Party and Rehearsal Dinner as well.  The trip was a bit of a whirlwind as there were activities plan almost every day.  As I boarded my flight in London, I was definitely filled with competing emotions. I was extremely excited to travel back to California, where I’ve lived most of my life, and see one of my best friends from UCSB.  We were both on the gymnastics team together there and she my very first college friend.  At the same time I was missing my baby so much that I couldn’t stop staring at another six month old on plane.

Sonia and I had big plans for our portrait shoot, but with her schedule so full we were only able to get a few minutes of alone time.  That’s okay though we were able to get some really stunning images that I really love.  Here is what we came up with…
