As promised last post, here is Mide and Saki’s Derby theme. When Mide told me about shooting a black and white derby idea, I was like where around here can we get this done, this aint no countrySo we brainstormed and figured how to make this our own. Saki a wealthy man took Mide for a Kentucky derby date for the last time before they say “i do” – tomorrow that it is. Looking at this pics, I have no doubt that she fell for his charm.
Hotel – Hotel Monaco – Washington DC
Derby Race – Laurel Race Track – I think they gave us a total of 15mins to shoot there – Ouch!
Styling – Nneka
And back to the hotel for some TLC
And we could not end this without saying thank you to Maestro Saki’s jockey who won the race making them some more money
And now the book. As with all my clients, I always want to do something different, so I pitched the idea to Mide and of course gave her the costs to see if she was interested and it was a resounding YES! This is a panoramic book and I love it’s unique look. Just think about your computer keyboard and you can imagine what it looks like, well you don’t have to imagine now, you can see it here. I call this line of books e-books(engagement books) with optional signing pages.
Remember this shot from the post? I love this layout. The space below is for guest to sign. Mide also gave me their monograms to add to the signing areas…so if you’re a guest tomorrow seeing this post, kindly don’t sign over the picturesI know someone would
Some full page design goodness!
The last spread of the book of course and the spreads displayed in this post are just a few of the real thing.
