Recently I had access to a gorgeous gold gown and some bad ass black scale mail, and I was lucky enough to be able to photograph a few different people with it for some really fun fantasy sessions. The first one was at Paradise Springs in Eagle, WI, and that was just with the gold gown. The session I am showing you today took place at Norwegian Hill Farm.
Initially I was going to photograph Jess and her horse Raiden with the gorgeous gold dress, cape, and crown. I was able to get one shot of Jess sans Raiden all dressed up while I was testing my camera settings with the sun low in the sky. After that, we handed Raiden off to Jess to capture pictures of the two of them together.
Well, that didn’t go exactly as planned. The bugs were really bad, and the fly spray we had wasn’t helping much at all. Raiden was not a fan of the bugs and kept moving around. We quickly decided to ditched the cape, because we did not want it to get damaged. The shots we got are still amazing even without the cape.
Black Scale Mail
After the gold dress, Jess changed into the black scale mail armor, and hopped on Raiden for her warrior shots. The gorgeous green fields and setting sun made for some awesome shots in this outfit. Jess even used the plastic spear I transformed for some of the shots. I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. These two seriously rocked their entire session!
I would love to see what kind of outfits you would love to have a fantasy session in! Link them in the comments, and tell me what you love about them and what your fantasy portraits would look like.
