Infused Studios :: Top 10 ‘Uh Ohs’ from 2010

Words by Maureen Young

2010 has come and gone in a flash. We are delighted to have shared so many wonderful memories with our bride and grooms……but the ones that really stuck out are the unscripted moments and the embarrassing bloopers behind the shots. When we look back at these images, we can’t help but laugh at some of our misadventures behind creating the imagery for our couples.

10 :: While shooting at the Muttart, we asked Helena to spin while holding onto her wedding dress. She spun so fast that the wind caught, and her dress flipped up like an umbrella… fortunately no passer-bys witnessed the moment! (Helena + Yun’s Wedding)

 

9 :: During the shot on top of the Seattle Art Museum monument, bystanders thought Sam was going to throw Karen off the building during our signature “Infused” lift pose.
(Karen + Sam’s E-session)

8 :: Sam’s groomsman walked into the Burburry store and asked to borrow one of their handbags for a photoshoot. He was going to pay half of the price as a deposit and return it after the shoot, but the manager declined. We just wanted the Burberry shopping bag! (Karen + Sam’s Wedding )

7 :: Anthony watched from the stage while Rina was caught up in the excitement on the dance floor. It was like watching a human pinball machine. She came home with mysterious bruises, on the face, body and legs from the cameras banging up against her. (Meezy + Sam’s Reception)

6 :: After being announced Husband + Wife at the altar, Ryan frolicked down the stairs in cheers and excitement… he was unaware that he almost made Steph trip on her own dress while he was high five-ing the crowd like a rockstar. (Steph + Ryan’s Wedding)

5 :: For the roof top sequence, we made Ken smoke at least a dozen cigarettes to get the right puff of smoke for the shot. Ken is a non-smoker. He also posed as an urban sniper that night with a huge rifle, while we were on constant lookout for law enforcement. (Lisa + Ken, E-Session :: The Pursuit)

4 :: While shooting on top of the state park, more than a dozen men in soiled jumpsuits showed up in an armored truck and surrounded us while they maintained the lawn. Gary told us afterward that they were indeed cons, doing their community service. (Philana + Gary, Trash the Dress)

3 :: Len tells us during their Trash the Dress session that he doesn’t know how to swim. Luckily Cancun has a WalMart and we had already bought flutter-boards before hand.
(Rachelle + Len, Trash the Dress)

2 :: Irene gets a nice surprise when a baby goat jumps on her wedding dress. (Irene + Peter’s Wedding)

1 :: Rina getting taken out by a wave and losing her swimming trunks while trying to save her flash from going under. No worries, nothing revealed as she quickly sank back into the water to pull them back up after the shot was done. (Lan + Troy, Trash the Dress)

What are your top Infused Studios memories of 2010? Love. You. Always.
