Since I started my blog, I can’t even begin to tell you the amazing people I’ve had the opportunity to meet! From other bloggers, to make up artists, to business owners, to photographers… All these people that have stepped out of their comfort zone to take a risk in pursuing their dreams! Rory, of Rory Coomey Photography is no exception! He has an incredible story and after connecting via Instagram, we decided to join forces and have a fun little photo shoot in our beautiful city, Vancouver.
After meeting up, we jumped right into it! I told him I liked bright, vibrant colours and what better way to showcase that then with a fuchsia dress and a neon green purse! I pretended to walk down the street and look fabulous while he did his thing! I realized almost immediately that he had an amazing eye!
For my second look, we found this incredible floral painted wall and I had the perfect off the shoulder romper to blend in with my surroundings! I usually just shoot with my friends for fun so I felt awkward being directed and posed but when I saw the results, I realized he really knew what he was talking about! Even though I felt awkward, when he showed me the rough shots on the camera screen, I was already so excited! They looked stunning! I’m not a model, but man he could make me look pretty darn good!Â
For our last look, we wanted to wait until the sun was almost set to get that perfect orange dusk glow. I said, should we get in the water and he said yeah let’s do it!Â
As I was standing there he was saying throw your hands up, get on your toes, have fun! I said, I feel stupid… all these people are here along the seawall and they’re staring. He said, they’ll either think you’re a weirdo or they’ll think man, that girl must be someone important! I don’t know about that… but thanks Rory, for making me feel like a rockstar!
