Day of the Dead Wedding

Day of the Dead Studio Portraits

In honor of my favorite holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) I hosted a workshop with Big Island Photographers Meetup Group at Surf City Images Portrait Studio. Dia De Los Muertos (Day of The Dead) is a traditional Mexican holiday to honor and reunite beloved deceased family and friends. The living creates altars to honor and entice their beloved ones to return for one night. It was believed that on that night the veil between the living and dead is lifted.

Our concept was Day of the Dead wedding. Our lovely bride wore her wedding dress and the handsome groom wore a nice suit with a top hat. We created some interesting lighting with a little backlight, fog machine, and colored gels. Makeup courtesy of Linda Dickenson with Makeup Artistry by Linda
