Kristen Kilpatrick + PV Takeover + Day 1

PhotoVision Team

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: I truly believe that for any artist there is always one project that scares you half to death. The reasons for fear can often times look different, but ultimately derive from the fear of failing. For me, this shoot was something I mentally prepped for since the moment we put it on the schedule. PhotoVision was my biggest cheerleader. I'll never forget talking on the phone to @brian.wood for 45 minutes about the process of shooting film, lighting and tips he so kindly shared with me. It was during this shoot that I realized PV is much more than a film lab. They are not only your family within the industry, but more importantly, at the end of the day, your sideline cheerleaders. They want each shoot to turn out as successful as you do, and simply knowing that gives you so much peace.

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: Details! I love details! There is so much creative freedom within these shots. And can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that details (sans wind) don't move?! I love to take my time with the major details from a wedding day, pulling subject matter from the day (like flowers and colors) to make one thematic composition. Details have so much power to tell a beautiful story.

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: Much of my inspiration comes from art, fashion and films. Wes Anderson’s films have always struck an inner cord. I love his use of color and unfailing use of symmetry.

@kilpat Takeover Day 1: Aside from the arts, another major inspiration to my work is light play and the environment. I love the fusion of these two natural elements. There is no bigger or better tool than light! I was born with a passion for all things equine, so I'm instantly drawn to any composition involving them! This picture was taken about 30 minutes before sunset. The light was soft and the evening was perfectly still.

Taylor Lord + PV Takeover + Day 2

Stephen Wood

@taylorlord Takeover Day 2: I chose this photo for one specific reason—okay, maybe two. First of all, I absolutely loved this bride, for the love between her and her groom, and for her DRESS! This was before the long-sleeved dress was becoming a trend, and it was SO innovative! Secondly, this wedding has always been a reminder to me that being generous pays you back tenfold, every time. This bride had just fired her previous wedding photographer and had contacted me, but she had lost her deposit and had only half her original budget. I was uncertain whether it was going to work out, but after talking with her, I just had a feeling we would be a good fit and I decided to help. I’m SO thankful that I did. Not only was I able to capture some amazing images for her (and my portfolio!), but one of her photos was selected as the cover for @bridesofnorthtx, a local magazine here in Dallas! Remember—a little generosity can go a long way.

@taylorlord Takeover Day 2: SYMMETRY is my JAM. Like, down to the quarter inch, you guys. I love symmetry. (Or asymmetry, if that’s your intention!) Nothing makes me love a composition more than when it’s symmetrical! It’s like a nice little break for your eyes!

@taylorlord Takeover Day 2: As much as I love the seriousness of the fine art style, I equally love capturing the emotional happiness and love between two people who are getting married soon. I love to get up in people’s personal space while shooting! It creates a different level of intimacy between the viewer and the subject, making the viewer feel as though they’re right there with them, experiencing that same happiness and love!
