Ayres Photography - Agree, Joe! You can never have too much “crazy eyes.” ;)

Joe Lavigne - Man, that day was super fun. I just think we could have used more Crazy Eyes.

made by anatomy

About a year ago, talented Buffalo designer, Ali Eagen of Made by Anatomy, asked us to photograph her new line of modern wedding dresses.  I’ve been a fan of Ali’s work for quite some time, so getting to collaborate with her on this project was a huge honor. She wanted the images to have a fresh, clean, semi-industrial look, and an editorial feel.  I think we really nailed it!  She uses these images on her website and in her printed advertisements, and it makes me smile every time I see them.  :)

We recommend Made by Anatomy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a unique, modern wedding dress.  Ali has some serious talent!  I’m obsessed with all of these dresses.

Although it’s been a while since this shoot took place, I still wanted to share a few of my favorites from the day, so here they are!

*More details about the shoot can be found at the end of the post.

And, a couple behind-the-scenes captures of Ali and Lizzy prepping for the shoot!  :)
