kootenay photographer; shack shoot - makings

Take 1-Creative with ideas multiplying in the hibernating months of snow [precisely 1/2 the year where she resides and approximately 5 months past her liking].   A dormant wedding season.  Add 3-beautifully unique looking locals and a time limit, with 2 being rather nomadic.  Factor in 4-enthusiasts and professionals and professional enthusiasts.  4-vintage dresses. 1-shack, wallpapered in exchange for Greek pizza.  And you have the makings of the FRESH Shack Shoot '11.
My personal projects are growing! See HERE for past personal projects.
We comprised a story-line to keep us on track for the Shack Shoot:  The tattooed and faux-hawked wedding couple has rejected tradition and ran away, happening upon a "cabin in the woods".   There they encounter a feral-looking twosome, sisters, inhabiting the cabin.  One is to assume they, also, do not conform to social norms.  The beautifully wild sisters are happy - despite their inability to smile, given their upbringing -  to serve as wedding attendants. 
- Insert wedding cake and party here! -
[Oh and I also happened upon another chic vintage wedding dress, so we dressed a "bride" out of one of the feral sisters!]
