Extreme Photo Art! A portrait gone wild

If you're a regular reader of the blog... you've heard the name Sugar Taylor before. She's the mastermind and creative force behind DIYva Designs. If you don't know about them yet (have you been hiding in a cave?!?!) they're at the very top of DC's most creative event planning companies. If you're an off beat bride- looking for some fresh ideas and not another snooze-worthy wedding.. DIYva Designs is your go-to. Trust me. Anytime I get an email from a client of theirs they get top priority booking because I know I'm in for an artistic treat.

Okay enough... now for pics... sit down before scrolling... you may become disoriented!

Okay, that's intense! We'll have to work our way up to this. Let's start with something more chill. Sugar has had some beautiful portraits taken, but this time wanted something really artistic, so she decided to come to me.  We had a initial attraction towards doing a Twiggy shoot, and started with some of those images.This is Twiggy if you're not familiar.

Did I nail it? And Sugar of course never disappoints with the posing! Sugar also said she would love some in a kind of 70's editing. So here's some of that fun-ness!

P.S. Are you loving these awesome 70's clothes and neat jewelry. The clothes and jewelry (not the black and white stuff though) were styled by

Love the 70's look but also loved some of these in color... what do you like best? (Leave a comment below)

Now... for the CRAAAZINESSS!!!! I'll break you in slowly then bring on the full fledged insanity. We started with the Twiggy 70's look but Sugar also told me that I could bring ANY idea that I wanted, knowing it would be off the wall. I spent a long time thinking about it and taking Sugar's loud, fun, and wild personality I decided to try to tip my hat off to the Pop Art movement. Very bold, very graphic, extremely crazy. I think Sugar and Andy Warhol would have made good friends!

 Okay... I feel I've broken you in softly. Now for when I blared crazy music and unleashed the full unbridled artisness!! Make sure you're sitting down.

 Okay, I've gotta say this one below if one of my favs... have I completely gone off the deep end??!

Sugar... we're excited to know, which shot is your fav... and everyone one else, did you like best the 70's ones, the b&w twiggy's or the crazy pattern overload? Leave a note! (will be approved before posting)
