Beatrice told Rock n Roll Bride: “Barbie & Ken were married at Faraway Castle, in Plasticity. The bride bought her dress from The Fairy Godmother shop and her shoes from the Cinderella Store. The groom wore a suit from The Prince Charming Emporium. The couple met more than 50 years ago (yes I know they look young). Barbie was tired of waiting so she asked Ken to get married.”
I had found this post a while back and recently someone sent it to me again. A very talented and obviously quirky and creative artist, Beatrice de Guigne, had the honor of shooting Barbie and Ken’s Wedding. Beatrice has her own company and is know as an ‘award winning destination wedding photographer’ (http://beatrice-dg.com/). Her work is exquisite and she really knows what she is doing.
Her work on Barbie’s wedding was nothing short of humorous and entertaining. It also showed some of the really cliche shots that have become a staple in wedding photography: the shoes, the dress and the table settings. She did a great job of lighting each pose and getting things to stay in place, an as most of us girls know, making Barbie stand in her heels on her own is no easy task!
I read on her personal blog page (http://blog.beatrice-dg.com/barbie-ken-lexplication) that it took her three days at two hours a day to shoot the whole ‘ceremony’, and then an additional two hours to edit the photos afterwards. This time doesn’t even begin to count for the months of collecting that she had to do in order to have all the right clothes and props for the shoot. It took time, thought and determination to get what she wanted out of the experience and it gives everyone else something new, different and fun to look at in terms of wedding photography.
