We did that typical blogger thing of following each other on Twitter and I kinda stalked her blog and her personal style
She is such a vintage dream! And because she was down back in London for a weekend, we hooked up to catch up over coffee but also for me to shoot an outfit for her blog
We met up at Rough Trade East, that delightful record store off of Brick Lane. Had a chat and after seeing her outfit I decided that the store itself would be a perfect setting and vibe for the photo shoot! Who wants pics in front of graffiti when you can tell a story inside Rough Trade?!
I much prefer fashion posts that tell a story. Maybe that is the editorial photographer inside of me coming out. I find them more interesting and dynamic than a simple "outfit in front of a wall" picture
I'd love to give you content like this of myself, but it's hard to take self portraits like the shots I have done for Leigh
These are just some of my favourite pictures in this post also. I took many more!
If you enjoy these images, I am available to hire for images for your own blog. Just drop me an email, a tweet, or a comment, and we can arrange something for sure
What do you think to Leigh's Style? Do you prefer images that tell a story, or focus on the outfit?
