Uniquely Wired M
Uniquely Wired M is an amazing copper jeweler previously based out of Brooklyn, NY. Right before the pandemic she decided to relocate to Las Vegas with her Husband. During the time out there, they became pregnant with twins and wanted to capture a shoot that would focus on their love and her products/persona at the same time. Loving what you do for a living is imperative when including it in your day to day expression. This is exactly what Mshari (the “M” in her company title) does on a regular basis. Joining us on this excursion is the lovely NayMarie of Adorned in Taji, utilizing her work to embellish the images as well.
When arriving for the shoot, Mshari and her husband had a set idea for location in the Caleco Hills. I had never been to this location, so this was going to require on the scene scouting. Mshari knew she would be wearing two distinctly different outfits as well as including one of her creations in one of the shot list sets. The drive to the location was about 20 minutes away and up a large winding hill. When there we were close to a cliff’s edge, where I ran ahead to scout out a secluded area. This particular location was rife with tourists so planning smart was crucial.
After scouting for a short bit of time, I landed upon a rock formation that looked to have formed an archway, hidden just away from the foot traffic. In this archway we captured the first look with a very colorful tone. This area has great lighting due to the present shade. Our second set of shots would be a sepia tone set in the same outfit but in the open area against the backdrop with her prop. The prop was a copper wired cowrie umbrella. Following these shots, we would end with a swap into Black outfits that would present a more luxurious feel. These commercial-style shots focus on embrace. The final product is very satisfying.
