Every great photograph must be first visualized and strategized and then brought to life. I had the privilege to work with GQ & Glamour Magazine on October 4th at the King of Prussia, Simon Mall in PA. The GQ & Glamour stylists came to my store, Thomas Pink (A luxury British clothing line from Jergym Street, London) at least five times to get the right looks for the runway. Why? Because the stylists already visualized what the picture on the runway should be. Therefore, the photograph had already been captured way before the models walked down the catwalk. There was one element left and that was for the photographer(s) to snap the pictures. It was no longer an idea, but now it is complete. This is what Toussaint Photography is bringing to the table in the wedding industry. This is not a new trend at all, but how it has been done needs a makeover. We create the perfect picture for the bride and groom by selecting the right style. I have photographed enough fashion faux pas. As a model, stylist, and a photographer, I believe I am blessed and fortunate enough to remove this burden from a couple on their very special day. Every bride has their own Glamour side; every groom has their own GQ side. The question is, who will bring it out of them? Who will dare to capture it? Ulysse Toussaint is here to put this worry to rest once and for all.
Toussaint's great fashion accomplishment thus far is dressing Vice-President Joe Biden for inauguration night in 2008, working with GQ and Glamour Magazines in creating a fashion show.
