This Zombie Wedding Photo Shoot Looks Like a Bloody Good Time

By Hanssie on November 28th 2015

zombie_wedding_17The last few years we have seen a rising trend in the popularity of zombies. We left behind (thankfully) the teen vampire trend and have embraced the ghoulish, groany, raspy, stiff-legged undead. Thanks to shows like the Walking Dead, I even have an appI use while running that simulates Zombies chasing after you as motivation to run faster (it works). In Vegas, this past Halloween, not only were my group of friends all in zombie-esque bridal party get-ups (we were the ‘Zombaes’), but so were many patrons on the Strip and in the clubs (in various states of undress, but who’s judging). In honor of Halloween this year, Ukrainian photographer Irina Skripnik gathered her favorite zombie friends for a zombie-themed wedding photo shoot. Irina wanted to do something completely creative that is not the typical “standard” in the Ukraine.

A project like this always takes a team to pull together successfully. Beyond just the models, you need to a complete styling team (at least I do). Pulling together the talents of so many to collaborate is always a fun endeavor. Irina and a team of models, makeup artists, hair stylists, DJ’s and musicians set up a crazy, scary shoot. You can see all the behind the scenes happenings from the shoot in the video below.
