Rebellious Attitude…Artistic State of Mind

Greensboro Wedding Photographer-Pinky La Pain’s Roller Derby Bridal Shoot-Greensboro Coliseum

Pinky’s bridal session took place just a couple of hours before Greensboro Roller Derby’s Wheels of Steel bout on Sept. 23rd.  Since she plays for the Battleground Betties, she wanted her bridal portraits to not only express her love for Roller Derby but to include as many of her team and league mates as possible.  We ended up shooting her portraits just a week prior to her wedding date so we could make sure her vision became a reality. Shooting just before the bout allowed her teammates to be geared up and ready to bout right after the session.

It was an amazing shoot!!  Many of The Battleground Betties and The Mad Dollies suited up early just to be a part of her portraits. Thanks, Pinky for being a risk taker by taking your portraits outside the ordinary, Frayed Edge style!  Your risk, yielded some pretty cool results:

    • This is very dainty, classy and sophisticated, it’s me! She looks beautiful, even with the roller skates and the ring tied to the skates, that’s so cute. I would were this wedding dress, the hairstyle and the accessories. With me being a hairstylist, in the lime light as an author always on the scene to write thr truth, this is me all the way down to the ring. It’s different I’m different. I love roller derby skating, was brought up watching it as a kid. I love to roller skate, I always go to my old skating ring to skate when I go back to California. World On Wheels, oldies but goodies night, Yes!!
