White Fashion’s Eigirdas Scinskas understands that every bride wants to feel beautiful on her wedding day, so he makes it a personal goal to help each of his lovely ladies feel as fashionable and glamorous as models straight out of Vogue. With charm, an impeccable eye, and assistance from his fiancée Monica (an accomplished make-up artist), each photo is alluring, breathtaking and timeless. It’s my absolute pleasure to share our interview with White Fashion!
Junebug: How does fashion and beauty come into play with your wedding work?
Eigirdas Scinskas, White Fashion Photographer: My first inspiration was most talented fashion photographer Helmut Newton, when I saw his photographs I couldnt take my eyes off of this creation of style and beauty. I have photographed over 300 weddings in the last 10 years, while also working as a fashion photographer. My eye for beauty makes my work original, stylish, and deeply emotional, and my ability to record a wedding day in a beautiful, timeless style while creating stunning, contemporary portraits of loving couples is my major strength. I know how to make people look their best in every situation for me it becomes very natural.
