Bridal Look: Modern Romance
This is Abby, and she is beautiful inside and out. It was such a pleasure taking her picture for this mock-bridal session in collaboration with Downtown Beauty Lounge in Jonesborough, Tennessee. I styled her in two wedding dress sets and fresh flowers and ferns in her hair. And if you keep up with my blog, you know how much I love to DIY props for shoots; totally did that with the bouquet below and want to do that for a living now (JK I have too many jobs already).
Sometimes, I'll do makeup for folks when I take their photos, and both of Abby's outfits feature a natural bridal makeup look; one neutral, one dramatic. Most brides want to look like themselves on their wedding day, so that's always my goal when styling their makeup or overall look. And I'm really loving minimalist jewelry with bridal dresses right now, and here, I used a simple gold choker and vintage bangle to balance out and modernize both looks.
I know I say this often, but I have to reiterate just how much I love taking photos. I over-prepare (by making props and such haha), stress out and triple-check all of my equipment in the days before a session, and question whether or not I'm actually good at what I went to school for, but when the shoot is over, I'm always so happy, so content; especially when I work with people who seem to genuinely enjoy working with me. This shoot was one of those magical ones where everything came together so perfectly and the team meshed so well. Cannot wait to work with Abby and Katie again!
