This was a really fun collaboration with Tatiana Ashakova, who is a super creative and talented hair and makeup stylist. She also designs really beautiful hair accessories that our model wore in the shoot as well. Tatiana sourced a beautiful couture dress from Joyce Young and delicate gowns from Shell Belle Couture. Botanic Art made us a beautiful bouquet and garland which I wrapped around our gorgeous model, Julia. I love the idea of a bride setting aside a bit of time on the morning of the wedding for a short boudoir session and bridal portraits. I always spend a few minutes photographing my brides right before we head off to the ceremony, but scheduling more time for bridal portraits would be amazing!
