Styled: Ethereal Fairytale Bridal Shoot

Hi all!

So if you’ve been to my new portfolio page, you will definitely recognize these photos, and frankly, this post is WAYYYY overdue.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kristen Booth and Celeste Bernabe for this gorgeous ethereal themed bridal shoot.

This was the first in a series of themed bridal sessions we’re going to do over the next year and a half… Yes, we are CRAZY, BUT, we absolutely love it πŸ˜‰

The main inspiration for this session was simply the word, “ethereal”. Our entire shoot was designed and focused around that one word. In the end, our goal was to make the gorgeous Gabi look like a little forest nymph who was born and raised in the woods. Hopefully, we succeeded. Another important part of the idea behind this shoot is also the theme of fairytale. This is really the underlying theme of our whole series, but, I’ll get to that later one. For now, let’s just see those images!

Since my handiwork is in the details, I’ll start this baby off with the main detail shots. I am SO SO pleased with the way they turned out, both Kristen and Celeste brought their A-games as usual. No matter what I make or pull together, if the photography and hair and makeup styling don’t work, then really, nothing else works. These two are a pleasure to work with, and I hope the images are as pleasing to you all as they are to us.


This amazing box and the next couple of items actually belonged to Kristen, and partially helped inspire this shoot. They fit SO well with our theme that we HAD to include them!

This is the first of the two headpieces i made for the shoot. I love the lacquered look the leaves have to them!

For the second half of the shoot, I made a flower crown for Gabi. To make it a little more natural and, of course, ethereal, I wanted to mostly use wildflowers from our location. They were gorgeous and it was so fun to make.

This last shot is my absolute favorite! She looks just like a nymph surrounded by fireflies. Love love love!

I hope everyone loves this as much as we do! We had so much fun doing it, and everything came together so amazingly.
