I’ve had a lot of ‘photography visions’ lately and am so excited to share with you guys one that has been on my heart for about 4 years! I visited the ‘ruins’ of Knapps Castle for an engagement shoot about 4 years ago and have always wanted to bring a bride up here for a ‘princess’ styled shoot. So with the United conference happening this week in Santa Barbara, I did my best to make it happen! I’m so thankful to Mary Rita of Sew Elegant Bridal Veils and Alterations for loaning me the beautiful veil and tiara from her store along with a vintage wedding skirt that I chose to pair with a flowy white silk shirt from my closet and a custom belt that Mary created! I knew I wanted a soft chiffon feel and loved how the two pieces paired together beautifully!
Thank you to Kristen Booth, a fellow fairy tale wedding photographer for modeling for me and to fellow CA photographer Shannon for being our helper. I’m so grateful also to two amazing friends and fellow wedding photographers Jaime Williams and Elizabeth Langford for assisting me, helping me in any way they could and for being incredible reflector holders/veil tossers! It’s incredible to have such beautiful friends in this industry that encourage and share their knowledge and I’m so thankful to you two ladies for this entire week 😉
SO……enjoy a look at the “princess” inspired bridal castle ruins shoot:
