The thing about seasons are they sort of represent different personalities and characters. Like I could imagine four different people with varying outlooks in life representing the four times of the year. For example, “summer” would be the cheerful and energetic one in the group then “winter” would be more reserved and contemplative. And this is what this winter bridal shoot speaks to me. The beautiful bride is wearing a criss-cross neckline dress which reminds me of Greek goddesses. Then she’s wearing this solemn look on her face as coldness continues to pour down outside. Then we had a little deviation with the cake which was inspired by the previous holiday season. Overall, it was a nicely done winter bridal shoot.
Our winter bridal session was taken in an indoor building in downtown Saint Louis: Paul Brown Lofts. The feature of this building is its aesthetics. We used the modern area of the building and with a minimal style we have interpreted the idea of a modern, dreamer bride.
A small Christmas tree composed of artificial cranberries and leaves created a contemporary look. The German Spice Cookies “Pfeffernüsse” translated “paper nuts” are popular as a December holiday cookies. A White Reindeer inspired the image of Christmas.
Most important the morning light coming from the large windows gave a touch of magic.
We hope our ideas will inspire brides to be.
