The Moody Romantics is a styled shoot that I had the good fortune to photograph. The concept behind it was dark fairy tales and deep woodsy nature. It was brought together by an extensive list of vendors (see below) who each brought their unique skill set to bring it to life. In it you'll find wardrobe and decor rich in color, like the Pantone color of the year Marsala (2015), and in texture, like lace, fur, quartz, and black diamonds. The botanicals are wild and lush and taxidermy insects drive home the theme. A bride and her two bridesmaid attend a lovely party with a 3 course meal accompanied by cocktails and followed up by a variety of berry pies. But enough from me, please take a look at the photos to see this magical world yourself.
