Wedding Morning Boudoir Portraits at Home
She is something to behold
Elegant and bold
She is electricity
Running to my soul
- Vance Joy
Happy Monday! Today we're exploring the beauty of simple, expressive, and emotive at-home imagery. We love the intimacy and minimalism of this concept - cozy and familiar. The photographs by The Happy Bloom tell a story of little moments and subtle movements and the styled elements by Tristan Needham Design are organic and lovely.
From The Happy Bloom: "There is not a time more precious than the early morning moments on a woman’s wedding day. Everything is quiet. Everything is still. Everything is calm. Those moments before the storm, they are everything.
We truly wanted to incorporate European influence into this shoot and we discovered the most romantic way to do this. Traditionally, Dutch grooms knocked on the door of their bride on the morning of their wedding day to present them with their bouquet. And here they would see their bride. Yes, the very beginning of what we now know in the states as a 'first look'."
From Tristan Needham Design: "When Justin came to me about designing and styling a shoot of a bride on the morning of her wedding, I was immediately interested. We wanted to capture it all : morning sunlight, quiet reflective moments, all of the beautiful elements that you dress yourself in before you even slip into your gown. Join us, as we use imagery to tell the story of a bride who decisively chose her palette, flowers, and venue, as a way to highlight her love story."
