Gina came to me wanting to do create a styled bridal shoot, and I pitched the idea of something architectural and modern. She loved it, and the project was born!
We had sooooo many talented people collaborating with us, and we couldn't have done it with out them!

In the meantime, I'll give you the details on the FASHION!
The love story is between an architect (groom) and an interior designer (bride). So, everything was kept VERY clean and minimalistic. Jason Jarvis had an amazing black suit and an enormous tie collection to pull from. He also had this CRAZY AMAZING tweed Dior jacket that I HAD to use because it's that awesome. The rest is history - we kept him timeless, chic and monochromatic.
Miss Gwen is a talented model from Agency Arizona, and of course, she looked amazing in everything. So, for her first look I wanted something very simple and pretty, so I selected a Claire Pettibone gown from Mariee Gallery. For her second look, we wanted something more architectural and structured. Ian Stuart was the perfect gown designer for the job, and Mariee Gallery is the only bridal salon in Arizona that carries his work.
I hope you LOVE LOVE LOVE the project!
