1. Brooding Romance Antelope Island Utah Wedding

    Not everyone craves a cookie cutter wedding, nor should they.  The stylish fashion forward bride is probably my absolute favorite.  Color, is nothing to her but a vehicle for style.  Black, white, fuchsia, they are all equal, what matters is how evocative one feels over another given its overall design.  For those leaning toward a more moody & mysterious wedding style, something like this Gothic chic Utah wedding hits on all the right levels.  With a hearty focus on wedding fashion, this sophisticated formal exudes atmospheric perfection.  All starting with a black wedding dress from Bling It On Dress Rentals, details like sheer long sleeves accented by hand beaded detailing and a cafe au lait underlay are the touches that elevate & add intrigue.  Dialing up the brooding romance allure, a bridal up-do just the right balance of undone polish, plays a heavy hand into the romance factor.  The rest of this dark & dreamy Utah wedding is the sweeping landscapes that is Antelope Island, captured with beauty by wedding photographer Ashley Smith Photography.  

  2. Artful Fine Art Film Noir Moody Boudoir In Atlanta

    You're not supposed to have favorites.  They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart.  The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it?  When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel.  Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me.  If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth.  There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success.  The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor.  A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout.  Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy.  Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details.  Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...

  3. Exceptionally Gorgeous Moody Australian Elopement

    There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning.  Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see.  Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list.  When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement.  The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool.  I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story.  I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind.  My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light.  My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin.  True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened.  Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...

  4. Dark Romance – A Romantic Woodland Wedding

    For those that are bold enough, adventurous enough, and most certainly open-minded enough, there is a whole other world to be had when it comes to styling your wedding.  Wedding photographers The Byrd Sisters Films teamed up with Alexis Solano Events to create a gorgeously dark and romantic woodland wedding that will leave your head swooning!  Tucked away into the wooded hills of  Malibu Phoenix, like a special little secret, the team of local wedding pros turned an otherwise masculine color palette on its head into a thing of glorious beauty.  While the sweetheart table, covered in mood blooms accented by a regal place setting is certainly repeat worthy, its all about the attention grabbing desserts for me.  Whats a dark romantic woodland wedding without an incredibly pin worthy black wedding cake??  What could one pair with such a beauty, why black 'candied' apples of course!  From the lusciously dark photography to the moody chic styling, I dare you not to covet this dark romance.
