The Little Princess Inspired Ethereal Dream Bridal Styled Shoot

Everyday, in all forms of fashion magazines, we are confronted with editorial spreads.  Typically these spreads serve as a window into the vision &  minds of their creators, showcasing a detailed story that they are tying to tell.  Bridal versions of editorial spreads tend to have a heightened allure to them, playing on our every romantic fantasy & notion we have about weddings.  Allison Kortokrax of Korto Photography utilized that very thing,  inspired by bringing herself back to her time as little girl sitting in her room, dreaming of her wedding day.  Drawing further inspiration from such classic literary works as Through The Looking Glass and The Little Princess, the idea for the shoot was born.  Allison turned to the stunning gowns of Alice Padrul Bridal Couture to dress her creation, while Anjelica Santillan & Jamie Sterle were at the helm styling the bride’s stunning make-up & pin worthy hair.  For those that recall the first movie version of The Little Princess (1939) starring Shirley Temple, you might recall, both due to the styling at the time, as well as the film quality, a certain creamy ethereal dreaminess to the cinematography.  Allison, along with Alice Padrul, Anjelica, & Jamie, were able to likewise bring that creamy ethereal dream state from the film to life.  In the shoot below, you are met with soft, ultra feminine tones that err on the side of vintage inspired, with modern eyes & a soft lip.  The pinned barrel roll hair, which is ultimately sleekly swept into a low back bun, beautifully blends both modern with a throw back feel.  The stunning gowns of French Chantilly lace,  Belgian Bruge cotton lace, & wafts of organza worn in all from capped sleeve, V, to simple spaghetti straps are perfection in their female form hugging ways.  Let this spread take you into the weekend with dreams of being that adult version of the romantic swoon worthy woman, your little girl self dreamed you to be…
