Bridal Portraits

Modern Vintage Bridal Session At The Caldwell Zoo With Romantic Safari Influences

Vintage glam at the zoo, YES!  What could possible be more romantic then softly tumbling locks, full frilly vintage wedding dresses from the 1950’s & 1960’s and a safari like setting?!  Gema of Photography by Gema put together this wonderful little styled bridal portrait session showing how easily one can make something vintage, fresh & modern.  While most brides gravitate toward brand new wedding dresses, there is something extra special about snagging a gown out of a vintage collection and putting your spin on it, whether its proper ivory or a dress with a subtle pink hue!  Mixing in bold oranges with touches of red & brown round out this wonderfully exotic feel, also giving us a peek at a lovely winter/fall inspired palette.  Winter colors often get written off as having a harsher edge to them, Gema’s session proves that there is a dreamy gentle & romantic side as well, plus it also doesnt hurt to have snuggling giraffes in the background either!
