Modern Twist Styled Shoot
“The inspiration behind this shoot was really a lack of inspiration. As a florist, my inspiration always comes from people, places, feelings. More of a floral experience. I find that so many times, wedding blogs lack proper representation of minorities, and people from all backgrounds. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and wanted to create something for everyone. This project was really born to include friends and family members that can’t find their faces and lifestyles on Pinterest.
We shot at the LA River because it’s so unconventionally pretty. Seeing past the littered spots are beautiful birds, trees and amazing street art. We set the ceremony up against a wall that had graffiti art that been covered dozens of times but was still peeking through. You can cover LA’s street art but the history is still there. We can’t actually ever hide who we truly are.
The girls are in relaxed outfits and tennis shoes because your wedding is of course about feeling your most genuine beautiful self. I chose lush florals because who doesn’t love massive amounts of florals?”
