Bridal musings in the Rose Garden

Last week I had the chance to photograph a bridal editorial set in my new city – Oakland, CA. We went to the Morcom Rose Garden around dusk. Twine & Dandy created a stunning flower crown and bouquet. Juanita from Poetic Beauty did the makeup for Zoe West, the model & ‘Bride’.

I have to say, I’m so inspired and in love with the nature here in California! I’ve always been an outdoors person, but this place, every day when I go for my lunch walk, I’m inspired and energized by the plants, the weather, and the colors around me.

  1. I’ve always wanted to go to California, and these photos just make me want to go even more! This looks like it came out of a dream! Beautiful images.

  2. You’re making me wish we had gone to Oakland when we were in CA last week! I’m a little partial to roses and this is an absolutely beautiful shoot. GORGEOUS work.

  3. These are just STUNNING. I just moved away from California, but I must agree that parts of it are just breathtaking.

  4. There is something to be said regarding the aesthetic of the moment. Artistic Portraiture is not easy, but your effort and attention to detail are apparent and your images sublime. Good work! ?

  5. Beautiful editorial drama. Love the white brows and beautiful florals.

  6. I’ve been to CA but not recently. Clearly I need to go back. I love the perspective and emotion you were able to capture. Simply beautiful. Can’t wait to see more!
