A few months ago I came across a fun portrait idea and put the word out that I was looking to photograph a woman in her mother’s wedding gown. Honestly, how fun is that? You get to honor your mom by wearing her gown for some portraits and still wear your own for your wedding — its the best of both worlds and its neat to see similarities between mother and daughter.
This is Katie. She likes the idea as much as I do.
Katie is wearing her mother’s wedding dress from the 1970s. Her mom sewed this dress herself, so its a total one of a kind, I love that! I also love that Katie wore this vintage inspired headpiece and silver ballet flats. It updates the look without taking away from the dress.
It was so hard for me to change this next one into black and white, but I just adore all the textures from this building and the ivy and I feel the black and white really brings that out.
This one just may be my favorite!
The only thing different I’d like to do next time is take inspiration from a portrait of the bride’s mother from her wedding and try to recreate that portrait for a fun side by side comparison of mother and daughter!
