Nestled in the lush, wooded eucalyptus trees atop the plunging seaside cliffs of Palos Verdes, CA sits the San Francis Chapel and it was hard to imagine a more inspiring location for this Alice Adventures in Wonderland inspired photo shoot. Throughout my photography and artistic career I created a few series inspired by the famous Lewis Carol’s novel but this very specific one was a true labor of love and I had the most incredible time dreaming and planning. I drew my inspiration from the artistic movements in Europe during the medieval and renaissance time periods and incorporated couture gowns from Claire Pettibone and Hayley Paige as well as a gorgeous crown still from Claire Pettibone and designer shoes from Bella Belle and Something Bleu. I wanted to show the modern bride how she can incorporate the beauty of the old world and the magic of a fairy tale with the modern couture. It wouldn’t be a Wonderland inspired photo shoot without a bunny rabbit, so little Bowie guest starred and played along with our gorgeous model.
