Ethereal Vintage Bridal Portraits in Elegant Neutrals

Rachel Solomon Photography

I have such a truly beautiful bridal inspiration shoot to share with your today. Taken at the Kurt Boomer Workshop at Sunstone Winery, with the most exquisite vintage gown from Gossamer, it was captured on film by the discerning eye of Rachel Solomon. Full of soft light and elegant neutrals it positively brims with romance….. I just know you are going to love it!

Ethereal Vintage Bridal Shoot in Elegant Neutrals

Before we get lost in all of the loveliness, a few words from photographer Rachel Solomon “This shoot was inspired by the vintage elements of the Gossamer gown and the elegant simplicity of the Sunstone Villa.  A study on a musician at her practice, it gives the viewer a feeling of intimate emotion and beauty. Deeper hues of red and plum compliment the lighter blues and pinks, while soft window light captured on film creates a look full of depth and dimension.”
