I loved this workshop by Kychelle Photography, hosted by Photo Native. Amber Reverie did such an amazing job with the styling and florals for this beautiful Japanese Inspired Bridal shoot. I am always in awe with everything that Amber does, she is so talented. I am so obsessed with the Magnolia branches! The background and poem were done by the talented Wildfield Paper Co. All of these photos are captured on medium format film and developed and scanned by The Find Lab.
Words from Amber, “There is a serene beauty in meaningful daily rituals. On the morning of her wedding, this lovely bride finds moments of quiet still life in her real life as she pays homage to her Japanese heritage. Surrounded by old world textures of handmade silks and aged pottery, everyday routines like sipping tea, meditation and dressing become significant acts of gentle reflection before a wedding day full of ceremony. Soaking in these moments of simple pleasure, she spends her morning arranging flowers in the subtle art of ikebana, and hand writing vows by a twelfth century Japanese poet. ‘You left impressions unforgettable and when I view our moon your image surfaces and that love seems forever.’ Finally, she dons an antique embroidered kimono and silk gown with handmade jewelry and is ready to wed her love.”
