Open Field Bridal Session from Manya Photography

I am not sure how your Wedding Wednesday is looking like today, but I can tell you that you will not want to miss this. I am talking about the prettiest bridal session I have ever seen. I am totally serious. You will want to clear your schedule and set some time aside to see this oh-so-gorgeous bridal session.  This session features a stunning bride in a quaint setting, (a vast and open field), wearing a gorgeous couture gown from Jim Hjelm, paired with a lovely bouquet from Floral Riot.  The talent behind it all? Stylist Hope Stanley together with talented photographer Manya Photography created a most perfect bridal session. Manya Photography was on hand to capture each and every lovely moment of this romantic bridal shoot. Grab your morning coffee, sit back and enjoy the images that will add a bit of loveliness to your day.





















 Our lovely model was Taylor Dukes and our location was the Quail Hill Trailhead in Irvine, California. I wanted to shoot a beautiful bridal gown in a big open field because I pictured this beautiful bridal gown that is soft, romantic, with modern touches in an open field that was opposite of the couture gown. When I saw the gown on Taylor, it reminded me of a ballerina. So I chose the simple hairstyle of a bun with braids with a silver strip of lace added for decoration. The gown has so much texture to it that I didn’t want to take away from it. So the hair, makeup and accessories were kept simple. If you are wondering where the poodle came from, well a women was walking her dog and I thought it would be perfect to photograph with Taylor’s dress. I went ahead and asked the women if I can photograph the dog for the shoot, and she agreed. She was super nice and the poodle was well behaved! All in all, it was a lovely bridal shoot.
