Whimsical and Rustic Alternative Bridal

August 19, 2015

One of our favorite things about bridal sessions is when brides incorporate heritage into their session. This beautiful (and totally rad alternative!) bride, Shea, unfortunately lost her mother a few years ago, so she decided to honor her memory by holding her Mom's own bridal portrait which you'll see below. Nothing tugs the heart strings more!

In a classic mermaid style wedding gown juxtaposed with her colorful tattoos and bridal dreadlocks, Shea is a gorgeous paragon of a modern day bride spinning tradition into her own unique style... which as a professional hair stylist by day comes naturally to her!

Since she and her fiancé, Allen, will be having a rustic-inspired wedding at her future in-laws' family farm, it was only perfect to have her bridal session with Angel Eyes Photography there, too!
