Celebrating the Sparkle in Your Eye and the Star in the Sky

Holiday Card 2014It’s that time of year again! Time to unveil one of my favorite personal shoots of the year…the annual holiday card photo shoot just for you!

These shoots started a few years back to showcase Nashville’s fine collection of talent with a passion for bridal fashion. From bridal gown designer/boutique to hair and make up stylists to set design to lighting production and everyone in between–the Who’s Who of Nashville’s bridal fashion–our mission is to show that brides access to the high end magazine look for their bridal portraiture right here in Music City.

I believe bridal portraits are the most important portraits of a woman’s lifetime, meant to portray her at a pinnacle of her style and elegance. I also believe that the wedding dress is the most important–and often the most decadent–dress a woman will ever wear.

And making the most important portrait of your life in the most important dress of your life is pretty much what we love most. This is your time to shine!

So here’s to you this holiday season as we celebrate the sparkle in your eye and the star in the sky. Cheers to another stellar year!





P.S. Big thanks to these talented professionals for their marvelous work on this shoot. Make sure they’re a part of your wedding day plans.

It’s Trunk Show Tuesday!
Here’s your round-up of Nashville bridal trunk shows for this coming weekend.

Modern Trousseau

"Tess" from Spring 2015 collection by Modern Trousseau

I’ve been a fan of the Modern Trousseau line since I first walked into the downtown Nashville flagship store in early 2012. One dress in particular stopped me in my tracks and literally took my breath away (read about that dress here), a dress in which I would soon photograph my wife and everbride Meghann a few months later. And I’m thrilled to have photographed seven other gorgeous Modern Trousseau gowns since then.

When I first saw the Spring 2015 collection during New York Bridal Fashion Week’s coverage earlier this year, I knew right away these gowns would properly grace Nashville area brides.

Inspired by glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age, this collection is highlighted by opulent lace and luxurious silk, each gown has the distinct signature of designer Callie Tein. Silhouettes include flowing skirts to fit and flair with strapless, sweetheart, illusion, and deep-V necklines designed to flatter the bride richly.

Descriptives: Sophisticated, Lace, Silk, Customization

Each design evokes classic couture while expressing a vision of modern style and sophistication. The hallmark of Modern Trousseau is customization. And the designs may be modified to suit a bride’s individual style, offering a range of custom selections, including color accents, trimmings, skirt shapes and strap selections, along with the ability to mix and match styles.

And…hooray for “local” of sorts…Modern Trousseau bridal gowns are designed and made right here in the United States.

With nearly a dozen styles in the Spring 2015 collection, selecting just the right dress to suit your style is made easy at these events. Trunk shows offer brides the opportunity to see full collections in one appointment, more than an oftentimes limited selection available at shops on a regular basis.

Contact Ally or Nicole at Modern Trousseau Nashville today to schedule your appointment while openings remain and take advantage of a 10% saving opportunity. Cheers to a great Tuesday!

Modern Trousseau Tennessee's 10% Off December Special

Modern Trousseau Tennessee’s 10% Off December Special

Modern Trousseau celebrates the holidays and the season of giving throughout the month of December. First, the Nashville boutique offers 10% off any bridal gown order placed before December 31st.

Secondly, the couture bridal gown company has generously supported Gabriel Project Mumbai, a Jewish initiative providing hunger relief and literacy for children living in India’s slums in your honor. Visit the project’s website to learn more and make a personal donation.

I’m a big fan of Modern Trousseau’s sophisticated gowns, and I’ve shot several of them (see here). I’m an even bigger fan of the Modern Trousseau team.

I had the pleasure of visiting with designer Callie Tein during a recent visit to Music City, and Ally Lomoscolo will take great care of you during your appointment at the chic downtown boutique.

Be sure you book your appointment before the December craziness kicks in. Tell Ally hello for me when you go. Cheers!
