From the photographer: This shoot was put together for a new cake company to feature in a Bridal show. It ended up being a fantastic experience. We used two models who are sisters and have been married for 6 years. Both of the girls got to put their own wedding dresses back on and feel like princesses for the day. Afterwards they told us ‘it was the most fun they had had in a long time.’  They were able to relive their wedding day all over again, only this time without the stress.They also loved how they got to enjoy the experience together. Because of this shoot, we have decided to start offering “group” Bridal sessions, not only for newlyweds, but also for those who have been married for quite some time.

Marie Antoinette Inspired Photoshoot by Christina Gressianu

Decadence and opulence are words which immediately come to mind when I think of Marie Antoinette. This teenage French Queen – famous for her beauty and expensive lifestyle – has today become a symbol of wanton extravagance inspiring artists from all over the world. Just like this fabulous team headed up by creative photographer Christina Gressianu. Filled to the brim with gold embellishments, Victorian styling and a gorgeous array of cakes, this Marie Antoinette photoshoot is the epitome of over-the-top beauty and definitely fit for a princess!

From Christina: Living in Colorado from New York City, I occasionally crave the opulence I frequently brushed up against there. While the nature here is magnificent, early this year I began having ideas about a girl surrounded by wealth, gold and frills. A girl who was completely unimpressed with the grandeur around her. And so I thought of Marie Antoinette. In the height of Versailles’ wealth, she preferred to play in the grass with her dogs. This series of photographs came from that vision in my mind, and from a desire to make the pictures I saw in my head real in the world. I feel deep gratitude for the amazing team who worked with me to bring the Marie in my mind out to Fort Collins! I am so fortunate these talented people were inspired by my ideas. They went above and beyond anything I could have expected. Thank you.
