Snow White. A Bridal Session.

Most of you know by now that Carla White is my amazing hair and makeup artist. She's taken care of lots of my brides and seniors and made them look absolutely stunning for their portrait sessions. Well, now it's Carla's turn to get in front of the camera... she has been married five years and wanted to do a session, just for fun! We started brain storming and came up with the idea of styling a Snow White bridal session complete with fun accessories, apples, and a mirror. We shopped at Songbirds in Greensboro for our dress... they have everything ranging from brand new, designer wedding dresses to vintage and hard-to-find dresses so it was easy to find the perfect one!

The details :
Dress - Songbirds Consignments
Veil - Voulez Veils by Renee McCardell
Bracelet and flower hairpieces - Petal Pushers Jewelry
Hair and makeup - Carla White

The story begins with our sweet Snow White...
