Magical 1920’s glass Greenhouse Engagement Session

Categories   Engagements

From what we can see, Michelle and Colby are madly in love and have an impeccable taste in fashion. He also knows how to twirl her around in a sequined vintage gown, she knows how to style and design a black dress that kills. They’ll be getting married at a plantation in New Orleans in just a couple of months, but we couldn’t not share these photos asap! Photographer and friend of M + C, Nancy Neil gives us a peek at her gift to them – a fresh, elegant and timeless love sesh in a 1920s abandoned glass greenhouse in Santa Barbara.

Always looking for pre-wedding shoot inspiration. Most are too traditional and romantic! Like the use of light and composition by the photographer, the quirky look of the wedding couple is complemented by the style of photography.

This was such an amazingly magical shoot to be a part of ! Doing her hair & makeup was awesome because she was truly a 'classically romantic" beauty. I (Christin, the hair artist) especially had fun with her curls and playing them up ! And Nancy, words cannot descriibe your talents ! Que bella ! xoxo, Christin & Ashley , owners of LunaBella Make-Up & Hair
