We're totally loving this gorgeous photo shoot by MLKL Photography and its use of local artisans and goods. Where else but Brooklyn could you find so many talented people? We're loving each and every inch from the pretty pink heels to the flirty, couture dress. The colors are oh-so-gorgeous, a perfect way to welcome in Spring in our book and you can see even more right here in the full gallery!
From Melissa of MLKL Photography... This styled shoot combines my passions for fashion and wedding photography. As a photographer, I don't just shoot weddings, I help my brides source original, local pieces that will set their wedding and photos apart – all while telling the story of the places they love. It’s all about personalization. And in this shoot – it’s all about Brooklyn, the bride's hometown. The bride gives a gentle nod to her home by exclusively featuring local designers in the most important elements of her day. And while her style may be simple, its a far cry from modest! Sparing no detail, the bride is embellished with shoes lending a pop of color — specially customized for this occasion with the addition of braided blush ribbon and strands of black gemstones. Her DIY bouquet was a kaleidoscope of flowers assembled from local Brooklyn markets. Her ring is a unique design from local artisans at Fitzgerald Jewelry. And best of all, she is adorned with a gown customized by a local master of exquisite wedding couture, Samuelle Couture. Everything was shot in Brooklyn’s beautiful Prospect Park this spring.
