From Michael and Carina PhotographyOur inspiration for these bridals was “waiting for spring”. We wanted to add some color and romance to the cold season; we just fell in love with that mix. We are also head over heels in love with everything vintage. So it made sense to combine these loves :) The story behind the images is both a looking-back in a different time period and a looking-forward to a new beginning/spring. The dresses used are never-before-worn originals – dating back to the 30s and 60s. The gorgeous vintage veil is almost 100 years old.The images were shot on medium format film.

The Hope and Glory Inn in Irvington, VA is a popular wedding venue and we wanted to “foreshadow” the weddings that are going to be celebrated there this coming wedding season with our shoot. It is also leading into the time that most brides get their bridal portraits done.
