It’s like when you were a little girl, trying on your mother’s clothes. A dress is more than just fabric covering a body; it can hold a feeling, a memory… and nothing is more special than a wedding dress. When you put on a dress that was worn by someone close to you you get sense of how they felt that day, bringing you both closer than ever. Whether they have left this earth or not, that emotion and energy still remains.

I’m so happy to finally have some nice shots of this dress that I have worked on for quite awhile. A little bittersweet that it is all coming to an end. The dress will remain in my possession of course, using it as a fine example of restoring a vintage wedding gown to future clients. You can read all about this shoot it in my last post!
