Every now and again we like a bit of drama here on Magnolia Rouge and when that drama looks as stunning as this bridal inspiration by Portland wedding photographer CARLOS HERNANDEZ we can't resist it! It was an desire to create something different, something outside of their usual approach for this Portland team of creatives. The result is a modern-day Belle from Beauty and the Beast. 

"A lush experience fit for a princess was created with CLAIRE LA FAYE'S “Saffron” gown as the star of the show. All of the details of this shoot came together as a glimpse of what may found in the castle with decadent textures from BBJ LINEN'S velvet line, regal paper details from the UK’s Crimson Letters, a statement-piece cake by NATALIE DEHAVEN CAKES, and fragrant florals created by MOLLY RYAN FLORAL all styled by KAMEA EVENTSCASSANDRA KENNEDY brought our model’s look all together with refined hair & makeup styling. Carlos Hernandez captured every majestic detail effortlessly, completing our tale as old as time."

Thanks to Portland wedding photographer CARLOS HERNANDEZ for sharing this beautiful dramatic wedding inspiration with us today. Carlos creates photos that are full of life and express beauty in an honest way. For this reason, he chooses to photograph people in an organic nature with medium format film. "This allows me to slow down and turn my eye to detail in order to document moments that are meaningful. I am moved by sincerity, gestures of purity, and the disappearing value of the tangible."
