Ballet-Inspired Bridal Shoot | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

This ballet-Inspired bridal shoot was so much fun to photograph! Ballet holds a special place in my heart, as before I became a photographer, I trained as a ballet dancer and even went to NYU’s Tisch School of Dance.  During that time, I also worked in performing arts administration at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in NYC. My love for the arts and ballet has influenced and inspired my photography. Needless to say, this bridal shoot was the perfect combination of the graceful and elegant movements I love from ballet and the beauty and romance of weddings. 

Ballet-Inspired Bridal Shoot

The beauty of a ballet-inspired bridal photoshoot lies in the details. The bride modeled two different wedding dresses. One was a white flowy, ethereal gown with delicate lace details, reminiscent of a ballerina’s tutu. The second dress was a champagne color that included a long tulle train. Air Hair and Makeup did a wonderful job. The bride’s makeup was subtle, with a focus on enhancing the bride’s natural beauty. The images capture the essence of femininity and elegance, from the tutu inspired wedding gowns to the intricate pointe shoes.

The photoshoot took place at Hazel Dust Creative Studio. The light space of the studio provided ample natural light and open space, which was perfect for creating a ballet-inspired atmosphere. I captured the bride’s graceful, flowing movements, creating stunning, ethereal, and romantic images, that also captured the essence of ballet. From the delicate details of the bride’s dress, to her graceful movements, the joyful, light-hued flowers, and the stunning creative design by and studio by Hazel Dust, this ballet-inspired photoshoot was a dream.
