With Halloween around the corner, everyone is prepping to dress up in goofy costumes and scary makeup. But how about a gothic wedding? Photographer Jewels Gray has added a spin to the regular wedding photo shoots and styled a Gothic wedding that seems to illustrate a dark fairy tale. Gray has designed a complete ghostly wedding shoot and the results are romantic, intricate, and spine-chilling at the same time.
While the bride in the photographs had a stone-cold essence of Snow White, with milky white skin and jet black hair, the shoot was complete with a black wedding dress, gold skull rings, and even a real boa constrictor. Gray who has been a wedding photographer for a long time now, conducted several themed photo-shoots for his sample album. Talking about the gothic shoot, Gray in his blog reveals that this particular shoot has put together for his students to shoot so they can build their portfolios.
The photographer in his blog further said that "This year I wanted something dark and moody, so we went with “Gothic Wedding”! I absolutely love this style personally. In fact, everything the Bride ended up wearing is from my personal collection (if it wasn’t hers)!"
The perfect amalgamation of gothic vibes and charming wedding feels has grabbed the attention of the audience. Everything that was needed for the shoot was brought from vendors in the St. Louis area, but the bride and groom brought some of their own pieces to complete the shoot. "Sabrina's shoes and earrings were her own, and I about died when I saw the shoes she brought!" Jewels said in her blog. As for the groom, Simba was dressed head-to-toe in black (complete with black nail polish) and brought his own motorcycle boots to finish off his look.
Adding to everything that is already spooky, live snakes were brought in for the shoot as the bride was seen posing with the same. Check out this spooky wedding shoot ahead of Halloween to feel the chills down your spine.
