Gold Rush: Fashion-Forward Bridal and Engagement Shoot by MANICPROJECT
Sometimes, all that glitters is gold. Take, for example, this fashion-forward bridal and engagement shoot featuring local couple (and recent newlyweds!) Jess Reese and Paul Garbett. Jess envisioned a high-fashion concept for her bridal and engagement photos (think more Vogue, less Brides), and editorial-style photographer Phillip Istomin of MANICPROJECT was just the guy for the gig.
For the shoot, Jess wore a curve-hugging sequined gold dress with long sleeves and a front-slit silk skirt by DVF Diane Von Furstenberg. We love her fresh look, from head to toe–she dressed her tresses with a floral crown of baby’s breath, and chose strappy gladiator sandals for her bridal footwear. Paula Dahlberg provided hair and makeup. Not to be outdone in the fashion department, Paul is every inch the dapper groom in a slim fitting Zara suit, skinny black tie, and black Ray-Ban specs. The couple’s photo shoot took place in studio and on location at the new(ish) Natural History Museum of Utah, a sleek venue for contemporary nuptials.
