In editorial, creatives come together and experiment with new things, fine tuning their skills and expanding their portfolio. To create this styled shoot, we focused on the fashions forecasted for 2020 and seen on the bridal runways earlier this year.

Many don’t realize the work that goes on behind the scenes to organize a styled shoot. It takes a big team of like-minded creatives eager to share their talents and think outside the box to create an “editorial” look. In the wedding industry, vendors cater to the client’s wishes. In editorial, creatives come together and experiment with new things, fine tuning their skills and expanding their portfolio. The purpose of the editorial styled shoot is to inspire readers to try something they may not have seen before.

Imaginably this photoshoot will inspire you to try new colors, such as a berry lip with soft shimmery eyes, a deep blue suit, or a head-piece instead of a veil. Or maybe it will encourage you to flutter about in angelic sleeves on your big day. ML
