subtropical bridals with must-see flowers

From photographer Anna Bamm “The subtropical garden with its scents and sounds inspired us for this wonderful and colorful bridal portrait inspiration shoot. Unlike the streets of St. Petersburg in Russia, which at the time were gray and melting into the coming spring, the greenhouse was a completely different world filled with flowering azaleas, camellias, and magnolias.”

“The story we imagined involved our red-headed Maria, kissed by the sun on both cheeks, found a key to a mysterious door leading to a wonderful world. The sun itself could not stand aside and illuminated the whole garden. Magic, we concluded, is what pushes, raises, and make things of nothing. And from the magic of this hidden subtropical world, our shoot was born.”

“The colors remind one of watercolors: spring leaves, beautiful red hair, and golden threads. The scent was simply amazing and Maria’s dress looked as if its tulle skirt and vintage layers were drawn with a brush.”
