Monumental Church VA Styled Shoot. Photographer Jessica Maida fell in love with Frida’s creative expression while studying Spanish in Mexico and used this to fuel her inspiration for a styled shoot at the Monumental Church in Richmond, Virginia.
The shoot incorporates two contrasting looks. The first is a realistic interpretation of Kahlo’s own unique sense of style with a long handmade floral skirt, flower crown, and bold red lip.
The bride is surrounded by stunning self-portraits along with the brightest flower arrangements.
The second look shows a much softer side.
The bride wears a strapless lace gown and carries a bouquet full of pastel-colored roses and succulents.
Her makeup is soft and her hair is pinned in a neat updo as she waits patiently at the wooden arbor.
Several notable additions are also incorporated to enhance the creative element including paper flowers for the coral-colored cake, the vintage easel, the endless swags of greenery, and the laser-cut invitations.
