Alex & Kristjan – Bridal Portraits In the Dwell Hotel, Chattanooga
My absolute favorite book is The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald has this tangible way of writing in that everything he says, I can see it, taste it, touch it. His vividly descriptive writing set amidst the Roaring Twenties creates a glitzy masterpiece I will forever love. Below is a mix of starry brilliance, rich textures, and an absolutely stunning couple. The Dwell Hotel is one of my favorite spots in Chattanooga, and it was such a dream to shoot here. With so many dynamic spaces and metallic accents, every spot around this boutique hotel guarantees an incredible aesthetic. I loved working with Alex and Kristjan because they’re such a lively but laidback couple. Alex had warned me she couldn’t keep a straight face, which I assured her was fine since she has such a radiant smile! However, she managed a few straight faces here and there, overall adding some moodiness and mystique. All in all, I’m so very obsessed with these images and am thrilled to share them with you! Please check out the incredible vendors below because their hard work paid off. I highly recommend working with them, as they all so carefully pay attention to details and produced striking art. From the silver eyeliner to the insanely gorgeous bouquet, all the elements of this day blended together seamlessly.
