Living on Maui we are accustomed to gorgeous views in any direction, a photographers dream! However, the island life lacks the ability to gaze off into the horizon and see no end to the land available to explore. The inspiration for this fashion bridal shoot was born from the desire to transform an expansive, rugged, static background into a comfortable setting for the wanderlust filled bride.
Tamara Catz designed this wedding gown along with her entire bridal and fashion lines at her studio in Paia, Maui. The designs are then sent off to Bali for quality craftsmanship. This particular dress has a layered skirt that flows when you move or catches in the wind, creating a delicate and ethereal feel. The fitted bodice is sequined and beaded, giving the gown an accent of glamour. This gorgeous gown on the stunning Aminata by Envy Model Management was a pleasure to photograph.
Mahalo to the many talents who helped make this possible:
