In Fine Feather: A Moody Bridal Shoot with a Beautifully Dark, Dramatic Dress
Photos By Sweet Blooms Photography

We’re giving a final hurrah to Halloween with this darkly entrancing bridal shoot in a palette of peacock green, midnight blue, raven black, and charred scarlet with pops of burnished gold. Dreamed up by California-based photographer Dee Carlin of Sweet Blooms Photography, the shoot centered around a dramatic dress that Dee herself designed and made entirely by hand. Sheer panels gave the gorgeous gown come-hither allure, and finespun beadwork set it asparkle like the night sky, but it’s pièce de résistance was its iridescently feathered capelet, which gave rise to the transfixing color scheme used throughout.
“Inspired by the idea of a scorned bride, the concept for the dress began with the neckline and shoulders, which were covered with more than a hundred crows feathers,” Dee says. “The rest of the dress was made of beautiful silks and tulle.”
