Mardi Gras Wedding Style Inspiration Shoot


Tampa photographer Carrie Wildes and a bunch of talented Florida-based vendors put together a beautiful Mardi Gras-inspired wedding fashion shoot complete with black feathers, glittery masks, and lots of beads in purple, green, and gold.  This styled shoot may be a tad late for this year’s Fat Tuesday but it’s still very much worth a look-see.

From Carrie:

I lived in New Orleans for a little while but didn’t get to experience Mardi Gras so I’m always wishing I’m there on Fat Tuesday.  🙂 Part of what I love about my profession is coming up with creative ideas to continue improving and making them happen! So this was a little bit of inspiration that turned into a really cool shoot. We actually did the session on fat Tuesday and Ybor is as close as I could get to the French Quarter feel. Feathers, bead covered florals and mask, beautiful wedding gown and fabulous models, Bobby and Cienne at the Roosevelt set the scene. I just wanted a simple, rough background and an alleyway I could light purple so we used a video light and off camera flash to create a dramatic effect. Here’s a little behind the scenes and also some of my favs.
