For her bridal shoot, Gabi, a make up artist from Rio, wanted something modern but with a boho twist. Her wedding dress was made for her and inspired by a Chanel gown she saw at a runway show. She chose a cool and elegant hotel in Santa Teresa, a bohemian neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro, for the location.

“The place is truly amazing, with perfect natural lighting and art objects”, explained photographer Marina Lomara. “I loved having the opportunity to photograph a bride so beautiful there. Here in Brazil, wedding photographers generally just have just a few minutes for the bride’s portraits on a wedding day so it was amazing to have two hours to shoot here. Gabi loves to be photographed and made sure to have a special photo session before going to the party. She did her own make up and with the short dress, pixie hair cut and dark red lips she looked like an actress right out of the 1940s.”

  1. wow, what you’ve experienced is just bad. Yes, you are right, nobody has the right to judge someone just because he or she is dressed scruffily! Anyway, is it just me, or your model kinda look like Lady Gaga? 😀 That wedding dress is ahh-mazing! 🙂

  2. This sums up “R’n’R bride” for me.
    Great attitude and a wonderful set if images. (fantastic ink,too!)
    “Sticking it to the man” is always important too! 🙂
