In my shoot I was going for a Caribbean, elegant and romantic vibe that displays the purest and simplest expressions of love through the bond of a mother and daughter on the wedding day. My vision came to me from a conversation I had with my cousin who was getting married and she expressed her wants of having a mother-daughter dance on her wedding day to highlight their relationship. This concept is very personal to me because it’s a moment that I’ve never experienced and I want to inspire other women to experience this moment. Additionally, my shoot has a generational focus because my cousin has a daughter. I wanted to incorporate that family aspect into the shoot because I find it very beautiful. I chose the colors black, green, and gold because they remind me of the Jamaican flag; however, in place of the yellow I incorporated the gold. Those colors highlight the elements of elegance, royalty and strength. The colors rose, sage, and ivory bring out the softness and delicacy of a black woman and child. These remind me of the beauty of our skin, our features, and poise. I believe that this shoot is a great inspiration for a fall wedding. Lastly, I always try to incorporate some sort of Caribbean flare to all of my events.
