I had the pleasure of meeting some incredible women in a local creatives group who put out an invite to do a styled bridal shoot. The goal was rustic modern minimalist engagement and bridal portraits. The location could not have been more perfect for the set! Completely tucked away in a San Diego residential area-turned-commercial, the Soul Care House is just about the tiniest, most perfect modern industrial rustic mini barn I have ever seen. Seriously, if you blink, you'll miss it! The shoot went amazingly well, with our model Gavriella Najera (who swears she isn't a model) glowing like a stunning modern bride wearing an elegant Free People dress. If you're looking for inspiration on simple, cost effective, and elegant ways to make your wedding day shine without looking cheap, take a look at the photos below!


I'd love to hear your feedback on what we created!
