Modern Bridal Style with a Short Dress

Southern-Germany-Engagement-Photos | feature-image

When a couple both work in fashion, you can place a pretty sure bet that they’re going to have amazing style for their photos. For Debbie, that meant embracing her style and choosing a unique, short dress with eyelet style lace. The flirty skirt is perfectly toned down thanks to demure long sleeves and a mock turtleneck. Set against the backdrop of a centuries’ old German castle, Debbie and Almin’s photos tell their story in a unique way. And wouldn’t their style be perfect to steal for your modern wedding?

Read on for more from the photographer, Karina Papadopoulos: 
“This is the story of two lovely people, Debbie and Almin, both entrepreneurs in the fas)hion industry, who met for the first time at a fashion show in Milan. Debbie and Almin took an hour to record a personal photo-shooting moment, in the background of a 13th century Castle in southern Germany. The idyllic landscape has been an inspiration for both, since they grew up in the countryside, a place so familiar, full of wonderful childhood memories.

The old German castle, which is located in the heart of the Black Forest, makes a bold statement of a once-upon-a-time medieval grandeur, revived again eloquently through sensitive camera lens. Surrounded by the beauty of nature it becomes a rich source of inspiration, folklore and beautiful symbols, generating an energy to create fine art film photography.

Beautiful Deborah poses both with Almin and alone, wearing a modern, short ruffled white lace dress by Self Portrait. Adding her unique style and take on fashion, she topped it with a white oversized statement collar wool coat by Max Mara. Almin is wearing an elegant dark blue stripe suit accented by a classic bow-tie. This autumn attire was completed with an amazing organic bouquet and gave a depth to the soft natural color palette inspired by the forest.”
