The beauty of capturing a styled bridal at the Julia Ideson Library in downtown Houston is that as soon as you step into the building you already have one of the most classic Spanish Renaissance inspired structures as your backdrop. Built in 1926…it was the only building of its type completed before the Great Depression in the 1920’s. Starting off with Samantha wearing the Brianna gown created by Israeli dress designer Birenzweig on the third floor of the library with its amazingly created ceiling architecture was an excellent beginning. The reading room with its majestically high roof and beautiful arches created a fantastic bridal mood for both dark and light inspired bridal photographs.
In the next scene we have Samantha wearing the classic Simone gown from Kelly Faetanini. We started off shooting in the Margerett Root Brown Foyer which had beautiful marble tile floors reflecting light from the amazing skylight. Next we went to the front courtyard of the Julia Ideson which is probably the most picturesque location within the downtown Houston city area which had the majestic Spanish Architecture of the library on full display. Finishing in the circulation area of the library allow for some stunning captures of Samantha through the reflection of windows.
