The Story of Cinderella

cinderella inspired shoot

Photographers Brittney + Hunter at Three Nails Photography are often told by brides, that “they what to look like Cinderella on their wedding day.” Inspired by this, they decided to turn the classic fairy tale into a modern story for some gorgeous inspiration for us all! Evangeline + Chris are the sweet couple in the photos (a real couple) and yes, the bird is a real bird! They decided to cut out the whole fairy godmother situation and instead made it as if Cinderella made the dress herself which I totally love. :)
