Let’s make something beautiful!
Who doesn’t like a romantic bride and well, I’ve always been a fan of nostalgia. RCB Fashion, Erin Gray Photography and myself teamed up to blend the two!
This was the shoot of the 3 Erins and a Susan! Ha! Erin of RCB Fashion, Erin of Erin Gray Photography, our fabulous model Erin Burrell and me of Susan Gramling Artistry. While it did get a bit confusing on location, you can see for yourself that what we ended up with was exactly what we set out to do!
Nostalgia by definition is a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. It’s influence and meaning is limitless and personal.
Erin, of RCB fashion, organically found her inspiration in the romanticism and nostalgia of the 1920′s. Art Deco fashion featured linear symmetry and embraced beauty and glamour!!!
Delicate fabrics and intricate beading add romance and offset the geometric lines of this beautiful and classic wedding gown hand created by RCB Fashion! The dress has sleek lines and symmetry, while keeping a beautiful, feminine shape and vintage feel. It’s truly a stunner!
I can’t tell you how many beautiful designs I’ve seen Erin create over the years because there are just too many to count! She truly pours her heart into every dress she creates and you can see it in the quality of craftsmanship and in the beauty of her designs! I highly recommend contacting RCB Fashion for your custom wedding dress!
The beautiful countryside of Canton, Georgia, Erin Gray‘s hometown, gives a real since of nostalgia for those longing to get back to their roots for a rustic wedding.
Majestic and wise Oak trees over 100 years old, battered barnyards long forgotten and seemingly endless rolling fields of pasture were the choice of this award winning photo journalist! Uuuuum these images are amazing! I would love to live in Erin Gray’s mind and see the world the way she does!

A recent blog I wrote about finger waves already had my hands itching to do the hair style again for a photo shoot! RCB Fashions’s vintage style wedding dress inspired me to use a slight interpretation of 1920′s era makeup but, I kept the eye makeup much softer than traditionally worn. The landscape lent itself to a natural feel and I left the lips nude for most of the shoot.
By the end of the shoot the location had a much cooler tone and feel to it. I wanted to brighten up our model, Erin Burell, with a cheerful dose of warm coral lips!
I couldn’t get over this last look of Erin in front of the ivy! It has an interesting air about it. It’s Red Carpet meets English countryside! Erin is an absolute knock out and such a pleasure to work with! In fact, that sentence applies to all three Erins! We all had so much fun on this shoot and I’m looking forward to the next time 3 Erins and a Susan get together to create something beautiful!
