Leanne Marshall + Griffith Observatory

A Leanne Marshall dress moves like no other. I have admired Leanne’s dresses and bridal line since her Project Runway days. This year I photographed her gold and gray gown at Griffith Observatory with dancer Mariana Carrillo. She is an accomplished ballerina and dancer who studied at the prestigious USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance.

Leanne Marshall Bridal

The colors of this Leanne Marshall gown were made for this California location. Soft light bounced off the white observatory and gave a golden glow in the morning. Mariana moved effortlessly and was so brilliant to photograph. If I could shoot this every day I would.

If you are searching for an off-white or colored wedding dress you should definitely consider this bridal brand. In addition, each year the Leanne Marshall sample sale takes place online. Dresses come in a variety of sizes, and offer the opportunity for multiple wedding weekend looks or a unique addition to your wardrobe.

I flew to LA for a few projects. The first was this shoot in LA. The second was in Santa Barbara. The third was a wedding editorial at Sunstone Winery with Type A Society. I’m even more grateful for these trips now that we are all inside for a while. However, I’m dreaming up my next project and it could be with you.
