Dress: Asos (red version still available here) | Glasses: Quay | Ring: old (similar)

I’ve been wanting to shoot at this location pretty much since the day I started blogging 4 years ago, and we FINALLY DID IT!

Can you believe it’s only 30 minutes from our house? It felt as though I was transported to a land of make-believe and I was a real life fairy princess. At heart, I’m OBSESSED with artistic fashion photography, and this shoot made every single one of my dreams come true. My heart is so full of love for these pictures!

Hope you all enjoy them too!
