Today we have a fabulous photographer, Bruna Lacerda who is taking a stand making the wedding industry stop and take notice to plus size brides. I love this because of course my main objective has always been to carve a place out for plus size brides in an industry that doesn’t even realize that we exist by bring plus size brides inspiration that looks like them! So I’m so excited to share the first styled shoot in her series, partnered with our good friends over at Lovely Bride, to highlight the beauty that comes with a bride, in every size.
From the Photographer: My name is Bruna and I’m a photographer based in New York, and besides my work with wedding photography, I am also a fashion photographer, and I focus a lot of my work on the plus size industry, and like any other industry there’s a lack of representation of plus size women, and the majority of the bridal industry it’s no different . I hear so many bad experiences starting with the first one, picking your dress. This shouldn’t be something you are afraid to do, your wedding day is something that you are looking forward to and is the most special day of your life. You should not be afraid to put on a wedding dress on and you should feel beautiful the way you are.
Luckily some companies are now carrying bigger sizes, not only that, giving you beautiful choices as well, and not just “that one that fits”.
Join the conversation while I try to highlight that all brides are beautiful and they deserve to be well represented by the bridal companies. So excited to share the first shoot of a series of other ones that I will be doing this year for this project, to highlight the beauty that comes with a bride, in every size.
My focus is to create beautiful images that inspire you to be feel more beautiful and confident on your wedding day while also sending a message to the Bridal companies to pay more attention to all the Plus Size brides.
