With a vision to create magic through their lens, Los Angeles Fashion and Beauty Photographer, Kimberly Tran, collaborated with La Chenille Bridal Bikini to capture the essence of romance and luxury with Chenille’s new bridal swim collection. Below, Tran shares her insights into the origins of the styled shoot and the collaborative efforts that brought it to life.

Q: What was the inspiration for the theme/style of the shoot? How did the location of the shoot influence it?

A: “This collection serves as a love note to the gardens that bloom during the darkest of hours. Wildflowers that grow gracefully under the light of the moon have turned into crystal emblazoned tulle with oversized floral appliqués. This luxury bridal beachwear collection elevates the most romantic beach or poolside moments of a bride’s life.”

Q: How did the team of vendors work together?

A: “We all provided our skills and talent to this project from designing the sets, the makeup, the wardrobe, the photographs, to the post-production of the images.”

Q: What was your favorite part of the shoot and why?

A: “Our favorite part of the shoot was problem-solving together as a team and creating beautiful images to showcase the new luxury bridal beachwear collection.”
