It's not often that the groom is in the spotlight but today Southern California wedding photographer CZAR GOSS is changing that for us with this 'love letters' editorial that he styled himself. Inspired to tell the story of the hopeless romantic – the gentleman who still takes the time write love letters but is too afraid to send them, it features stacks of handwritten letters and envelopes - all beautifully created by Nicole of EVERY LITTLE LETTER. Czar tells us, "While falling in love is certainly a euphoric experience, it also means that one must confront overwhelming feelings of vulnerability and uncertainty. Hanna from ECHO FLORAL says, “I was hoping to achieve a feeling of classic romance with a touch of modern design.” She did a wonderful job with selecting colours and tones to highlight the beauty of the vintage ETABLIR pieces that the florals rested on. With this being so personal to me, it was important for me to cast a male person of colour. I knew LORENZO would do an amazing job with this editorial. I am happy to have styled a shoot that focuses on two demographics I feel are underrepresented in the vast ocean of wedding editorials."
A huge thanks to Southern California wedding photographer CZAR GOSS for sharing this beautiful wedding inspiration with us today. Czar's passion and talent for photography have taken him to destinations around the world. Capturing the quiet moments, the lively moments, and everything in between is what draws Czar to wedding photography; the communication that takes place with the look of an eye or the caress of a hand, the power of the written and spoken word, the locations and details that couples carefully curate as part of their wedding day. It's all captured artistically and with meticulous intent. You can see more work from this Southern California wedding photographer in our vendor guide.
