Flappers, 1920s, 2009 and Beyond

I decided to bump our most popular post to the top of the blog!  This one is an oldie but a goodie from January 2009.  Tattooed Flappers.

Somehow I became obsessed with the idea of Tattooed Brides, 1920s - 1940s fashion and thought I'd mix it all together. We were fortunate enough to be able to shoot photos at the wonderful Stotesbury Mansion (also known as the Philo or the Philo Literacy Institute) on 19th and Walnut in Philadelphia. This place looks like you've literally stepped back into 1920 - amazing! (oh yeah and you can host a small wedding here)

So in my crazy mixture of ideas we shot flappers, that were tattooed up. Certainly, if you are an offbeat bride, I'm sure you'd have no problem wearing a flapper dress, as your wedding dress right?

Anyway I'll let the flapper photos do the talking:
