Grace and beauty in French paintings


With details in proper style, golden accents and a graceful young woman Jenny Tong takes us back to the 17th and 18th century to inspires us with the portraits of a bride.

 „I’ve been truly obsessed with the grace and beauty in French paintings. They illustrated a woman’s grace, piquant charm, and unstudied elegance by every little detail which makes them far more than just a portrait of a fabulous lady, they are art.“ the talented photographer explained.

Rich turquoise is the noble backdrop for pure splendor unfolding all its facets. Flowers and leaves appear even fresher, gold shines even more sublime and the dark wood of antique furniture stands out even better.

„We chose a very distinctive color palette: turquoise & vintage sienna, with a touch of cream. And we carefully selected some 17th and 18th antiques and dress to tell a comprehensive story.“ Jenny Tong told us proudly.

The florists Karen and Jeeryn of Petite Petals did not leave Jenny´s side to crown the authentic setting and every motif with their elaborate flower arrangements.

The results are incredibly graceful pictures shot by Jenny Tong, that honor their paragons, the century old portraits. Don´t you think?
