Extraordinary work by San Francisco photographer, Gene Higa

Our good friend, and local SF based Photographer, Gene Higa, recently completed this amazing photo shoot! All of the accessories seen in this photo shoot are designed by Haute Bride and available at our San Francisco Bridal Salon.

A great shot of our new B442 pearl cuff bracelet with handmade Swarovski Brooch.
A shot with San Francisco's finest is always necessary...
Love this picture of the Ribbon Brooch headband! Not sure of the designer of this gown,
but it looks like an Alvina Valenta?

Love the versatility of this piece.
It can be worn as a necklace or a dramatic back piece!

About the photo shoot: (In Gene's words)
Robert Evans and Curt Appanovich the creators of
photography mentor were in San Francisco last week, for the Photo-fusion Tour. Some of you may know of Robert Evans, he shot Tom Cruise + Katie Holmes and Brad Pitt’s first wedding to Jennifer Aniston a couple of years back. Amazing! They were kind enough to ask me to do a wedding model photoshoot. Photography Mentor is a educational website for the up and coming or seasoned wedding photographer. Photography Mentor is one of the best social medias out there for wedding photographers in San San Francisco and abroad. Jaime Dollaga is THE amazing San Francisco based model who was happy to be my bride for the day. Armando Sarabia got her do up and glammed up her make up. All of her amazing handmade jewelery was from Lindsie Jones of Haute Bride and Jose gave me the dress. Thanks everyone for the hook up.
