When you combine steam-powerered machinery, with the fashion of late 19th century Victorian era, the result is an edgy, fashionable look at history. This style is known as "Steampunk."

Steampunk incorporates elements of fantasy, historical fiction, as well as elements of speculation. It is dark, bold and it happens to be trending lately. Steampunk is a them that many couples are incorporating into their weddings. Recently many San Diego wedding vendors collaborated to produce this scene for an amazing photoshoot that captured the best elements of this fascination genre. 

It started like all good things, as an idea, an idea fabricated by Ann Strobel of Ann's Plans, Shannon Henry of Studio Carre and myself. We were intrigued by the elements of Steampunk and noticed the growing trend among couples to incorporate Steampunk elements into their weddings. So the seed was planted. 

Set on location at the historic Mt. Woodson Castle in Ramona, CA, the castle's rustic design fit perfectly for the shoot that takes you back in time.
