Photographer Kishana Highgate wanted to do more than shoot a gorgeous inspirational wedding when she planned this styled photo session in Washington, DC. She wanted to inspire young brides who are facing a breast cancer diagnosis – letting them know that they can still have their dream wedding day despite cancer. Kishana, a breast cancer survivor herself, worked with various shades of pink for her inspirational shoot, and brought on model Vonetta, who is also a breast cancer survivor.
“The wedding of their dreams can still come true even if they are diagnosed with cancer,” Kishana told us. “I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been touched by breast cancer in some form or another. I encourage young brides to fight!”
We’re proud to bring you Kishana’s beautiful photographs, which we find inspirational in more than one way.
