When Rebeca Abrantes started planning her wedding, she quickly realized she had no girlfriends to give her support. As an engineer in a specialty program, Rebeca is one of only four women. Because of this, she has a lot of guy friends. That’s when it hit her to bust the traditional bridal photos expectation and have fun with her situation.
“I came up with the idea one week before the wedding. I was looking into some “making of” pictures of brides with their gang of girls, all in robes, laughing, drinking champagne and all, and I got a bit sad because I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that”
Rebeca grabbed her five best guy mates and asked the photographer to get creative. With some friends who were willing to get a little silly, Rebeca ended up with a great pre-wedding photo shoot. These guys looked like they had a blast recreating the typical “bridesmaids” photos with their bestie.
