The models in the Melissa Rodwell Chapel series are perfectly brooding and unequivocally sensual. The dim, candle-lit setting adds to the mysterious feel of this shoot. Black tulle, veils, rosaries and dark makeup exemplify gothic glamour.

The religious backdrop is both startling and innovative. I especially love the reflection of stained glass windows and the use of crucifixes’ and church alter to project the setting. The Melissa Rodwell Chapel editorial emotes a dark, macabre mood.
