Monday, December 20, 2010

Whitney was one of my most favorite brides this year! She is so incredibly beautiful but not just her looks make her special! She is the sweetest ever! She has the most lovely family ever!!! I felt like one of them by the end of the day!!! Everything about this wedding was intimate and special! Whitney created a whole rustic, love filled event! It was amazing!!! She envisioned something loose and organic looking for her hair and so we created a side swept loose bun! It was gorgeous and so soft on her!! Joie de vie designs created a custom hair accessory for the big day! It was heaven!! For Whitney's makeup, she wanted something soft and clean. With Whitney's beauty it didn't take much!! Overall stunning bride! Check out the amazing details and feature at Style Me Pretty!!!

Featured on Green Wedding Shoes! Pretty in Pink!

Pretty in Pink!!! I was enlisted in this sweet and girly shoot with this amazing group of vendors!! We wanted a rich neutral eye and swept up hair that would lend itself to various looks with veils and accessories. We were all really thrilled with the sweet outcome and with the feature from Green Wedding Shoes!

Couture Christmas!

My dear friend Hanssie and her lovely family enlisted the amazing Kristin Rogers to photograph their Christmas pictures this year! I was on the glamming end!! I've worked with Hanssie for a couple years now and we have become friends!! I always have such a great talking shopping and girl talk with her! She gave me free reign for this shoot and I ran with it! Hanssie loves makeup and hair so I wanted to give her something that was smokey and gorgeous without being to overdone for makeup and soft and pretty for hair. With families it is tough because you are doing a lot more candid poses and so I thought that having Hanssie's hair back would be ideal! Merry Christmas from the Trainor family!

Featured on Grey Likes Weddings!!! Jen and Kevin!

I first met Jen when she was a bridesmaid for her friend Ashely! We hit it off right away while I beautified the girls at Ashley's wedding. When Kevin popped the question early last year Jen called me to be a part of it!!!! I was so excited!!! Jen's wedding was so beautiful!!! She looked like a dream!! Jen wanted something slightly retro and vintage for her hair and wanted something soft and pretty for her makeup. I was lucky to know Jen's face pretty well by then and so it was play time for me. Brandon Kidd captured the day! Jen had a very clear vision of what she wanted and was a great researcher when it came to amazing DIY style wedding ideas. She did everything! Jen is not only lovely but so creative!!! We have since had lots of conversations about crafting and home decor!!! We were all excited to have this amazing love filled wedding featured on Grey Likes Wedding! Check out the rest of the pics at Brandon's website.

The amazing and lovely woman behind Wai Photo enlisted my help for some new photos for her website and Christmas card! I adore working with Wai and we had so much fun playing dress up!! Wai doesn't doll herself up much so she gave me free reign!! I think she looked so lovely! Merry Christmas from Wai Photo!

Behind the scenes of Serra Plaza shoot

I was asked by my dear friend Mary at Jay's Catering and Kerry at De-Luxe events to pretty up the models for the new Serra Plaza campaign. I adore these girls and was in!!! Serra Plaza is a gorgeous Spanish wedding venue in San Juan Capistrano. The day was full of delish treats from Jay's and tons of laughs with the girls behind the scenes. Thought I'd share it from more raw end!

Official shoot for Serra Plaza was photographed by EMP Studio
