Back at it again with all my ladies of the Photography Stylistas! I won’t say much because I’m chomping at the bit for all of you to see the photos, but I have to give special thanks to everyone involved. Our amazing vendors, models, and stylists… NONE of it would have been possible without the hard work, dedication, and talent of everyone who contributed to this amazing stylized wedding shoot.
When we chose the 1920s Great Gatsby inspired theme weeks ago, I wasn’t exactly sure how it was going to turn out, but everything came together and I’m proud to say it’s probably one of the coolest shoots/experiences I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of thus far. Everything was absolutely incredible and I just don’t think any words can describe how ecstatic I am about every single image.
Alright, enough talking…. let’s get to the good stuff.
We started the morning with an amazing hair stylist, Jillian; make-up artist, Gigi; and stylist, Whitney. Without all three of them, we could not have pulled off such a successful look. Not to mention our gorgeous model, Noelle, who brought her beauty and grace to our shoot.
Once we got to RPM Italian, it all came together as I started shooting with our beautiful Bridesmaid and handsome Groomsman, and set sights on all the incredible details all our gracious vendors so generously donated.
