We lovingly called this shoot “Chanelly” because of the Chanel inspiration. A delightful and photogenic real-life couple, unique handmade dresses and amazing 1920′s-inspired hair (plus my carefully chosen makeup palette of smoky gunmetal and plum) made for a mock wedding that was almost too luxurious for words!
I teamed up several times earlier this year with Binita Patel, and I’ve absolutely loved the results. This casual, playful couple’s shoot took place on a sunny day at the International Golf Club & Resort in Bolton, MA (the town where I attended high school, in fact!) Our bride & groom, Claudia & Brian, are a real-life engaged couple. Because Claudia is petite, Binita scouted out an adorable cocktail-length wedding dress from Pure Bliss, complete with pockets.
I used Claudia’s manicure as inspiration for her smoky plum eye makeup, complete with false lashes and peachy cheeks & lips to enhance her gorgeous freckled complexion. And I especially loved what the incredibly talented Maricruz did to her hair!
A few weeks ago I joined the talented Binita Patel and her photo & video team for a stylized shoot at the amazingly gorgeous Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA. The pictures & video clip below feature the adorable (and real-life married couple) Kendra & Matt, with hair by Maricruz and wardrobe/styling by Harper by SEAMS Couture. I loved the color scheme – hello, yellow! – and gave Kendra a modern spin on a vintage look with bold, graphic winged eyeliner and red lips. (I rarely get to do makeup that dramatic for real-life brides, so it’s fun to break the mold a little bit for shoots!)
Check out the video & some of my favorite sneak peek images (thus far!) below:
A few weeks ago I joined the talented Binita Patel and her photography team for a stylized shoot at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank. As luck would have it, we didn’t get to explore the grounds that day (the early Spring rains drove us indoors), but nothing could dampen a stylized shoot featuring a beautiful laughing bride with peaches & cream makeup and watermelon & teal decor! I particularly loved our bride’s infectious smile and stunning hair, sculpted to perfection by Maricruz.
You can view the complete shoot on Binita’s blog; here is an assortment of my favorites:
