Another beautiful Elopement in McKinney Falls with the loveliest couple that came so prepared . . they DIYed their wedding arch decoration for their alter and the bouquet was made out of fresh and dried flowers all made by them. We are in talks for shooting another session for them which I am so excited and looking definitely forward to it.
I submitted couple of the images from this set to Photovogue Italia and this last image was accepted - this marked the 15th image on my portfolio which I am very excited about, looking forward to making more.
Last weekend we had lunch with Josh’s cousin in H Mart (Grocery store) and during the conversation they requested if we could shoot them for a quick set for their upcoming baby shower. Luckily I had my camera with me so we found an empty lit wall and shot this set quickly in the grocery store.
It has been a while since I worked on a creative editorial style makeup, this was for a hair salon competition with Eufora and unfortunately we did not get to be selected. Each model was supposed to represent an element such as fire, earth, water etc you know the drill hehehe . . my main goal as a makeup artist working on hair competition contests is to not over shadow the hair styles as this is supposed to be hair focus event. When designing the makeup I make sure I speak to the hair stylist clearly to understand her/his vision and the overall concept. Since I try to take inspiration for the makeup from the hairstyle itself I usually try to do the makeup last and when the hair is completely finished or if we are in time crunch I would start the base makeup and finish the makeup when the hair is completed.
I had the opportunity to do the makeup and photograph one of my bride's grandparent's 50th anniversary in June. I did the makeup for my bride Courtney two years ago, her family reached out and asked if I could do the makeup for her Grandmother and photograph the ceremony. I am always so grateful for the opportunity to work with the same family multiple times and be part of their happiest moments. This anniversary was filled with love and happiness, Courtney's grandmother was so caring and took care of everyone even me, Josh was my second shooter for this event and we truly had a fantastic day - if weddings and events could be this laidback and fun I'd photograph them all the time.
