Blogging is not my cup of tea obviously but I am very proud of this shoot & it has ignited me to start blogging so hooray for that
Every year around this time, after the craziness that is summer & wedding season, I have some time to step outside of my box & team up with other girl bosses who want to create something new & exciting.
This session took place on Capitol Hill, Seattle & was the first time I got to be in front of the camera as well as manning the editing process. The AMAZING Caitlin of Caitlin McConnico Photography met up with all of us gals & we are so glad she was able to shoot this with us because she totally rocked it!
Below is the first stop where we stumbled upon a beautifully graffitied wall…is that even a word? I don’t know but it is now
The dress was borrowed from the elegant little shop called Laineemeg Bridal located in downtown Snohomish, Washington. Such a unique bunch of dresses & they really are on top of helping you get the look you are wanting and taking the time to allow you to do so
The glamorous sparkly black dress is rented from Rent The Runway which I always have heard of but never used. Needless to say, our first experience totally knocked it out of the park
The jewelry was a huge factor in this shoot to add some edge to the looks we had going on! Julie Stull from JES Design Studio creates these fabulous pieces by hand and you can get some of your own from her gorgeous etsy shop
Makeup & hair of course made the entire shabang come together & I must say I was feeling STUNNING with that red lipstick! Never had I worn such gorgeous makeup. It was such a cool thing to see my bare “just woken up” face go from what you can imagine it was looking like, to what you see here
Huge shout out to Caitlin Austin for the makeup magic & Huge shout out to Shauna Boser for the rocker-chic hair! I seriously wore my hair like this for two days because I loved it so much. Yes I got some crazy stares at the grocery store & I didn’t even care haha
The walls around this area allowed for a perfect touch even down to the sign that said “Union” especially since it was based on two brides & on Capitol Hill
The final & main location we shot was Sole Repair Shop. This spot is an event space open to anyone & it held the PERFECT location spot for our more styled table and cake set up.
The table settings & cakes/cake toppers were all created by the creative minds of Jami King & Brie’n Miller
Both are also teaming up to help style my Christmas/Fall mini sessions this year which is going to be AMAZING!!
