What an honor it was to work with this team of talented and passionate professionals to pull together this Styled Bridal Shoot. A cabin in the back woods of KY on a crisp Fall day provided a lovely backdrop for our chosen theme.
For the first look I chose a soft pink smokey eye with the emphasis on the lips in a gorgeous deep berry. Brandy's skin is typically oily but because I knew I would be there for touch ups and because it was a cold dry day I took the risk and used MK Luminous foundation. This formula has such a beautiful rich, dewy finish.It held up throughout the shoot with minimal touch up required. Ainslie rocked Brandy's long thick hair with this gorgeous curled updo enhanced with babies breath. Breathtaking if I must say so myself.
Want a fun behind the scenes tidbit? Its always fun to put something personal into these shoots. The ring you see in the above images is mine that has now been passed onto my stylist daughter Lauren. This was a prize that I won when working as a Sales Director in Mary Kay and it is a coveted treasure. I think Brandy wore it well!
For our second look the dress was much more modern, especially with the addition of the beaded jacket draped over her shoulders. The color scheme stayed the same but the style change gave us the opportunity to move from traditional to trendy with hair and makeup. We amped up her eye makeup into a deeper burgundy smoked out wing and took the lips towards nude. With her hair down those beautiful curls provided softness and frame.
