This shoot was AMAZING to work on! I loved the vintage look of this shoot, with all of the reds, greys, blacks, and the feel of an old-time Carnival. There were moments of beauty, flawless creativity, frustration (because there weren’t any outlets for my hair hot tools) and just out of the ordinary fun. And I loved every minute of it.
Kristin was our classic bride. With a young fresh glow to her face, all I needed to do to make it feel vintage was a vibrant red lip, and her hair in a messy side bun.
I had been styling hair for a short while, but I hadn’t come across dread locks. Emerald was one of the three performers from a flaming, aerial, cabaret group called the Hot Totties. My vision for her was a foe hawk up do, which I felt fit her personality in this photo shoot perfectly, and captured the essence of the character.
At one point I was lucky enough to fill in for a bridal model. My hair had been up all day, so I added a little bit of teasing, brushing, clips, a touch up of makeup by Ashley, and TADA!!
Jamie was the second member of the Hot Totties, and had beautiful long blonde hair. I took my cues from the her vintage performer style makeup and came up with this hair.
Stephanie was the last of the Hot Totties, and had the most festive style makeup, so I felt her hair needed to have that same flair. Corn rolled in the front with a teased shoulder length down do.
In the end I was proud of the whole group of people who helped put together this shoot. It required a ton of preparation, that came together perfectly and it will be a fun moment marked down in my book.
