I love meeting other vendors in the Calgary Wedding Market! Concept shoots and stylized shoots provide the opportunity for vendors to come together to showcase new ideas, and to collaborate together keeping our ideas fresh for you!
I had an idea to do a wedding themed shoot with a fairytale undertone. My thought was to have contrasting brides in classic and couture gowns with contrasting light etherial and dark smoky makeup. I couldn’t believe my luck when Monica of Wishahmon agreed to donate some of her glorious gowns to the day. Wishahmon has a unique blend of consignment gowns both simple and classic, and trunk show gems that bold discerning brides to be would surely love! She brought this funky black lace gown with her to the bridal show, so you may remember it! We contrasted beautiful Amanda’s blonde bombshell looks, with Cheyenne’s smouldering bright eyes and dark hair to add further contrast to the selected gowns.
Then Cassidy Andrews (Ca Va Bien) added her magic. She used two hair techniques sure to be popular among this years brides. A classic Bun with added flair, and a romantic loose braid trailing down the nape of the neck. She added sparkle to both ladies faces, and their eyes became the staggering feature of each beauty! While the girls sat in Cassidy’s chair, we laughed and giggled about things only girls would understand, and I could tell that Cassidy instantly put both models at ease that day.
And then there was Cole. Oh Cole!!! Another local photographer, Cole and his lovely over 6 foot frame graced me with his time and came out to model as our groom. And. He. Rocked. It! Lovely bubbly Marjie over at Derks kindly outfitted Cole in this gorgeous tuxedo shown 2 ways, and I couldn’t pick my jaw up off the floor! I mean Come ON!!!! Nothing beats a man in a beautiful suit or tux.
Lastly, we plugged in some elegant headbands, earings, hairpieces, and necklaces to work with each of the girls 2 gowns, and stars were born!!! Polly at Mi2 hand picked these intricate additions from her colossal stock, and thank god she did, because there was No way I was choosing!! Her selections were perfect additions to complete the look for each of these ladies.
And now, no further adieu needed……the images!!
