Oh MAN!!!! Yeah, that’s how you start this post off….OOOHHHHH MAN!!!!! About 6 weeks ago I had this, how do I explain, nagging voice in my head to photograph one of my favorite pieces of clothing again. (My sis-in-law rocks btw for making such amazing stuff for me any time I need it :D….or shall I say ask for it 😛 ) So with that nagging little voice chiming in my ear I put my plan into motion. Model, makeup, flowers, accessories, and location….all had to be mapped out to fit just perfectly. After all, if I didn’t tame this nagging creative beast I’d never hear the end of it.
I’ve worked with this beautiful young woman before…so I knew what she could “turn on” in front of the camera….and Marissa, you completed my vision! I asked a very close friend, Jaclyn Tremont of J. Nicole Images, to tag along for a few shots of her own and the three of us ladies had a blast!!!! We couldn’t have asked for more Heavenly weather and light. For. Real. God put it all together for me so perfectly!!!
I used this same skirt in a graduate projected I orchestrated last year, which was fab in its own right, but I wanted to take it in a different direction….sort of bride meets mourning with a vintage twist. Safiyyah Johnston of Facemaker Houston whipped up some wicked makeup and hair. My girl Tristian of GracyLu Originals did NOT fail me on the headpieces either!! (LOVE this woman and her wicked awesome talent) We threw a rhinestone pin and a veil on it to finish it up and give it that bridal look I was going for. Jewels you ask? Why those were Charming Charlie’s of course 😀 I couldn’t have made this what it was without these incredibly talented people!! So THANK YOU!!!
I won’t keep you from these images any longer…..please enjoy my mind now laid out for all the world to see 😀
This is probably my FAVORITE image of the entire day! I can’t explain it…something about it just grabs at me and draws me in! LOVE IT!
***swoon*** Thank you Marissa for being so. friggin. gorgeous!
THANK YOU!!!! 😀
Gotta love that creamy, buttery light on her skin. DEEEELISH!
Yes, Tristian…you truly are amazing. LOVE this headpiece!!!!!
