When we first got the idea of doing a mock bridal shoot, one of our first steps was to contact Chelsea, a college friend who does amazing work with Glam Belle Makeup. Of course we couldn't have models pose as brides without having them all dolled up, right?! Plus, that's just part of the fun for these ladies! And even though Chelsea is in Ohio, she was so quick to join in on the fun – AND she brought more help with her!! We cannot believe all the amazing talent we had and from awesome people who volunteered to travel and spend an entire day with us! They completely surpassed any of our expectations, and we could NOT thank them enough!!
Our glam squad consisted of:
Katina Harris – stylist extraordinaire – she came loaded with accessories galore and always had the best suggestions for each model's look!
Cheyenne Wright – expert hair stylist – This girl knows her stuff! She had the best insight for hairstyles and ended up making exactly the right choices! So helpful!
Candice Smith – hairstylist AND model – she pulled double-duty during the shoot, but we forced her to spend most of the day in front of the camera because we loved her look!
Chelsea Travis – What can we say? We couldn't do this without her! Everyone at the shoot had flawless makeup... and those LASHES! We were so jealous behind the camera! ;) We must get you back to help us with our head shots soon! Thank you so much for your willingness to help and for bringing such a great team with you!
The above images were taken while getting ready in Shannon's home in Greenfield. Then, we moved to the fabulous Indiana State Museum in Indy. They were gracious enough to let us use one of their spacious conference rooms for our models. How convenient since their location was one of our favorite spots to shoot around Indy!
