When J asked if I would take pictures for their surprise wedding in March, I was thrilled that I would be able to work with her again and capture such an important day in their lives.
J & C planned the entire wedding as a surprise…..
J and her stepdaughter had their hair and make up done at Ponytails & Horseshoes just off Whyte Ave. It was my first time being in the salon, but I was super impressed with the natural light (the make up artist did J’s make up right by the window…so, so, so important, I think…natural light), the staff are all so friendly and the salon is gorgeous. They also use Kevin Murphy!!! They even let J get changed into her wedding dress there. If you haven’t been there, I would highly reccomend checking it out!
J is so gorgeous in every sense. She has the sweetest most caring personality, is so down to earth and relaxed. <3
Her fabulous shoes.
And stunning dress.
Beautiful bouquet…so simple.
J’s son walked her to meet C. <3 Not going to lie, I was tearing up behind my camera.
I could feel C and J’s love when they were looking at each other. I feel so grateful that I was there to capture their day. <3
I often receive emails asking about Boudoir Marathons …many questions actually. So, I thought I would do a few blog posts on just what is entailed in a Boudoir Marathon.
The word Marathon can be intimidating. I am sure it could imply different ideas of just what goes on during a marathon photoshoot. Quite simply put, all a Boudoir Marathon means, is a series of consecutive appointments (photo shoots) within a day. By hosting Boudoir sessions in a marathon style, it enables me to package everything together (professional hair, professional makeup, location) at a better price than doing a private session.
Even though there are so many appointments within the day, Boudoir marathon sessions are still very respectful, private and relaxed. I do employ an all female staff and together we make sure marathons are high energy, positive and private.
Upon arriving to a Boudoir marathon you will be greeted, offered a refreshment and fruit, shown around a bit, introduced to our talented hair stylist and make up artist.
Once your hair and make up is complete and you are looking and feeling amazing, I then take you to a private room where just you and I look through your outfits, pick matching jewelry (I stock a wide variety) and then we will get started on your photo shoot!
It is a fabulous experience, and if you are thinking of attending one and you are feeling at all hesitant, I would highly encourage you to email me with your questions, concerns… I have been taking Boudoir Pictures now for 2 years and I will do my best to answer any questions at all that you may have!
I will leave you with a few photos of some of the details from our last marathon ….
