Bloggers meet Shannon + Matt…
It is an amazingly delicious experience when a bride and groom realize the importance of hair/makeup AND styling! While I would LOVE to visit all of my client’s closets, layout wardrobe, shop with them (ahh!!)…I unfortunately do not have the luxury of time (that’s if I want to me a good mommy…which is my #1 priority outside of God and my hubby!). I am proud to have Lindsey Regan Thorne : b e p r e t t y as part of the KVP family. She is the epitome of style, fashion and well…a lot of sugar!! Our engagement shoots start with you (the bride and groom) filling out a Getting to Know You form. We want to know your interests, hobbies and passions. What do you do most weekends? What is your favorite color, restaurant, stores, city? From there she and I collaborate on locations, wardrobe and props. Lindsey will schedule a time to inventory your closet, and if you don’t have she will pull it from different stores. Shoes, accessories, clothing for both of you…the entire look! In addition to styling (and giving Rachel Zoe a run…hehe), she is an up and coming on-location hair and makeup artist. With a kit stacked full of yummy Mac makeup, lashes and hair pieces, she simply enhances your look…from head to toe (literally)!
Then…that is where I step in! It is so refreshing and exciting to photograph a completely thought out production. It’s all about YOU and every little DETAIL – and I don’t want to leave one corner unturned! So – for what it is worth…here is my two cents…”what girl doesn’t like to feel beautiful? to be doted on? to feel stylish? to spend a couple of hours with your soon-to-be husband capturing fun memories reflective of the two of you? Engagement sessions are designed to not only capture you in your element, but it is a time for us to get to know one another – so very, very important!”
I hope you enjoy this little taste of our session last week. Shannon and Matt are adorably in love, and we are so proud to be part of their upcoming big day on August 7th at Ballantyne Resort!
Another special thank you to The Dairy Barn for allowing us to shoot at their location.
And there you have it folks! Here is the fab LRT in action – accompanied by the oh-so-talented, Tiffany Ratliff of Weddings and the City (Shannon and Matt’s wedding planner)! Someone’s gotta dress the pup! Oh – and sidenote, loving the skinny belt with puffy vest…stylish yet functioning!
