Well I’m just too anxious to wait any longer – I have to share this session with you!
This Glam session has been weeks in the making. I contacted Brookelynn back in August and we started talking over ideas. I’ve been shooting Glam sessions for a year or so now, but I wanted to try something a little different – Bridal Glam. I have been working closely with vendors in the city, and I was blown away with how cooperative everyone has been! Let me tell you a bit about each vendor.
Ashley with Delica Bridal hooked us up with a beautiful Lazaro gown. If you are a bride-to-be, and haven’t been to her store yet – you need to go! Her one-of-a-kind gowns are sure to impress, and she has such a helpful willing spirit. She will definitely get you into the right gown for your special day :)
Also on board were the ladies over at Cerise Floral Studio. Again – I was so impressed with how willing Sue and Erin were to contribute to the shoot! They custom-made a bouquet and hair piece for Brookelynn. Without their flowers we couldn’t have pulled off the look near as well! Besides their one-of-a-kind arrangements and vases, they display work from local artists, musicians and craftsmen. Their studio is pretty unique, so you should definitely pay them a visit!
To help pull off Brookelynn’s overall look – my sister Alana with Alana Turcott Makeup Artistry drove up to Edmonton for the day and did the makeup. We live in different cities and have always wanted to work on a project together. So when I told her about this shoot, she was 100% on board – and I’m so glad she was – just LOOK at the photos and you’ll see why! Thanks sis for your pure talent and skill – and thanks for making a special trip to help out – I love ya!
Another shout-out goes to Christa at Lorenzo Lawrence Salon! Thank you for coming in on a Sunday afternoon to help us out! You gave us the perfect look we were aiming for so THANK YOU! To the city of Edmonton, please go make your next appointment at this amazing salon. It’s trendy, modern and just off Whyte. You’ll be glad you did!
Let me not forget to mention my assistant – my better half – Brandi! She is always tagging along and rolling with the punches (not literal ones haha). I’m pretty fortunate to always have someone there by my side, helping me pull off the ideas in my head (not always good ones)! Our assistants deserve so much credit don’t they?? Without them our shoots would be far more disorganized and take twice as much time. I love you hun!
Last but not least – Brookelynn! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I couldn’t imagine having anyone else to model this session. You are talented, beautiful and so kind and humble. You brought the Glam and I am so happy with the results. Always smiling, always willing – you’ve got what it takes and wish you nothing but success! And I cannot wait to work with you again in the future! Thanks Brookelynn :)
And now it’s time. Feast your eyes on this Bridal Glam Session. The first of it’s kind, but many more to come. If you are/were a bride and have been wanting to get back into your gown again – let’s make it happen! Email me and we’ll set something up!
Thanks again to all the vendors and everyone else involved! Enjoy!
