All I can say about this bridal session is - stunning, stunning, S T U N N I N G!!!! I literally felt like we were shooting something for a bridal magazine spread! Meet my gorgeous bombshell bride, Brittney. Not only is she so graceful in front of the camera, she is absolutely breath taking to photograph. I couldn't wait for Brittney and Sam to finally tied the knot so I can share these amazing bridal pictures!
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for Brittney's bridal session at her uptown wedding venue, Harvey B. Gantt. This arts and cultural museum is an amazing location for modern pictures with its urban architecture, amazing natural lighting with ceiling high windows and serene rooftop skyline view. Prior to the session, we met at my studio, for hair and makeup. Master stylist, Lizzy Rivera created a whimsical, vintage inspired updo - it looked absolutely gorgeous with Brittney's highlights! A wired, rhinestone head band was the finishing touch for the romantic bridal hairstyle. Her airbrush makeup was a sophisticated glam style with soft smokey copper tones to enhance Brittney's gorgeous blue eyes. We added a hint of turquoise to the lower lash line to give an extraordinary "pop" of sparkle. The airbrush foundation was stellar and looked fresh and stayed on throughout the entire session! If you are looking for long lasting makeup that looks natural up close and in pictures, I highly recommend airbrush makeup!
Since it was such a beautiful day, we decided to take a stroll down the block on South Tryon Street to maximize the beautiful array of sceneries. We had to stop and take a few shots in front of St. Peter's Catholic Church. The beautiful wooden doors added a rustic, vintage feel to Brittney's captures.
Our final stop was a tranquil petite park called "The Green" which was just around the corner from the church. We tucked ourselves in a quiet cornered area and captured some serene shots. There was a soft breeze which was perfect to add some movement in Brittney's hair. The surrounding of creative sculptures and landscaping also made it feel like we were in a secret garden.
Brittney's unique engagement ring has a part of Sam's family heirloom blended in it. Her ravishing detalied wedding gown is from Beddazzled.
Thank you for taking a moment to view this beautiful collection.
Special thanks to Heidi Crowder & Events for helping us coordinate the venue, Amanda Cowles and Thea for assisting with the bridal gown, and Lizzy Rivera for hair.
