Carmen the Stunning Bride!

I work with Paige Newton of Paige Newton Photography often.  We shoot fashion and editorials together but she also selects a few, lucky brides per year to shoot their eclectic weddings.  She is not your average “wedding photographer” and her work stands out with its unique and fresh look at an event.


This shoot is no exception.  I am so excited to share these images of Carmen’s wedding at Mercury Hall.  Carmen is a performer by trade and she is not afraid of makeup.  We went with a dramatic yet ethereal look with full lashes and a touch of violet on her lids.  Her hair was styled by the oh-so-talented Shannon Briggs of Janet St Paul Hair Studio.


The results are stunning!  See the full wedding here on Paige’s Blog


Model Portfolio Photoshoot

I had the honor to work with the AMAZING, award winning photographer Maria Bernal https://www.facebook.com/MBernalArtist?fref=ts for this shoot.

Model, Heather Housman Love https://www.facebook.com/heather.hausman.love?fref=ts needed some “body shots” for her portfolio. Victoria Secret has their eye on her.

I am so excited to share them with you!  Enjoy!
