We are coming for your braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiinnnnssss…….
Thanks to the amazing Monty and Sangeeta from Kumari Photography, their intern Vic, and the awesome Sherry Vanstone for helping to put together a fabulous shoot. Who thought being a zombie bride could be so fun, scary, and yet so glam? Thanks also to our amazing friend W for hooking us up with the beautiful shoot location.
Looking for your braaaains,
Our engagement shoot was awesome!! It was a long day. Never realized looking good could take so much effort. We are pooped.
I will post more deets soon, but just wanted to give love to Monty and Sangeeta–you make an incredible photography team and shooting with you is a privilege. I seriously want to pack you up in a box and carry you around with me so I can show and tell the world how awesome you two are.
To Pam and Joy, thanks for making me (and J) look gorgeous. I was anxious before the shoot and you both helped me relax and enjoy the experience.
To Hamed from Awtash, thanks for offering us your fantastic space. The luxe decor made for some sultry shots. Thanks also for letting us move your furniture around, stand on your barstools, and sprawl on your gorgeous mosaic tables.
To Ashley and Jade from Shopgirls, your openness and patience was fabulous. thanks especially to Jade for staying late and having no issue with our mannequin dance party and blasting Jay Z and Alicia upon request.
So much fun.
And now, it’s time to dive into bed.
Our engagement shoot is tomorrow!!
I’ve got my outfits ready, my hair accessories purchased, my jewelry organized, and my shoes packed.
Hairstylist is booked! Pam from Beauty Bliss is giving me a bridal trial/engagement shoot look. Wish me luck!
Joy David (aka makeup junkie) is doing my face. She was a third-degree referral (i.e., she was referred by Farah from Faces by Farah who was referred by Anjali from Rock That Look); I liked her portfolio online, so I hope it works out!
Tonight, I will pray to the Smize gods and hope that in the morning, Tyra, Jay Manuel, and Miss J will have bestowed upon me the elusive and awe-inspiring ability to SMIZE.
