Engagement Session + Before & After Photo

Believe it or not, this before and after photo was taken with my iPhone5. I love to show the results of the air brushed makeup because no words can describe how amazingly it covers all of the imperfections and flaws, pictures speak for themselves. For this sweet bride-to-be, I did her hair and makeup trial run on the day of their engagement photo shoot. It was perfect timing, and just look how gorgeous her pictures turned out! Best of luck to you Melody in these next months of planning!

It is not every day you are granted a fairy tale wedding to your prince charming. This was my lucky day! I had the incredible opportunity to join in a wedding photo shoot with some amazingly talented vendors.

Here is what Lindsey Wiggins has to say about the shoot,

“Think old meets new with a twist of San Clemente, CA then add the beach and you get… ‘A Modern Take on a Vintage Day At The Beach’. The inspiration for this style shoot was found at the picturesque beachfront venue ‘Casa Del Mar’, located in San Clemente California just steps from the Pacific Ocean. We really wanted to capture the feel of San Clemente, and of the private estate. Casa Del Mar is romantic and timeless, yet this estate has many fun and whimsical characteristics. With the beautiful vintage furniture, and tableware, fresh romantic flowers, blush tones, lace, and fresh pops of color, we created a fresh and romantic day in the garden with a beachfront view, which screams San Clemente, CA.

This beautiful vintage shoot was organized and styled by Bliss Productions, captured by Caleb John Hill and made possible by Storied Rentals who lent the furniture, Dish Wish LA who provided the tableware, Designed Elegance who did the hair and makeup (Emily was also our GORGEOUS model, along with her HANDSOME husband – They couldn’t have been any cuter together), Plumeria Cakes who supplied the cakes, and Dizzy Daisy who provided all the beautiful flower arrangements.”
