Photoshoot: Styled Shoot with Stacy!

We recently had the pleasure of joining Stacy from Stacy Poterson Photography at Soho63 for a beautiful styled photoshoot with models Josh and Elena!
Stylists Charly and Amanda did beautiful work utilizing Elena’s long hair for an up-do with braids and (more braids) and showcasing her beautiful skin tone with a great pink lip! Which complimented the beautiful floral arrangement from Hoot& Holler Soho63 had so many great backdrops and areas for photos so we decided to use them all! And we love the pictures that Stacy took, so much, we couldn’t pick just one.

Phoenix Bride & Groom: Winter/Spring 2015 – Part 2

Earlier this year, Babydoll Weddings was invited to be a part of a photoshoot for Phoenix Bride & Groom with the amazing Jasmine Star!! We had such a blast and cannot wait to share this second set of gorgeous images from that day!


continued from part one:
On the dark hair girl (model, Diana Elizabeth Steffen) since the theme for her setting was very colorful and I decided that a more sophisticated polished hair would be more suitable to balance things.

I loved how we were able to showcase some out of the box ideas, like a black wedding dress and still show elegant it could be.
After shooting the food, and table arrangements, we all got to enjoy and sample the treats. It was perfect to have a small break in between the shoots and get to know everyone a bit. Both model couples were newlyweds so the magic of the couples photos were great – a lot of joking around was had and they were super excited to have a second set of wedding photos!
 

Many thanks to all of the amazing vendors who made this shoot happen!

Phoenix Bride & Groom: Winter/Spring 2015 – Part 1

Earlier this year, Babydoll Weddings was invited to be a part of a photoshoot for Phoenix Bride & Groom with the amazing Jasmine Star!! We had such a blast and cannot wait to share the gorgeous images from that day!



Sabrina has this to say about the shoot:
It was such a great honor to be asked to be a part of shoot like this. I actually got the call on one of my days off and I was getting a pedicure. I had to pinch myself when they said Jasmine Star was the photographer – she is such a well known wedding photographer and I was so excited to be involved! 


Everyone involved worked so well together and was very laid back and comfortable. They were very open to my ideas on the hair and makeup so I was able to get creative. 


On the blonde model (Danielle Trushenski) I used extensions to create the longer braid. I was able to go a bit more edgy on the look because of the theme. I was so excited to see the ceremony site for this theme, Amanda at Butterfly Petals is a floral genius. When they first told me that the theme was taxidermy I cringed, but then when you see the details and how beautiful the antlers look with floral and stone added to it – its just amazing. 

Many thanks to all of the amazing vendors who made this shoot happen!
