FIND IT FAST
Let’s not only dream big this year, let’s make it come to life! Let’s put every ounce of our energy into making a difference. Let’s not live life for ourselves, let’s strive to lift up others, let their light shine, and to watch them succeed. This has been our 2016 motto, and we are putting it all into motion!
Believe it or not, Rachel and I are both extremely shy. We’re the wall flowers at social gathering, and are always excited we have each other to keep company, so it looks like we’re not alone. When we left WPPI (the worlds largest wedding photography convention) in Las Vegas last year, we promised ourselves if we ever went back, we would plan a desert shoot of our own. We held up to our promise, but not without the help of an AMAZING team! Every single person played such an important roll in breathing life into this dream, we couldn’t have done it without them. Let me tell you, planning a destination shoot where you don’t know anyone, and having to find models, hair, makeup, and clothing, was a challenge. Thank goodness for the Rising Tide Society groups all over the country, where we all believe in Community Over Competition. We reached out to the local Las Vegas group for advice, and they were so welcoming and helpful! We ended up gaining so much knowledge and experience, LOVED every second of it, and now we’re ready to do it again!
Glammed Up Vegas created four gorgeous unique hairstyles. Makeup by Cassidy put the phenomenal touches on our models, to give them that warm desert glow. The wardrobe and jewelry these girls wore were to-die-for, from Girl-Lee Boutique in Carmel. Then there’s Paul from Voltage Visuals we should just call our lifesaver, our right-hand man, chauffeur, and handler of all the logistics. You are a rock star! We cannot thank you guys enough for everything you did for us to help a dream come true and cannot wait to work with you again! Next year Las Vegas, watch out, we’re coming back and doing this again, even BIGGER!
Here is a sneak peek into our afternoon Las Vegas desert fashion shoot…
A little peek of how this call came to life…
Thank you to our dear from Brenden Murphy of So Cute Photo of these behind the scenes images!
Rock star! What did I tell you!
That’s a wrap and we’re ready to take this show on the road! After a few months of pouring our hearts into other creatives and watching them bloom, we’re excited to announce we’re now offering mentoring. In-person, Skype, or we come to you! If you’re interested in learning more about this, please email me at [email protected] More details to come!
Many thanks to this amazing creative team who helped bring this shoot to life…
