Touch of modern Gatsby – collab shoot

A collaboration shoot is an opportunity for artists/creative vendors to come together and play and practice.  This one was a blast!  I snuck in a few behind the scenes peeks.  Thanks for the donuts, Coral.  WOW Happy Donuts in Puyallup = amazing!

>>>Dresses & head pieces:  New Beginnings Bridal Studio

New Beginnings is located in South Hill, Puyallup.   For all wedding dress and accessory needs!  They carry high end dresses and amazing value prices!!!  The store is full of gorgeous dresses to try on in a comfortable, supportive environment.  Tina, Gabby and Daron are amazing, patient, and extremely knowledgeable.  Three of my brides have purchased wedding dresses from NBBS, and they RAVE about the VALUE and personal, sincere attention and care they received!

>>>Decor/props:  Props for Hire

What can I say?  Coral is probably the most creative lady I know.  Hand this pretty lady any box full of random items and she will whip up five different beautiful arrangements of decor.  No kidding.  Pinterest sminterest.  Tell Coral your personality, taste and style….she will put together wedding decor that makes your guests walk in and say, “WOW that is so YOU”!    Or, let your own creative juices flow and rent her fabulous props!

>>>Hair & makeup:  Taylor Wilson

I have watched Taylor grow up for the past 12 years.  For as long as I can remember, she has been doodling fashion sketches and doing hair and makeup on any willing participant.  By the time she was in Jr. High, girls were begging her to do their hair and makeup.  In high school she took Art so she could hone her artistic eye, and Drama so she could do makeup.  By the time she was as senior she had people asking to pay her for hair cuts and colors…prior to any schooling…based on her natural artistic gifts.   She is now 23, completed beauty school, and working full time at a fabulous salon in Olympia.  She does bridal hair & makeup on site as well!
Watching Taylor work is like watching a sculptor.  There is no exact science – she is able to work with each hair type, facial structure, and personality to bring out the beauty in each lady.
