As a wedding present to Lucas and I, a guest at our wedding offered to do a mini-engagement shoot. We were of course elated, as there was no other way for us to have had one since up until our wedding week we had been 5,000 miles apart. By now, most of you have already seen the photos. If you have not, you can see them here and here.
A lot goes into making a photo shoot perfect. After you have thoughtfully planed the location, date, and time, then you must style it. We wanted our travel themed e-session to reflect Lucas and I’s exact personality, thus I chose to wear a gown while he chose to wear a shirt and jeans. That is just so us!
My go-to hair and makeup guru in Buenos Aires used to be Kelo. Unfortunately, while I would love nothing more than to sing his praises, since he really is a genius with his hands, he deeply disappointed me like so many of my wedding vendors when it came to my big day. I will not go into the drama that he caused, but I will say that I no longer recommend him. Having said that, I have still decided to take you behind the scenes before our shoot in his studio. I told Kelo I wanted a Brigitte Bardot inspired look and that is exactly what he gave me.
I am delighted to announce that UPrinting has offered one of my readers the opportunity to win 100 postcards!!!
I have no doubt that my travel obsessed readers would love the chance to print their favorite image on postcards to send to their friends and family during their adventures around the world. If I had to pick my favorite photo from the shoot to put on a postcard, while it it would be a difficult decision, I think I would choose the following:
- Leave me a comment describing the image you would choose for your postcards.
- For an extra entry leave me a comment telling me that you have followed me on Twitter.
- For another extra entry leave me a comment telling me that you have friended me on Facebook.
I will announce the winner on Friday, June 24th, 2011.
