You know those rare nights when you spontaneously gather your gal pals and head out for a night on the town and although you have zero expectations, it turns out to be what you will always refer to as, “one of the best night EVER!” Well that’s how I feel about this photo shoot.
A few months ago I was feeling the need to get creative with my makeup and styling. I contacted a few Sunshine Coast wedding industry pals and in a matter of a few days, we threw together a shoot that has easily become one of my most favourite yet.
The way this came together so seamlessly and was so relaxed and such fun will always make it special to me. I love the simplicity of this shoot with minimal styling, allowing the gorgeous models, fashion and location to steal the show. I always love working at Shelly Beach in Caloundra, which is never overrun with people and always has perfect afternoon light.
These photos were shot by the wonderfully talented Terri Hanlon Photography.
Brooke is stunning with a natural flushed look. I gave her “just-had-sex” cheeks and “my-colour-but-better” lips with one of my fave stains by Benefit.
I love this true white striking wedding dress by Judy Copley Couture. All the girls wear dresses by Judy.
I asked Magnolia Grove to create a bouquet with fluffy textures and colours that would complement, and not compete with, the natural beach elements by using sandy tones.
I also asked for very robust floral s to adorn the feet. The flower anklets they created in similar, but varying tones of peach, white, and yellow were perfection. If only they lasted forever!
Lauren is already a bronzed beauty, so I upped the ante and gave her some gorgeous gold and bronze-toned makeup with nude lips. This made her blue eyes pop.
I gave Kirra a soft and pretty bridal makeup design with peach and champagne tones.
My makeup designs are only as good as the hair styling surrounding them. I always love working with Nicole from Sass & Niki’s Wedding Hair, because she not only does a spectacular job, she is such a great person to have around. Adore her!
