Yesterday I went on site to take my bridal portraits and it was so much fun! All week I was scrambling to get all the last minute items in tow and didn’t know if it was all going to work out. I had to find time in a very hectic schedule to get my nails done, buy shoes, undergarments, and figure out what in the world to do with my hair! It all worked out, though as I had my hair dresser (Brooke Parker–no relation!) add a clip in to my tiny ponytail and make a side bun. She actually came along on site with me, too so I could have her do touch ups throughout the shoot. She’s amazing! Check her out if you’re looking for an awesome, hip stylish. Her salon is in Apex/Cary off Morrisville-Carpenter Road.
In addition to freaking out about what to do with my hair I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my makeup either! I finally went with a bronzy-peach motif and I think it suited my portraits well. We took them in the Millenium Center in Winston-Salem and then went for outside shots in the Arts District (even in front of some graffiti walls!) and then over to Reynolda Gardens. My photographer, Jacqui Causey, was terrific in finding the “out-of-the-box” shots that I wanted. We went so far to take some in the basement of the old courthouse in Winston. It was awesome! I had so much fun! We took traditional shots for mom and grandma and the rest were modern and real for me. I’ll be sure to post some next month after the wedding for all to see. Can’t do it beforehand because Jeremy might read the blog and get us some bad luck for seeing the bride in her gown before the “big day”! 🙂
Hope you all are having a great week and planning is going well! Can’t wait to hear your stories, too!
