The Day I was a Princess

On Saturday February 4th, I did a bridal photo shoot. My hair stylist asked me if I wanted to be a part of their salons bridal shoot, and of course I did. About two weeks before, I went to a studio to pick out a dress. They chose one that has never been photographed before. BUT I felt like a million bucks in it.

I went to the location, The Virgil, at 11 am and they got started on my hair. I only had part of my hair done as I was the model for how to on modern Hollywood hair. Then I got my makeup done and had the best catered lunch. Then we hung out for awhile. Then it was time for the hair modeling. My stylist (who was my stylist for 8 years previous to my current one) showed the class how to do the modern hollywood hair. It was sooo pretty. 

Post makeup and middle of my hair process.

After the hour class, we did some touch-ups, finalized my hair and then went upstairs to get in our dresses. There were two models, myself and another girl who was the makeup model. I am not going to lie, I want a vow renewal because of this dress. Ha. But I don't want all the big wedding that goes with it. Just to wear and wow my husband with this dress.

Anyways, we got ready, snapped a few photos of ourselves and then went out to the class.

A class was going on, but everyone was staring at the other model and I along with our two photographers. Everyone was snapping photos and I felt like a princess. 

I had a three hour photoshoot. We shot everywhere from outside, to an old bank vault to the window. I got a few sneak peaks and I couldn't be more excited about getting the rest of the portfolio.

When I get the other photos, I will be sharing them. Even after 10 years, I still felt like a princess. 

One of the photographers took several of my family photos and the other is my best friend, so it was truly a wonderful experience and I felt so comfortable with them. Now to do more of these kinds of shoots.

Have you ever done anything like this?

And I wanted to wish my sister a very Happy Birthday!
