Where do I even begin?!?! I think these pictures really speak for themselves, and I’m sure you can see why I’m so speechless, but I’ll give you a background story anyway. 🙂
On Tuesday, Christina of Bella Giornata Events contacted me in kind of an emergency situation. She needed a makeup artist and one more model for her shoot on that Thursday. There were going to be 6 photographers shooting, my friend and office-mate Jamie Butcher of Blushing Blooms Event Florist, and other amazing vendors at the coolest location- the Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower. It is a beautiful clock tower in Baltimore, built in 1911, and pictured below. Kind of like Big Ben on a smaller scale!
Christina told me that I would be both modeling and doing makeup on the other model in the shoot, Kellyn. That’s a huge win-win! We both were going to be wearing dresses from Ava Laurenne Bride, which as you may have noticed by now, I love doing. It’s so fun!
I got in touch with Kellyn and we met early Thursday morning for makeup then got in my car for our long drive to Baltimore. Walking toward the tower was SO exciting knowing we were going to the very top. Although, what I did not know was that I was going to stand up in one of the faces of the clock- even better! I could tell as soon as we climbed up into the four walls of the clock that this was a brilliant spot for a styled shoot and would make for incredible pictures.
It was such a fun experience having 6 photographers shooting all at once. One of them I’ve known for a long time- Michelle Harris- while the rest were knew faces who were a pleasure to meet and connect with. To be honest, I feel like I now know how celebrities feel with all those cameras on them! It was then a proud moment watching my new friend Kellyn killing it up there once it was her turn, and I was popping my head around the corner and taking behind the scenes sneaky pics on my phone (I couldn’t resist).
I have to give a huge virtual round of applause the the impressive vendors- I mean JUST LOOK at those photos! I love seeing how creativity from different business owners come together to make something amazing. This was definitely unforgettable! I hope you love it as much as we do! (These are the photos I have received from a few of the photographers. I hope to add more to this post as they come in!)
