There are so times I think to myself while working, “Seriously, how did I get this lucky? The day I drove to Cut & Shoot, Texas (yes, an actual town, population 1,098) for an over-the-top yet totally natural and organically gorgeous editorial photo shoot with Lauren Peele Photography, The Southern Table and Without Wax Katy, and Paige the Elephant.
Yes, a real, live, gentle giant elephant named Paige, weighing in at 8500 pounds and 9 feet tall. I’m even more thrilled to announce that this styled shoot was picked up for PRINT by Utterly Engaged Magazine Volume 2, which launches TODAY! WIth a nude eye, crimson lip, soft skin a runway-inspired, twisted low-ponytail, our model delivered the look with perfection. I’ve been dying to share these images and now I finally can! Hopefully you enjoy every magical moment as much as I did!

I absolutely adored working with this sweet and beautiful bride, Kelly! I love her effortlessly delicate and ladylike style that we emphasized with soft smoldering eyes and classic bridal updo. We added a pop of petal pink on her cheeks and lips, and voila, the perfect springtime garden wedding beauty!

<pretty, fresh, springtime makeup for all her beautiful bridesmaids!>
<I love this shot above because you can see all of Linda’s lovely bridesmaid braids, twists and curls!>
Megan’s wedding day beauty was the epitome of classic elegance and sophisticated glamour. Beautiful skin with sculpted cheeks, nude eyes with a black winged liner, defined brows and a perfect matte berry pout (in my favorite lipstick of all time, MAC Perpetual Flame). A low, polished updo with a deep side part finished off her timeless look.

I’ve been dying to do this post! Lauren took her bridal portraits earlier this spring before she hopped on a plane with her fiancé, both their families in tow, and headed for their destination nuptials on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Jealous? Yeah, me too. But I’m so grateful I was able to do her hair and makeup for her romantic, Tuscan-inspired portrait session at the Canals of Las Colinas with Brandi Burkett Photography. Aside from how gorgeous she is – how freaking amazing is her couture wedding gown by Deborah Powell of White Gown Workroom? Swoon. Cheers to you, sweet Lauren!
