another day, another shoot! what i’ve quickly come to realize is that the images that are produced during a photoshoot might be glamorous and in fact a wonderful fantasy but in actuality is tiring, far from glamorous, and grueling work. 12 hour days, 7am call times, and hours of prep to get a single shot…thank god i love what i’m doing.
last month i was on set for a bridal editorial for Viet Beauty magazine that featured all of our bridal gowns from the past seasons.
boy was that a production! 4 brides, 2 grooms, 1 manicurist, 2 makeup artists, 1 hair stylist, 1 designer, 1 assistant(me), the creative director, 2 photographers, and the editor in chief of the mag all crammed together in a old manor in Pasadena. the location was beautiful, in fact you might’ve seen it before on tv…for all you Glee fans out there, we
were shooting at “Dalton Academy” otherwise known as the Red Cross ‘Cravens Estate’! the old mansion was intact and immaculate. every detail in that castle was newly restored but had a delicate air to it, perfect for the theme we were going for.
it was a long day filled with over 20+ looks divided by four different beautiful girls. two grooms shared the brides which made it very sisterwives/polygamy-ish. i can’t wait to see the final product from this shoot! the editorial and magazine publishes march 15!
