Remember when this happened and we won the Exquisite Weddings Cover Contest a few years ago? Well, since that day, we have made it a personal and business goal to shoot the ever popular wedding gown feature in an issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine. We feel so incredibly honored to have been asked this year to shoot this feature that spanned 12 pages of the current issue that is on newsstands now, in addition to our second cover for the magazine! We were fortunate enough to be working alongside an amazing team that pulled out all the stops to create some serious wedding magic for the newest issue of San Diego's top wedding magazine. Thanks so much to Amanda Thorne at Thorne Artistry. This shoot was her brainchild and she pulled together some incredible looks for us to shoot. She is such a talented wedding pro and we are so grateful for everything she did to bring amazingness to this day. The beautiful florals you see below, including the insanely awesome floral chair were designed by Breesa Lee at Blooms by Breesa Lee. The incredibly talented Melissa Rae of Melissa Rae & Co. Luxury Beauty Studio provided makeup and Unveiled Bridal Beauty worked their magic on our model's hair that day.
The images below include some of our favorite shots that were not featured in the magazine so we thought we would show them off here as there was a ton of variety throughout the course of this day. We feel so fortunate to be asked to be a part of these types of shoots. For us, it's truly a dream come true: we show up, hang out at beautiful places (the venue for this shoot was The La Jolla Women's Club - thanks Auriel for providing us with such an incredible shoot space!), work with some of the most creative people in the industry and then party with them all to celebrate a successful day's work. Don't pinch us because if this is a dream, we don't want to wake up! Thanks team for bringing this shoot to life! We love you all!
