This shoot was literally months in the making. Heath and I have been talking with vendors and lining out venues to make sure this was the best bridal shoot we have ever done…and this is just part 1. Our model, Lily, is a stunning woman who should be a professional model…I’m just sayin’. Not only did she give me some great shots, but she has an amazing attitude. We had her traipsing all through the 5 acres at the Philbrook Museum in 4 inch heels and she didn’t bat an eyelash. I just loved working with her.
Since it was an early morning shoot, makeup and hair had to be done extra early. Mikala Ewald with Makeup by Mikala and Kate Burke, Senior Stylist at Ihloff Salon, worked seamlessly at an ungodly hour to make Lily look her absolute best. They only had an hour to have her on the grounds ready to shoot, when each service could take at least that. In this industry, it’s hard to find professionals that can do amazing work under a time crunch…Mikala and Kate did just that. I highly recommend both of them!
Liz Carriger with LizzyCjewelry hand made the necklace, earrings and bracelet. I just loved them in addition to the dress, hair and makeup. Heath setup the flowers with Anne Marie from The French Bouquet here in Tulsa. Stunning. There are no other words. Thanks to everyone who had a part in this shoot!
