Talk about your ‘girl power’ collaborative effort ( o.k there were a few guys too ). This wedding theme styled shoot based on the NEW Oz movie ‘Oz the great and powerful’ turned out to be one luscious gift. The Brains behind the theme were truly Stephanie from Honey Paperie and Rebecca from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca. Add in my cool and gifted friend Jenifer Haupt with I make beautiful and my #1 hair lady of all times Tina Romo, AND a TON of other very cool ladies such as Martha Martha Martha from Blooms by Martha, Aimee Wendell from The Find, the hotties at Mimi and Co and even our own on the set nail lady Alena, and we were off and running. We were so thankful to have such hot fashion models also, we are nothing without them. I for one can not wait to see the movie, but until then please enjoy our little tribute to the Great and Powerful Oz !
And, as the ultimate gift, this will be featured on ROCK AND ROLL BRIDE today. I LOVE Kat from Rock and Roll bride, she gets me : )
Our beloved Libby got an ab workout getting this shot : )
Amanda, to know her is to love her, really a gem throughout the whole venture.
So you all may know that ‘everyone loves Raymond’ right ? Well add one MORE person EVERYONE loves, it is PHOEBE. Really, the mere mention of her name and a person will say ‘ I LOVE PHOBE ‘ and often repeat that a few times.
One HUGE shout out to Martha from BLOOMS. That lady BRINGS IT !
I have wanted to do a bridal shoot with Libby for so long, my dream came true : )
One of my all time favorite photos, great job team !
How perfect was our male model, we were so lucky to have Victor in the mix. Such a cool guy in every way.
The things Stephanie from Honey Paperie can make, she is so uniquely talented.
I am so deeply in love with this image. I would like to fool myself and think it is just all
my photo skills, but in truth, it could be Amanda’s good looks : ) Dig that cool couch from our treasured Aimee Wendal at the Find, thanks so much sister, you always have the right stuff at the right time.
Now THAT is a dessert bar people. Rebecca, how many more times can I tell you that I love you and you are gifted ?

Just the most awesome team EVERRRRRRRRR ! I could go on and on and on about my love for each one of these people we had working on this hot fashion model shoot, but I am going to try and contain myself.
I adore Sherri Morris from Brushworx Makeup Artistry with the make-up, and I am deeply in love with Tina Romo hairstylist to the stars. I am always so in awe of Sarah Kreutz, she is the best in the area for styling. She has such exquisite taste ! And much love for Debbie Hurst and Miles Harley with Sacramento Magazine and Our Wedding Magazine for giving me the gig and their art direction. And our ladies from the venue, Marjorie and Carrell were as cool as two humans could possibly be ! So very warm and kind and easy to work with. Their venue, the Coloma Country Inn is one of my all time favorites ! We had some of the best wedding people give us cool stuff to make our shoot more beautiful. Rebecca from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca and Katie from Ambience Floral both brought their treasures. I had TONS of help that day with my treasured Dacy McWhorter helping me with set styling, Carrie Nicole and Phoebe Verkouw being my right hand helpers all day. These shoots are not easy ! It takes a lot of folks working all day to pull this off, to be able to be the photographer is really such an honor and a blessing. I am one lucky ducky ! And YES, this is yet another ‘you are bloggin’ WAY too many images’ post, sorry, I am going to milk this for all its worth.

FUN FACT : My alternate title for this blog post was : ‘ We don’t mean to brag we don’t mean to boast, but we like hot butter on our breakfast toast ‘ but I feared few would get that reference : )
O.K change that to 2 backlights and a black background ( sadly I actually do think of blog titles like this and can not wait to get home to post them…..)
My super cool friends and I did a fun fashion shoot. I LOVE these gals, we LOVE doing fun shoots together to keep our creativity flowing.
Dacy Kolsky McWhorter styled our ‘ modern day Cleopatra ‘ theme shoot. Man alive is Dacy a talented lady. Sherri Morris, one of Sacramento’s Best make-up artists rocked the make-up and Tina Romo, my all time favorite hair person, did our super cute models hair. We were sooooooooooooo thankful to get such hot fashion model from our beloved Cast Images , as they well know, I am their biggest fan !
So here is what we came up with : A bit of cheesy for your viewing pleasure.
BUT WAIT…..DON’T ORDER YET, because I did one other 2 backlights and black background session that I am adding on when you call in NOW ( you just pay the shipping and handling ). This is one of my favorite gym instructors, Cathie Apple. She is a talented musician as well as one of the perkiest gym class instructors ever. I so appreciate her positive attitude every class she teaches. She is such an inspiration in many ways. Act now and get these :
Dig those back muscles right ? She teaches a weights class.
ITS OUR WEDDING !!! YEAHHHHHH ! First off, picture me in a quiet office area letting out a big YEAHHHHH when the good folks at the Our Wedding magazine told me I got the cover/ fashion shoot for their summer fall issue. I was thrilled beyond words, things were great and they were only getting better. If you have not been to the new Crocker Art Museum you really should visit, this place is stunning. So to be given the gift of shooting a high fashion shoot with amazing models and a top stylist, the best hair and make-up people with endless beautiful dresses, jewelry and flowers at the Crocker…I mean dream come true !

Where to begin ?

Add my beloved hair lady Tina Romo and of course I wanted my treasured Shannon from Fancy Pants weddings blog and Flourish to do the flowers. I could not believe it when Rebecca from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca said she would make us some cakes, and man alive did she make us some cakes, she did about 100 times more than I ever expected. And we would have been no where without the Miosa dresses, Jewelry by Tabaybei. HUGE shout out to Crystal Cunagin for getting us the best location possible at the last minute and Deborah Baron letting us use her house. Did I leave anyone out ? YES !!!
