We couldn’t be more pleased with how these images turned out! The model, Kaitlin, oozed glamour in an Ines Di Santo gown from our salon. Nicoletta Daskalakis was the brains behind this pared-down shoot. Pared down, as in nature and (urban) landscape paired with high voltage wedding appeal. No props, no tricks with the camera; just pure bridal goodness. And that makeup, so warm and sultry, and hair, sleek and chic – a perfect partnership to accompany that beautiful gown. Enjoy the images. ♥ Credits: Photography: Beauty and Photography / Location: Glendale, CA / Wedding Dress: Ines Di Santo, from Lovella Bridal / Hair & Makeup: Nicoletta Daskalakis /Accessories: Brides and Hairpins.

Bobbi Brown lipstick, Chanel highlighter, and Josie Maran concealer were all listed as items used. The hair hearkened back to retro appeal, as well. The lead hairstylist of Damali NYC was tasked with creating a “modern yet elegant hairstyle that is a little retro, but still soft and pretty.” And of course, everything was topped off with Maria Elena Headpieces hair accessories – surely the cherry on top!
