When Laura McAllister, of Laura Lorraine Designs, contacted Randi Marie and I (aka The Wedding Girls) about teaming up for a styled wedding shoot in Palm Springs, CA, without hesitation we both said YES! Not only is Palm Springs one of our favorite vacation spots ever, but for this shoot we would be working with two of the best hair and make up artists in the industry; Rikki Tieman (owner of Hair Ya Go) and Laura Crivello (owner of Blush Make Up Artistry.
Despite hotel issues and crazy wind storms the team pulled together. We made lemonade out of a sack full of lemons. While Randi Marie and I photographed the beautiful couple, Laura L. chased down pieces from the tablescape that had been knocked over and were now blowing away. In between the gusts of wind Laura C. reapplied the model's lashes and touched up her makeup and Rikki did on the spot hair surgery taking blown out curls and creating a beautiful, messy up-do that worked perfectly in the windy weather.
In the end, the chaos of the day didn't ruin the shoot. We worked with what we had as best we could and I am thrilled with how everything came out. We all worked together and despite the craziness all around us we kept our composure all pulled it off.
A special thanks goes out to the amazing team of women who made this shoot possible.
