Allie is one of our beautiful brides planning her wedding for early next year. From the moment we met, I could easily sense that Allie would be an incredible bride to work with. Her caring nature and infectious laughter make it easy to love her. She naturally draws everyone in with a genuine authenticity. It has been a pleasure to work with her and I can’t wait to keep planning for next year!
For every wedding booked, we give couples the option for an engagement session or a glam beauty session for the bride prior to the wedding. The sessions are vital because they allow for us to get to know couples prior to the most stressful day of their life (hello wedding bells!) and they allow for time to work out posing nerves. We decided that for this session, Allie would take a break from the wedding stress and enjoy a much-needed girl’s day out.
Glam It Up!
Glam sessions are planned weeks (sometimes months!) in advance to ensure that everything that our clients are dreaming of can be made possible. From finding the perfect dress to deciding upon makeup, it’s almost like getting ready for a second prom! On session day, my team and I work tirelessly to make sure that every participant feels like a VIP. Glam sessions are designed to provide women with a chance to celebrate their inner and outer beauty. I believe that ALL women are gorgeous, however, some may need a bit of reminding of just how incredible they are as time goes by. It’s our goal at KDR to work with women to reveal their ideas for their dream session as well as to make them feel completely confident by the end of the day.
Additionally, our incredible makeup artist, Ingrid Kellar, is onsite to work her magic for clients. She is a professional artist, so she has an incredible eye for perfectly sculpting a client’s face as well as for matching her ideal tones.
Allie isn’t used to wearing makeup, so it was an especially exciting experience. Just look at her reaction!! Isn’t she adorable?
I tend to favor the juxtaposition of pretty dresses in natural settings. Allie, though cautious in various aspects of life, has a wild spirit beneath the surface and so I felt that taking her to all my all time favorite water-filled location would be a perfect match. In Tucson, Arizona, water is not a common feature. However, if you know where to look, there are several locations that allow for privacy and flowing water!
Allie is vibrant and loves color, which is kind of our perfect match! We chose two colors for her session, a bright sunshine yellow along with a soft pink. The yellow not only highlights Allie’s features, but it makes Allie the center of attention in the water setting. For the soft sunset hues, we went with the complimentary soft pink hue for a slight Marilyn Monroe vibe. Coincidently, Allie’s little sister was wearing a similar shade, so we couldn’t resist pulling her in for a shot!
Allie, you are invigorating beyond words. Your zest for life and willingness to try new things filled my heart to the brim with joy. It’s an honor to come along for the ride on this experience in your life. I pray that we know each other for many years to come and that life brings you endless happiness and joy. You deserve it!!
