BOHEMIAN ELOPEMENT SHOOT

 When  LeaNicole Photography  asked me to come to Auburn, Alabama (WAR EAGLE) to style hair for a bohemian style shoot, I of course agreed. I have worked with Lea and Nicole several times before and knew the images would be stunning.

  Thorne & Thistle  designed the floral crown and all of the flowers for the shoot. I love working with floral crowns, they smell amazing and are a bohemian bride's dream head piece.

 I love working with real couples and these two were absolutely adorable. For the bride's hair, I wanted large, soft curls to enhance the softness of her gorgeous  Saja  wedding gown. The groom had a great haircut that just needed to be cleaned up.

CHANDELIER SHOOT

 I love working with  LeRae Events & Design  and  Wes Roberts Photography  because the results are always magical! When  Rae Culver  told me she was going to transform her beautiful  rustic barn  into an all white chandelier shoot I knew she was a little crazy but at the same time a GENIUS!

 My mission, after hearing the concept, was to make the bride and groom look just as fabulous. So I chose a strapless sheath gown with a peplum skirt for the bride. This gown has a sophisticated silhouette and by adding the brooch, earrings and headpiece gave it the perfect amount of glamour. To finish the bridal look, I gave the bride a modern version of a classic french twist. The groom I wanted to look handsome and timeless like James Bond, so I chose a classic white tux jacket with black bow tie. Don't they love marvelous!!!!

BOHEMIAN STYLED SHOOT

The shoot was in Auburn, Al (WAR EAGLE) at the  Fountainview Mansion  on a very cold day but you would never know with the way the pictures came out! Simply STUNNING! And this picture made the cover of  Southern Bride Magazine !!!!!

ELEGANT SHOOT

  I had the pleasure of working with  Lea Nicole Photography  again on this elegant photo shoot for  RSVP Magazine . Each model needed to have a different formal hairstyle but they also had to be cohesive to compliment the gorgeous  Saja  dresses.

THE DENIM SHIRT DRESS

  The denim shirt dress is a timeless piece of fashion that will compliment any style. For this look I wanted a 1970's retro style, so I paired a wooden and leather platform sandal with a fringe cross body bag and a double wrap watch.   I added little touches of gold with a feather cuff bracelet and a gypsy necklace. You can finish the look with a  fishtail side braid  hairstyle.

EASY FORMAL STYLE

  This formal style is very easy to recreate. The items you will need are 2 elastic bands for holding ponytails and some bobby pins. Begin with hair that has been curled the day before. Divide hair into front and back sections. Pull back section into low ponytail. Separate hair just above ponytail holder and loop hair through. Tease the ponytail and secure bottom with another elastic band. Roll the ponytail up and over, then secure with bobby pins. You can comb the hair gently to smooth out the bun you have created. Next, part the front section on your natural part and twist each side away from face. Pull the side twist over the top of bun and secure with bobby pins. Do the same for the other side. To finish the look, place a vintage broach or fresh flowers in the center. This formal style will look amazing for any special occasion.

BLACK & WHITE

 I have always loved black and white photos. These are from the Love-N-Lavender shoot and they take my breathe away. Sitting on a stone wall, Janna and Brealynn look timeless.   Photography by : Lea Nicole Photography  Flowers by:  LeRae Events and Design

 This shoot was on an extremely hot day in Alabama and Janna makes modeling look easy. The  Saja Wedding  dress looks light and airy. And I'm in love with how her hair falls just under her arm and to the side.  Photography by:  Lea Nicole Photography   MakeUp by:  Lush Makeup Art

THE OSCARS

 The Oscar fashion last night did not disappoint! There was so many beautiful gowns, hair and makeup it was hard to narrow down to my top picks. But I did! My absolute favorite is Rosamund Pike in a luscious red Givenchy gown. Emma Stone look stunning from head to toe in a backless Elie Saab dress. Jennifer Lopez also wore Elie Saab, her skin tone plunging neckline ball gown was perfection. My favorite fashion risk of the evening is Lupita Nyong'o in Calvin Klein. The fit of the pearl structure was breathe taking against her skin tone. Tell me your favorite!

LOVE-N-LAVENDER

 This styled photo shoot was an amazing experience for me. I got to work with my favorite event planner,  Rae Culver of  LeRae Events and Design ,  who planned my wedding.  Rae asked me to find a soft flowing wedding dress for this shoot. So I chose to use my wedding dress designed by  Saja Wedding . It was simple, delicate, and perfect. This photo was taken toward the end of the shoot and even though I had about 5 minutes to put our model's hair up, it turned out beautiful.  Photography by:  Lea Nicole Photography
