Mermaid Bride

 It's not everyday you get a message from random strangers saying "We need a model and we heard you might be available!"
Let me start off by saying,  I was on the fence about going for multiple reasons!

1. Stranger Danger! However, after a quick phone conversation saying and asking all of the right things, I knew it was legitimate AND we were meeting in a public place! 
2. It was an hour drive and I was already loosing daylight!
3. I was gross! I had been working outside all day and I needed a shower like yesterday!
Finally I decided "What's life without a little adventure?!"

So I showered without washing my hair, (Gasp!) and put makeup on as fast as I possibly could!
I headed towards the beach with a feeling of nervous excitement in my tummy!
When I met the girls I knew I had made the right decision!

These were my kind of people, you could tell that what they were doing wasn't just a job for them.
They truly loved every part of it!
The team was made up of two stylists and a photographer.
I found out that the photographer was shooting with film!!!
I was elated but I had never done a photo shoot with film so it was also a little bit daunting!
You carefully wait for the perfect shot and you don't see them right away on a little screen!

Jennifer(The photographer) sends them off to a little photo lab and doesn't get them back until a week or two later.
I'm so used to digital these days and all of it's instant gratification.
But I must say there is just something about film, a romantic quality that makes everything look soft like you could reach through and touch the skirt of this amazing dress.
For more of Jennifer's work visit her instagram is @jenniferpharrphotography.

 Mary Kendall and Victoria were the lovely stylists that created the gorgeous bouquet and set up the table fit for a mermaid princess's wedding!
Victoria also did the calligraphy on the place card, for more of her work check out

Mary Kendall was crucial in picking the perfect dress for this beach wedding shoot!
