- Wedding: September 2012
and it was AWESOME!!! i got a lifebooker loot for a 3 hour session with Ron Douglas in brooklyn, ny. it was supposed to include makeup but his MUA bailed last minute. luckily i had scheduled my hair trial for the morning of my shoot and my friendor who’s doing my hair for the wedding is also a MUA so she glammed me out. even tho i had purchased a 3 hour shoot, i think we took pics for almost 4.5 hours and Ron was GREAT. i’m super uncomfortable in front of a camera and totally Chandler out when I know i’m being photographed. Ron had great ideas for poses and was excellent at getting me into positions that made some great pics.
i went in with a bunch of outfits i wanted to do – about 10 i think. we got to do 8 before i was totally burned out and just couldn’t do it anymore lol. 4.5 is a LONG time (i now have newfound respect for the kim kardashians of the world who do this for entire days). my sister and MAU friendor were at the shoot with me helping me with outfit changes etc and i HIGHLY recommend bringing a posse with you. they totally kept my nerves in check and were cracking me up the whole time so i wasnt so focused on the actual picture taking.
i had a blast at the shoot, and even tho i wouldnt let Ron show me pics while he was shooting my sister and friendor were snapping away on their cells the whole time and i loooooooooooved the pictures they showed me after.
if its something you’re considering – DO IT!!
i cant wait to get my pics back and start putting together the book i’m doing for FH.
let me know if youre in NYC and want anymore info on Ron. I would recommend him 1000000%.
