- Wedding: May 2016
So we finally got done with our engagement session and can finally add visual fun to our website & Save-the-Dates! WhooHoo!
Our Villain,here, refers to our original Wedding Photographer who had an amazing portfolio, over 45 glowing reviews on weddingwire & the Knot etc, who we unfortunately booked with a 50% deposit… turned out to be a talented Fraud! No joke, we are now in touch with about 10 other couples all over the country who are also pursuing legal action…
Apparently she makes some weddings, but others she cancels 2-3 days before (can you imagine dealing w that right before the wedding?!) and refused to return the $, we ourselves had our Autumn Engagement session rescheduled twice before we wised up… From now on All vendors are going to have to be friend/family-recommended!
Anyhoo… so now we had no photographer and we really needed our E-session, in comes our story’s Hero!
I remembered my Makeup & Hairstylist Kellyn Wiley (of the Parisian Bubble in Atlanta) did some portrait photography on the side… and with the leaves falling fast from the trees us wanting a Fall Engagement, she graciously made herself available to do Makeup, Hair And Photography! So we had a blast hiking up the old Sope Creek Paper Mill to play Dress Up and take some pretty fabulous (if Unorthodox, oh well guess we can look all soft & romantic at the wedding right?) Engagement pics =)
(P.S: Was also w how the pink dress I sewed for the shoot turned out, after a couple tries 😉 Feel more confident about trying to make my wedding dresses now!)
So, This one’s probably my favorite…
We also tried be all artistic & Pinterest worthy =)
Of course one we could use for Christmas (as seen in my weddingbee pic)
And my last favorite…I couldnt take E-pics without the chance to represent my culture in my Saree Or my love for my sweet Cowboy 😉
P.S: As indicated, all the Photography, Makeup and Hair here was courtesy of Kellyn Wiley of the Parisian Bubble 😀
