trashed… ten years later

19 May

Susan is truly one of THEE most beautiful women I have ever met… she is genuinely sweet, funny and down-to-earth {and I am luck to call her one of my very best friends}.   When she brought up the idea of a “Trash the Dress” shoot to celebrate her TEN YEAR anniversary I all but picked out a date and set up the shoot myself!  I was SO excited to doll her up for this creative shoot {captured by the brilliant Colleen Sherman of Color Me Rad} … which included flawless Airbrush Makeup, bright paint, two energetic and adorable kids, an abandoned ship in a field and wild grass up to our waists.

Sheer awesomeness.

Oh… and did I mention she is celebrating her TEN YEAR anniversary? TWO KIDS later? In her WEDDING GOWN?  Yes ladies.  And dare I say she looked even better 10 years later.  If I didn’t love her so much I might be a little sick.

I focused on creating a flawless Airbrush foundation with a beautiful natural glow and framed Susan’s eyes with soft golds and browns.  I topped off her look with long sexy lashes and a nude pink lip!

Check out Susan’s absolutely AMAZING photos from her “Paint the Dress” shoot… and be prepared for a little photo overload…


... After

When Susan and her husband, Jesse, tied the knot they had some (ahem…) problems with their photographer (for issues totally unrelated to them, the photog ended up in jail) soooooo Susan and Jesse only have a few 4X6 pics of their Special Day, no album or enlargements. To make up for it, this shoot began with a more traditional and clean feel to capture beautiful Susan in her wedding gown before getting dirty…

…and then it was time to get messy…

{the kids obviously had a terrible time}


It was so much fun to doll up Susan for her  “Trash the Dress” shoot!  What a creative way to celebrate 10 years!

Susan, you are all sorts of beautiful and awesome… love you!


Because the shoot was SO amazing, it was featured on Rock n Roll Bride!  Click  the image below to see more from Susan’s shoot!


BIG High Five to Colleen Sherman of Color Me Rad for being such a genius behind the camera lens and capturing all the
amazing shots above!
