she said yes

30 Aug

I had the sweet honor of dolling-up Chantal for her surprise Engagement Shoot this past weekend.  What made this shoot so extra-amazing was the un-traditional’ness of it…  

What she thought was going to be a simple “we’re so in love” shoot when she came to California from Saudi Arabia and he was home from deployment after over a year of building a relationship spanning two continents, thousands of miles, a 20 hour flight and
10 hour time difference…
ended in the perfect day for him to get on one knee.

And the shoot could not have been more perfectly magical:
Chantal was treated to champagne and Celebrity’esque pre-shoot pampering  with {tear-resistant} Airbrush Makeup and Hair Styling {by myself and one of my amazing Hair Artists} then she was whisked away to a beautiful shoot styled by Couture Events where every sweet & candid emotion was captured by Bryan Miller Photography.

Here’s a sneak-peek at

…Oh… and she said yes ♥

I am so excited for Cristal’s Big Day coming up in August! This little lovely will be tying the knot at the GORGEOUS and renowned Immaculata in San Diego in full military style! I just don’t think it gets any more regal and stunning than that classic sword arch!

Cristal and I talked about the differences between Traditional Couture Makeup and Airbrush Makeup and decided on Airbrush to create the look of flawless skin (without looking heavy) that will last all day and photographs absolutely beautifully. I complimented her beautiful skin with a light smoky eye and sultry glossed lips!

Check out her Before & Afters from her Engagement Shoot
dolling-up below!



~Cristal, I am so excited for your August Wedding!  Enjoy these last few months leading up to your Big Day!~
