Circus Chic Photo Shoot

September 30, 2011
A few weeks ago I posted photos of the Ring Leader from the Circus Chic photo shoot I participated in and I promised the rest of the photos would be up soon.  
Well here they are!  
This photo shoot was put together by Amanda with Branches Event Floral and Mollie with Polka Dots and Daisies.  Amanda and Mollie wanted to create a environment where a select group of photographers could come and have a photographers play date.  The backdrops, props, styled models, everything was set up and provided for the photographers, all they had to do was show up and HAVE FUN!
The concept for the shoot was a bride and groom having a circus wedding, with all of their guests being crazy, eclectic circus people.  I did hair and make-up for the ring leader and the bride, while 2 other stylists did hair and make-up for the rest of the models.  The look I created for the ring leader was fierce, bold and dramatic, just like a ring leader would be.  We wanted there to be a stark contrast between the circus people and the bride, so while everyone else looked crazy and over the top, the look I did on the bride was classic, simple, elegant and timeless.
It was a lot fun to work with the other stylists,  and with Amanda, Mollie and the different photographers.  It's awesome to see how it all came together! 
Thanks Amanda and Mollie for including me in this!
