Recently caught up with my forever friends at Gilded Bridal to work on updating some store photos and to grab some headshots of Susan’s new girls, Jensen and Makenzie. It’s no secret that Gilded is one of my favorite places to photograph not only because it is ALWAYS FUN to photograph fancy dresses, but because Susan is a ridiculously fun person. This is quite evident in everything she does, but also evident in how happy her staff is. Everyone is relaxed and incredibly silly, and they all make my job easy just by being themselves. I had already worked with Jensen at another shoot, so I was aware that she’s a super chill and funny person, but I hadn’t yet met Makenzie until this shoot, and SURPRISE: she is also a super chill and funny person. I don’t think Susan would hire anyone who wasn’t, but still. I love how much I always love her staff. I don’t work at Gilded but I kinda wish I did because look at them!

So thrilled to be asked by Gilded Bridal to photograph what was a ridiculously fun model session out at The Prettiest Pieces in Greensboro, NC! With talented models Rosie McVeigh, Rachel Atkinson, Candace Smith, and Gracie Kirkland, and with help from the awesome teams at Makeup by Ashley Mooney and ZimZoom Photobooth, we took a bunch of photos of photographs showcasing the variety of gorgeous designer wedding dresses that Susan keeps in stock at Gilded (and if you want a peek at more from her store, check out this other shoot I did for her last month!). It is SO MUCH FUN to work model shoots, especially when you have talented and gorgeous women to work with who are incredibly adaptive and incredibly good at smiling for four hours even when you throw a bunch of glitter at them.
