Hello World!  First blog post evvveerrrrr

For those of you who don’t know Vancouver it RAINS here.  Like, a lot. All the time.
So what do couples and photographers do when it rains? 
Embrace it, get wet and create something beautiful!

 Jennifer's Look
I wanted to have the softness of the waves to compliment her beautiful classic lace wedding dress but I wanted to add big dutch braids for an edgy textured look that would go great with her black leather jacket.  I used a BaByliss PRO 1" curling iron to add waves starting at the nape of her neck to her crown.  I then added 2 dutch braids on either side going from her hairline down about mid way.  I began to pull out her braids to make them appear fuller and add more drama to the style.    Then I  met the 2 braids in the back and pinned them into place.  Using a wide tooth metal hair pick, I loosed the waves by running the comb thru a couple of times.  To finish the look off I used sexyhair's smooth & seal shine spray , Kenra 25 finishing spray and sexyhair weather proof humidity spray (because, Vancouver).

Gabe's Look

Goodbye man bun, Hello man braid
For Gabe’s look I used some Kenra silkening gloss to tame his frizz and add shine, sexyhair voluminzing powder at the roots for volume.  I then did a French braid from front to back and gently pulled out some of the hair to really give the look some volume.  To secure the braid I twisted the end and inserted the pins vertically, finishing the look off with Kenra 25 finishing spray.  PS.....The braid was not planned but after playing around for a bit we all agreed it looked great so we decided to go with it!
 

 I think we made the right decision ;)

I was so happy to be apart of such a great shoot.  Looking forward to more of these creative and stylish shoots throughout the year.  Thank you to everyone involved for making this rainy day into something magical.
