The second I chatted with Suzi via phone, I knew she would be a great bride to work with. Little did I know how fun her fiance Joe would be as well (this guy has Top Model in the bag!).
Because Suzi+Joe were eloping, we decided to concentrate our efforts on an elaborate engagement session in their hometown of LA. With the help of two friends, the amazing styling duo Two Shoppers (310-867-4888), we focused the wardrobe on a Latin inspired theme. And since Suzi just released her first novel Love Habits, I visualized a long, forbidden romance… A romance out of a Harlequin novel set at a train station.
The photos shot in the station remind me of a watercolor or fresco. They evoke such a longing for love, such emotion, passion, and desire. I love the images as they run to catch the last train. We continued on to the colorful Olvera Street for some more fun and campy imagery.
As for the makeup & hair, I was fortunate enough to steal away Missy Sandora from her daily TV gig for a day of her incredible artistry. Lucky for me, Style Me Pretty is going to give you the full story and photos on the LBB on July 23rd…Check back in to see the beautiful story of Suzi+Joe.
