Blushing Bride


Ok

CLEARLY not blushing….nor a bride. But, this past August, I was given this AMAZING opportunity to be a model for Luxe Bridal Boutique in Ottawa and do a photoshoot in some of their gorgeous gowns. I'd like to backtrack here for a minute and just point out that I am NOT a model. I have no experience behind a camera (minus the "shoots" that Kat and I take). But I have to say, this was one of the most AMAZING experiences of my life. If it hadn't been for Andrew, I'm not sure I would have done the shoot at all. But, the fact that he saw something in me - well….I was floored, humbled and taken aback!

The pictures were taken at the brand new Ottawa Convention Centre and the hope was to do a "stylised" Bridal shoot. One thing I wasn't so thrilled about….my makeup. We won't go there but all in all I enjoyed the experience.  My Hair was done by the fabulous Cut+Blo designer and owner off of Murray St.

Apologies again for slacking on posts. I havent really taken any photos for the last little bit, because as I have said…feeling uninspired by my closet these days.  Hopefully, this will tide you all over until I get some of that inspiration back. Part two of pictures will be posted shortly!










XOXO

  3. Nini! These are gorgeous! How did you keep this a secret? Did I miss something? Your brown skin looks so pretty against the white dress. Not even a real bride could have done it better. Beautiful photos!

  9. These are stunning! You're so pretty and you could've fooled me - I thought you were a model :)

    Whenever I think of women modelling wedding dresses I always wonder whether they feel weird? When I wore my dress it brought up so many emotions and it's so special to me, but I can't imagine ever wearing a dress just to model...

  10. Oh wow! You look stunning in this bridal wear. You make such a good model. I can see why you have been asked to model for them. You should be very proud of yourself, which I know you are.
