01 Jan Maui Destination Wedding – Gettin’ Pretty (pt2)
The first stop of the day, Leeann’s condo, to capture the bride and bridesmaid getting all snazzied-up. A girl has to look good on her wedding day, right? It was the first set of shutter clicks of the day, just a few of the thousands to be taken before I called it a day.
Like I said in the last post, with CNN there to video the wedding, the wedding coordination company was pulling out all the stops, everything that Leeann and Daymeon (bride and groom) had arranged for the wedding months ago all got multiplied by the coordination company so they looked perfect for CNN (they did a pretty darn good job too, they got this event about as close to perfect as possible). That meant, among a slew of other free upgrades for the couple, Leeann had a duo of hair/makeup artists following her around all day. Not a bad perk, eh?
As Leeann (bride) and Alison (bridesmaid) took turns with hair and makeup, I hovered around and documented the details. The MUA’s were very nice, as they tolerated my big camera roaming the place, along with the occasional flash popping.
The girls sipped on bubbly as they got beautified.
As the girls got closer to finishing, I packed up and headed out to the wedding location. I wanted to get there a bit early to capture the venue before guests arrived so I could get shots of all the details and have nice, clean backgrounds. Stay tuned…
