This has to be one of my most fav Creative shoots I have done to date!!
Anyone who knows me knows I love all things girly and Disney. I’ve always dreamed of doing a mermaid inspired shoot due to my love of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. I always wanted to be Ariel when I was little even if then I couldn’t swim! (I can now). So I arranged the creative shoot with the ladies I knew would help turn this shoot to life and create our mermaids.
Just look at these sparkle dresses!!! As always the girls at Creative Ideas Bridal, Armagh & Cookstown had the perfect dresses for this shoot. The sparkle dresses were perfect for the look we were going for and the Bridal dress was perfect when our Little Mermaid lost her tail and was waiting on her prince.
Hair Stylist Suzanne Strain from Chocolate Blonde Hair Couture is as big a fan of Disney as I am and I knew she would love to do a mermaid inspired shoot! Hair styling was amazing as always and Suzanne had stylist Beth Simms (this girl is a wizz when comes to hair colour!) on hand to help create the looks!
There was only one Make Up Artist for the job on this shoot, Stacey’s from sak Designs ability to transform the girls from bridal (as shown in bridal images below) to mermaids is second to none. OK you wouldn’t choose the mermaid make up for your wedding day but going to a festival you would definitely turn heads. Stacey as been the make up artist at a lot of the weddings I have photographed and I can highly recommend her for completely your wedding day look.
The final touches with the beautiful flower crown and armbands were by the fab Sarah-Jane at Vintage Violet Floral Boutique! The perfect finish for our Mermaid Princess.
The shoot wouldn’t have been complete without our two stunning models, who were a dream to work with. Hollie Keegan just knows how to work it in front of a camera and the mermaid look suited her perfectly. Sophie Willis my hat goes off to you for getting right into that water on not the warmest of days and only on your second shoot ever! You were a real pro and are stunning!!
Thank you to all you lovely ladies that took part in the shoot. I cannot wait for the next Creative shoot. If you our a vendor and would like to collaborate get in touch!
