Last month, I had the opportunity of highlighting just a sampling of the beautiful dresses that The Bridal Suite and Special Occasion have to offer. Their expertise and knowledge is sure to reduce any amount of anxiety when it comes to selecting that perfect dress.
The styled session was scheduled on a sunny, but brisk day in Downtown Bend. The theme that was chosen was Hollywood Glamour. Our stunning models had their hair and makeup completed by one of our talented association members, Lori Tompos of Edge Hair and Makeup. It turned out perfectly!
We started the session at the peak of golden light when the sun was just getting that hint of warmth. The kind of light that makes a portrait photographer do a happy dance. I can’t speak for Erica Swantek Photography who joined us for a day of creativity and fun but I’m confident that she felt the same. Her images below appear to confirm that as well!
The amazing part about this place we call home is the endless locations that beckon a photoshoot. Even downtown Bend, a few steps from the hustle and bustle of Wall and Bond Street you have Drake Park. Green rolling hills (or white…depending on the season) bordering Mirror Pond. Reflecting the colors of the day beautifully! Downtown, you have the historic Tower Theater which just happened to fit our theme of Hollywood Glamour.
No wonder Central Oregon is becoming the destination wedding capital! We didn’t even make it out of town. That’s next!
Thanks to these vendors for being part of our styled shoot:
