International Women's Day 2018 Bridesmaids Edition

I decided to use International Women's Day to give a shout out to all the bridesmaids out there standing by their friend on her wedding day.  Being a bridesmaid is such an honor, right? You get to be there for one of your best friends as she marries the man of her dreams.  You get to help her in the planning process, help her into her dress, and you gladly wait on her hand and foot that day! You apply lipstick and put her shoes on.  You make sure her champagne glass is always full.  You check for any hair out of place.  Heck, you may even help her as she goes to the bathroom because, whoever has tried to pee in a wedding dress knows, you're gonna need some help!

Dry Lake Bed Wedding Portraits {Keira + Brandon}

So excited I got to photograph the super talented Las Vegas makeup artist and amazing person, Keira and her equally warm-hearted Brandon.  Seriously, if you are looking for a makeup artist, do yourself a favor and check out Las Vegas Makeup Girl, you won't be disappointed!  

Being in the wedding industry I have known Keira for serval years now and we run into each other at networking events, follow each other on social media, and of course I also refer brides to her for makeup.  

Keira and Brandon weren't able to get wedding portraits of just the 2 of them on their wedding day, so I was super happy to fix that little problem for them!  So the two of them slipped back into their wedding attire and we met out on the dry lake bed about 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas and we made some magic.  It's always such a great time when I get to capture beautiful and genuine smiles from our couples.  When our couples are so in love, they just glow and happiness spews out.  That was Keira and Brandon and it was perfection.  XO
