Tesori Bridal Editorial with Gelynda
When Gelynda and I first connected on Instagram, I knew I wanted to create a safe, amazing modeling experience for her. She had never had the opportunity to do a true bridal look before, so I sent a message to my girls at Tesori and we scheduled a time for Gelynda to try on dresses – yes, like a real bride!
When we arrived, Lindsey was there to welcome us and help Gelynda find the perfect dress. It was such a wonderful experience, and so much fun! My sweet friend Hannah did Gelynda’s hair and makeup, keeping her natural and fresh and glowy. We didn’t want to hide her freckles or straighten her curls. We wanted the real Gelynda.
Gelynda is such a kindred spirit. She completely rocked this session while chatting away about life. She’s so easy to get along with, and such an amazing model. I’m so grateful we got to explore parts of Downtown Fayetteville together. She even let me shoot some direct flash in the studio at the end, and some film on my old Memory Maker :)
So grateful to have had this time together and can’t wait to work together again!
