Fresh. Fierce. Fabulous.

Last Monday, I had the opportunity to photograph some behind the scenes photos for Jouer Cosmetics at the Kate Spade swimwear launch event at the Gansevoort in NYC. I am primarily a Wedding Photographer, but photographing the behind the scenes was just like photographing a bride getting ready (one of my favorite parts of the wedding day). It was a lot of fun to see what it takes to prepare models for an event. I loved the final makeup looks. The words that came to mind when seeing the final looks were fresh, fierce, and fabulous. I absolutely loved the bold lipstick it was so beautiful on all of the girls and of course went so well with the Kate Spade swimsuits. I saw a few that I’d like to get my hands on. My obsession with bows and polka dots definitely made me love the swimwear even more. The Gansevoort rooftop was a perfect backdrop to these beautiful ladies.  I would love to photograph a wedding there, the hotel and the rooftop were so beautiful.

 Check out these stunning ladies and some of my favorite photos below.

After the ladies makeup was complete, I took a few beauty shots of their final looks.
