Charity Shootouts, Pt.1

The Charity Engagement Shootout on May 23rd at the Bel Air Bay Club in beautiful Pacific Palisades was a major success! Charity Shootouts and teamed up to offer engaged couples and wedding pros an opportunity to mix, mingle and get photo sessions from some of the top photographers in Southern California. Even more, all the proceeds of this event benefited BRIDGES TO ABILITY, whose mission is to improve the lives of teens and adults with disabilities through quality vocational, educational, social and recreational programs.Charity Shootouts is an organization founded by Beverly Hills wedding photographer, Jen O’Sullivan to bring new and seasoned, talented photographers together with engaged couples searching for the perfect wedding photographer as well as wedding industry specialists who need an updated headshot. The 2 shots above are couples whose makeup and hair I did.

Shootout,Part 2: The Coordinators

Carrie Goldberg of Mary Dann Events ,VikkiMarsee, All You Need Is Love Events ,Cheryl Jablow, Social Frog Designs

Here are three of the coordinators I worked with. Carrie Goldberg of Mary Dann Events is sweet, high energy and knew exactly what she wanted which was dramatic eyes and coral colored lips.
Vikki Marsee of All You Need is Love Events has the most beautiful porcelain skin ( not a visible pore to be found!) and generously let me do whatever I wanted. Cheryl Jablow of Social Frog Designs has a thousand watt smile and sparkly eyes that were asking me to grace her with a few individual
faux lashes! These ladies don't just create the party, they ARE the party!

Now, For Something Completely Different...

A few weeks ago, photographer, David Palmer called to see if I'd like to do a 1940's style shoot, complete with a "fainting couch" and a model with a Lauren Bacall sultriness.I immediately thought of Bacall in "The Big Sleep" and jumped at the opportunity! In addition to all the obvious reasons why I wanted to do this, a lot of my bridal clientele have been asking for this look. Now, I have something to show them!
