When it comes to inspiration for styled shoots, this one is just about as sweet as it gets. Makeup artist Jenny Almazan of Blushing Beauty was inspired by her own daughters playing dress-up and dreaming of fairy tale life, and brought on the talents of Anna Delores Photography and Bright Inc. to bring her vision to life. Of course, some incredible gowns from Hayley Paige only helped the cause!
From the makeup artist, Jenny Almazan of Blushing Beauty: This bridal shoot has been bouncing around in my imagination for awhile now and was such a joy for me to bring to life! As a mother of two daughters, I used their genuine, heartfelt, optimistic outlook as my main inspiration. I can’t help but well with pride when I see them dress up and pretend to be princesses. Their untainted view of the world and belief in magic is something I hope they are able to maintain as they grow. It is easy to see how beautiful they feel when adorned in their dress-up clothes, mommy’s makeup, and make-shift crowns, and this is exactly how I want them to feel as brides someday.
Their lighthearted and hopeful attitude is why I can’t get enough of Hayley Paige wedding gowns. Hayley somehow perfectly captures this childlike fantasy in the dresses she designs. They have the perfect balance of whimsy and maturity, and make the women wearing them feel like they are in a fairytale. The way she captures the essence of make-believe in her garments gives me hope my babies will grow up to be sweet, honest, and fun-loving princesses, especially on their wedding days!
