The Beauty Addict on Wedding Make-up: Where is the groom?

Bridal-themed photo shoot – one of the concepts I’ve been wanting to do for so long. It was my first time to organize one. I thought it wouldn’t push thru because I didn’t know it would be a little complicated.
  1. Looking for a studio – If you have a target studio, call and have it reserved a month before to ensure your slot.
  2. Looking for a team to collaborate with you – (photographers, models, designers, hair stylists, MUAs). If you don’t have a big budget, look for a team who can do an xdeal with you. Give them a good proposal. If you can’t find one, there’s always a search engine you can rely on. Look for their portfolio and ask for their rates.
In my case, my sis-in-law who's also an MUA wants to build her portfolio so she shared expenses with me :)

3. Prepare your props
– for a bridal-themed photo shoot, there should be a veil, flowers, shoes, hair accessories and jewelries.

Here are some of the teaser shots. Enjoy :)
