Enchanted Metallics Bridal Shoot

Danielle Bisbano - Thursday, November 27, 2014

Talk about an ideal setting for a wedding!  Lush green fields lined with towering pines.  Annuals and perennials that perfectly surround the ceremony area and its beautiful bluestone altar.  The privacy and uniqueness of The Farmer’s Daughter make for the perfect outdoor venue for your special day.  This was the site for my most recent photo shoot, “Enchanted Metallics”, with Made in March photography.

The theme of this shoot was “Enchanted Metallics” and the stunning set design is credited to Jennifer Gee of Gwen Studios.  Using flowers from Greenlion Weddings, Jennifer crafted a gorgeous table display featuring copper from East Coast Tinning and calligraphy from Brown Fox Calligraphy. 


 Liz and I were brought on board for hair and makeup.  We had some inspiration boards to look over but we were given free reign to create the looks we thought would work for the concept.  Liz chose to construct a beautiful fishtail braid for Mariah and it worked perfectly with her style and dresses.  In keeping with the metallic theme, I wanted to make sure to include some with the makeup. 


I chose a coppery eyeshadow for Mariah and balanced it with a sheer wash of color for her lips and cheeks.  I used some of my favorite products for this shoot.  To even out her skin, I used the new Beautycounter Tint Skin Complexion Coverage.  Then, to achieve the flushed cheek I had in mind, I used Beautycounter’s Lip Sheer in Plum as a cream blush and then used it again on her lips.  I topped that off with a light layer of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss in Rhythm Box to add dimension.  The best part of this shoot for me?  Being able to do makeup while sitting on the grass.  I was in heaven.


I always love working with Made in March.  Sarah’s got a killer eye so I know the images will always be on point. 

I love my job.
