A few weekends ago, I worked with Ed and Monica Pingol as well as Maria Chang and Karen Alumno of Professional Makeup Artistry and Fresh Bloom, respecively. I posted about it here, but promised some more photos. Well, here's me making good on my promise.
Maria is the consummate professional. She really is the photographer's best ally on the wedding day. She's constantly touching up makeup, helping to bustle the dress, refreshing the curls, herding the crowds and doing whatever else needs doing. It almost makes me wonder how photogs get along without a Maria Chang in the mix! Here are two candids of Maria rocking the glam without even trying.
Here's Ed, Maria, and Karen.
Karen had this awesome minimalist floral display set at the front of the ceremony area, but a curious little girl accidentally knocked it over causing glass and river rocks to skitter across the floor. After checking to see if the little girl was OK, Curtis - Karen's husband and assistant as well as old videographer colleague of mine - cleaned up the glass and rocks before anyone got hurt or was the wiser. Karen and her quick-thinking re-made the display with a spare vase and the show was back on in no time.
