1 Detroit Bridal Session at the Westin Book Cadillac

A small eternity ago, I posted a sneak peek to a bridal session we did at the Westin Book-Cadillac in Detroit featuring Meredith, one of our brides from last year.  I figured it was about time I shared some more images.  So, here you go….FINALLY!

Note to the photographers reading this – for this image and the two below, our main light was an alien bee strobe with a beauty dish.  This was our first time taking the beauty dish out to play and I really loved the quality of light coming from it.  I’m eager to play with this some more….brides…are you listening?

Meredith’s make-up was done by the wonderfully talented DeVawn Testagrossa (check out her new website!)  We’ve worked with DeVawn several times now.  She’s done a few of our previous brides’ make-up and she’s doing our next bride’s make-up this Saturday.  Airbrush make-up is a no-brainer for your wedding day.  When done properly, it’s light, water resistant, and lasts all day….and let me tell you, it makes a HUGE difference in photos.  With the resolution of cameras today and the super-sharp lenses we use, believe me, when an image is zoomed into 100%, I can see every make-up flaw imaginable…and when DeVawn does her magic it’s truly, truly flawless.  She’s not paying me to say this, I swear. If you are getting married this year, you need to go pick up the phone right now and book her.  Seriously.

We were able to shoot in two of the ballrooms at the Book-Cadillac, and then we went up, up, up to one of the penthouse condos. icon smile Detroit Bridal Session at the Westin Book Cadillac

Finally, I’m going to close with the image I originally posted as a teaser months ago, because I still love it:
