oh-so-lovely bridal fashion

Gena Conti hat; Modern Trousseau gown.

I know I always say this, but I LOVE STYLING BRIDAL!!! And I absolutely looooooove my latest shoot for Hour. The look and feel of this shoot was inspired by vintage fashion images, particularly the work of Richard Avedon. That translated into a 1950s glamour - tailored silhouettes, nipped in waists, ladylike gloves, red lips, and oh yes, lots of hats! For this shoot, I was able to reunite with my favorite Detroit milliner, Gena Conti. I've worked with her on many shoots in the past, and she created the gorgeous headpiece I wore for my own wedding. Her work is stunning, and I highly recommend her for all your chapeau needs! Anyway, on to the shoot! Check out all the oh-so-lovely images by the fabulous Jenny Risher below!

When our brilliant art director, Cassidy, left Hour, I was so, so sad to see her go (but at least we went out with a bang!). Fortunately, she didn't go far, and I recently had the chance to work with her again on a shoot for the Winter issue of Cadillac Magazine. Combining colorful fashion with whimsical illustrations by Lucille Michieli, this shoot was irresistibly fun. Look at all those amazing cakes by Love & Buttercream! And the gorgeous peacock! Between the props and the wardrobe, this was a big job, so many thanks to fellow stylist Janeea Simelane, who came onboard to assist. Check out the full shoot below!
