Queen for the Day with Sharon Rai and Deanna McCollum

I had the amazing opportunity to see first hand how great Sharon Rai Hair and Makeup Artistry and Deanna McCollum Photography are. Any opportunity to spread the word about why brides need a planner and I'm on board which is why I was happy to answer some questions and show Deanna a bit of my work for her blog. It was an added bonus to have Sharon offer to do my hair and make up for the photo shoot as well!

I'm generally a pretty plain girl when it comes to hair and make up so I will admit I was a little nervous to have it done but man was it a blast! Sometimes a girl needs to get dolled up and have her photo taken! From start to finish Sharon was a true professional and expert at what she does. Her vast array of make up and years of experience made the process a breeze. Her studio space is stunning and she is always prepared with snacks and beverages. She made me feel comfortable and at ease as she quickly worked her magic. It was a luxurious add on to have her help in styling me in between photos, fixing every little piece of hair along the way!

Deanna was also a joy to work with. She made me feel at ease and comfortable with being in the spot light...something I think I could get used to! We did the shoot in the new Details studio located in the same space as Sharon Rai Hair and Make up Artistry.

I put together a table setting with some floral arrangements and Deanna truly captured every little detail. The stunning flowers came from Monterosso Imports and were truly breathtaking to work with.

I'm honored to call these two super stars my friends and am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them on this fun project!
