Yesssssss…..I totally hooked up you guys….and I had the best time of my life. It was incredible, eye-popping and oh so fantasmic. Who, you ask? Well, I hooked up with Pittsburgh’s finest vendors to bring you this tiny sneak peek.
But seriously, this was one of those days that I thank my lucky stars for people that support my crazy ideas. I had an idea, reached out to a bunch of awesome people that do a bunch of awesome things in Pittsburgh, and for some reason they allowed me to beg, borrow and steal their talents. This still amazes me.
Two shoots, 2 muses, 1 hair and makeup stylist, 1 luxury retail store, 1 vintage furniture rental company, 1 florist, 2 incredible locations in 1 building, 1 cinematographer, 1 super awesome assistant…..and some absolutely incredible photographs to prove we actually had the day we all thought we had.
This is just a sneak peek and there is so much more to come. Don’t forget to click on the cool behind the scenes film…what a day….
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU (to infinity) At Home Beauty, Maelissa Gould, Luna Boutique, Old Souls Vintage Rentals, Karrie Hlista Designs, Daisy Munoz, Ashleigh Mitchell Calvert and Hip at the Flashlight Factory. I am grateful beyond compare for your generosity and for allowing me to borrow your incredible talents.

That’s about what it feels like once you get over the nerves….comfortable, relaxed, yet oh-so-powerful. The first outfit is always the hardest. The second I watch them stretch out a bit. By the third they feel like they could keep doing this all day….and the fourth? Well, let’s just say that gal is a whole heck of a lot different than the gal in that first outfit….
“He is NEVER going to believe I did this!”, as she looks at the back of my camera. “He’s going to be sooooo shocked!” This beautiful woman let her hair down for a gift for her groom. I think that will qualify her for Best Wife of the Year Award…but I’m biased.

Did you know that it’s a big tradition in the south to go in ahead of your wedding for bridal portraits in your big, gorgeous gown? I have no idea why in the world this awesome tradition didn’t span past the Mason Dixon, but I’m thinking we northerners need to adapt.
You toil over it, you work out for it, you research it, you get all googly-eyed over it, you make gaggles of women road trip with you to pick it out, you lose sleep over it and then….you wear it, for reals. You shine, you twirl, you’re ooooohed and awwwwwwed over it, you’re a princes for a day in it. Then you put it away. For life.
Yeah. That sucks.
Or, you know…come see me and have the time of your life, an experience of a lifetime, be a model for a day, glam yourself out to the max and have gorgeous photographic proof of your all-encompassing, world-renowned, jaw-dropping beauty.
Just sayin’….. Makeover by Hannah Conrad.
