SBRealWoman Photo Shoot


SB Real Woman Photo Shoot

We hosted our second annual SB Real Woman photo shoot in the salon with local Orlando fashion bloggers and Orlando wedding vendors. The SB Real Woman photo shoot focuses on celebrating women from all over with all shapes and sizes. Just like the first SB Real Woman shoot, we teamed up with local Orlando fashion bloggers to complete the shoot. The bloggers all have their own style and brand, we really wanted to style them based on how they dress everyday.
Our first blogger, Ashley, of Ashley Brooke Nicholas, wore Symphony by Suzanne Neville. Ashley dresses classic and slightly preppy, so this gown was perfect for her. Symphony is a tulle ball gown with a silk bodice with a lazer cut lace trim at the bottom. We paired her look with accessories by Maria Elena. Makeover Station completed her look with bright, fresh makeup. Simone with Makeover Station added teal eye liner, blush, and pink lip gloss. Ashley’s look is perfect for the preppy, ethereal bride.

We even played with lighting!


Second blogger to shoot was Missy with Pop of Style. Missy’s photos from the SBRealWoman  were stunning! We couldn’t wait to style her again. She is so fun and has an amazing silhouette. Styling her is always a dream. Just like the first shoot, Missy wore Ines Di Santo. Just like Missy’s blog name, she loves pops of color and adding some fun to any outfit. To incorporate her pop of color, Makeover Station added a bold red lip to her look.

 DVF Reality Star, Abigail Petit, was so fun to shoot. Between Beyonce’s Flawless playing in the back and her wearing our textured Oscar de la Renta gown & veil, the energy was amazing. Makeover Station kept her hair natural and added a dark plum lip and gold shimmer eyes. We completed her look with a bold hair piece by Paris by Debra Moreland, and cuff by Maria Elena. The gold accents and the texture on the accessories tied everything together, but kept it fun and trendy.

Shannon from Upbeat Soles has a light, organic, and bohemian feel with her outfits and style. We love styling her because of her everyday style. Last photo shoot, we styled Shannon in a sexy lace gown, this shoot we wanted to give her a completely different look. We chose a blush tulle ball gown by Jim Hjlem by Hayley Paige. The gown also has a super cute bold floral detail that is romantic and so fun.

Up next was blogger, Kristie, with If The Choo Fits. We were so excited to work with Kristie! Kristie was new to the SB Real Woman shoot, but we have worked with Kristie in the past. She is so kind, chic, and has such an amazing sense of style. Roberta and I chose Morning by Ines Di Santo. Morning was perfect for Kristie because of how sleek and sexy the gown is. We paired this gown with accessories by Maria Elena and heels by Carmen Steffans. Makeover Station added a fun pony tail bronze makeup to complete her look.

Blogger, and shoe lover, Tonya Walker, from The Shoe Maven, is another blogger we were so excited to style and work with. The photos were so gorgeous and it was a huge success. Tonya’s style is classic and she always wear the best shoes!  To keep Tonya’s classic style, we styled in her in Heather by Suzanne Neville. This gown is a silk organza skirt with a lace bodice  and satin sash. We paired her look with fun pumps to keep her signature shoe brand.

Former Solutions real bride and blogger, Ananda, from Super Fashionable is someone we always enjoy working with. Ananda is naturally beautiful and kind, so picking out her gown was a breeze. Ananda’s everyday style is glamorous and chic, so Fontanne by Ines Di Santo was a gown Roberta and I reserved just for her. To complete the glamorous look, we added all accessories by Maria Elena.

Blogger, Stephanie, with the Diary of a Debutante, is always so easy to work with. Stephanie is so classy and gorgeous. Last Sb Real Woman shoot, she was one of our favorites. She wore a classic lace gown and made it look so luxurious. This Sb Real Woman shoot, we chose Zania by Ines Di Santo. Zania was perfect for Stephanie because of the color of the gown as well as the fit. The warm gold color of the gown is breath taking with Stephanie’s complexion & the contrast with her dark hair. To finish the look, we chose all accessories by Maria Elena.

Our final blogger of the night was Maria, blogger of Orlando Fashion Girl. Maria worked with us at the last SB Real Woman shoot. Orlando Fashion Girl discloses her full identity by not showing her full face. To keep her brand and hiding her face, we chose cherish by Suzanne Neville. Cherish was a great gown because it high lighted her tiny waist line as well as just simply having fun with the skirt of the gown. Maria spun around while Kristen did what she does best, capture beauty, fashion, and bridal.
