Festival inspired Wedding Shoot with Alpacas!

This shoot was a lot of fun, and I absolutely could not turn it down when I saw the mood board! Unfortunately I didn't get to meet the alpacas (they were a 40 minute drive away and we had to limit numbers to people who really needed to go!) but the pictures are absolutely incredible! You can read the full writeup over on Festival Brides as well as see Leesha's awesome video, or keep reading to hear more about the hair, and see my personal selection of highlights.

The Hair

I have to admit, this is the first shoot I felt a little intimidated by the inspiration images for the hair. I just had no idea how I was going to achieve the look and the shape they were going for (especially if there were going to be huge chunks of the shoot I wouldn't be able to be around for!) and how everything would look from a 360 perspective, incorporating the headpieces and making it make sense. I just couldn't picture how it would look at the back. It was one of those occasions where it was 10x easier with Maxine's hair in front of me, and I could just 'do it'. She has absolutely gorgeous, naturally tightly curled hair. I had to comb some of her curls out to section it before I pinned it up, but with some curl product and a micro-wand, I made sure all the curls were reinforced once it was up. I created a tiny French braid across her head where I wanted to pin the rest of her hair into, kept the front section separate, and then created 4 vertical twists at the back, pinning them into the braiding, and then fluffing the lengths out. I then placed the various accessories before taking the pieces I had left out at the front, and styling them over the sides of the headbands so it all looked cohesive. Whenever we changed headband, it was then just a case of unpinning those sections from the front, switching headband, and pining the hair back into place. At the end we took all the pins out, and added a bit more curl product, and just reinforced any pieces that were looking a bit tired before shooting the looks with Maxine's hair down.
