 A couple weeks ago I invited Jade and her husband Cory to shoot a "look book" in our luscious vintage bridal salon. I pointed out a couple of dresses I wanted to feature and opened up my personal jewelry collection and then left them alone to play. I was thrilled when I saw the results. Jade has the classic alabaster beauty to really make the dresses come to life. But don't get me wrong, Jade is far more than just a stunning beauty. She is a talented photographer and artist. She's also a pretty fantastic make-up artist ( I overheard her tell someone it's MAC Russian Red she's wearing) and she hand crafted the amazing headpiece she's wearing. If you ask really nice maybe you can get her to make you one:)

Thanks to Jade and Cory for making beautiful pictures.
