I’d been wanting to do a shoot with my friend Crystal Vasquez forever. She’s a great makeup artist working in western Mass who has helped me on a number of shoots over the years, most recently for a fun fashion shoot down in Chinatown. She invited me to her space outside of Springfield where she runs a business focused on beauty for weddings.
Wanting to raise the bar on this shoot, I contacted my friend Rachel at 40 Winks in Harvard Square to see if she would be willing to help with wardrobe. She and her business partner Meredith opened their lingerie boutique a few years ago and we’ve partnered on some projects so I thought she might be interested. She rocked it by loaning us some great pieces for the shoot.
The last piece was finding a model, and Morgan is a real gem. She’s from western Mass as well so it was great not having to find some one to drive all the way from Boston. Everything from the shoot turned out better than I could have expected, so thanks to every one who helped make it awesome.
