With this photoshoot being published in Style Me Pretty yesterday, I am SO excited to share my favorite photos of Sarah Vendal, a contestant on this past season of The Bachelor!
We had such a blast shooting in Laguna Beach, one of Sarah’s favorite Southern California getaways. The Inn at Laguna Beach was home base as Sarah had her hair & makeup done by celebrity artist Suzie Moldavon. Events by Talissa brought all of these vendors and details together by designing the most beautiful decor. I loved our beach cruiser by Pacific Beach Bike Shop which was styled with a blanket, bottle of rosé and a gorgeous bouquet by Compass Floral. Our amazing wardrobe by The Stylist LA, who works with The Bachelor cast regularly, brought some of their favorite outfits to the shoot.
After shooting on the boardwalk, we made our way to the beach for my favorite part of the day. As I mentioned, Sarah loves the beach and is also a big fan of brunch so it only made sense to combine the two with a brunch picnic on the beach! BORN + MADE created a custom hat for Sarah that said it all, “My Happy Place.” Thanks to Love Tatum from Shoppe California, we had a variety of jewelry to incorporate with wardrobe. A custom “Cheers” sign by Letter To You and Kerry Cassill’s collection of hand dyed cotton materials used to make the umbrella matched our candle lit beach picnic perfectly.
A huge thank you to all of the amazing vendors and to Sarah Vendal for allowing us to bring this photoshoot to life. I am so excited for you as you embark on this new journey and am grateful to have photographed you in your “Happy Place”!
