Celebrating St. Patrick's Day at Sunset


’Tis the season of spring to wear green!

For this festive shoot I teamed up with dream team Kristina Stuller, a makeup artist at Reve Salon & Spa and MisfitBeauty, and Joshua Ball, a photographer of Ball Multimedia. The dynamic duo has a passion for creating colorful portraits through Kristina's bold vision and Josh's smart execution. Their professional chemistry benefits from years of individual experience and over four years of dating.

The vision for this shoot started out as a St. Patrick's Day makeup look of green and gold. The vibrant orange backdrop Josh created seemed to set the photos in front of a golden sunset. So let's think of it as celebrating St. Patrick's Day at sunset. (My mug of green beer is behind the camera.)

To accentuate the makeup and a St. Patty's party after dark, I wore this hunter green tank top from Express, ready-to-party faux leather pants, a leopard clutch and shiny gold accessories, including these awesome pumps.

What do you think of my festive, Irish-inspired look?

If you're looking for an amazing makeup artist who has mastered making a gal look flawless in looks ranging from colorful, club-ready eye shadow and ghastly Halloween makeup to a simply more beautiful you, perfect for your wedding day - Kristina's your girl. Check her out on Facebook, email her at MisfitBeautyMB@gmail.com or make an appointment with her by calling Reve Salon & Spa at (419) 885-1140.

If you're a fan of vibrant urban landscape photography or looking for an experienced event or up-and-coming portrait photographer with a unique approach, look up Josh's Ball Multimedia on Facebook or his website or call (419) 276-2255. I particularly like his commitment to versatility as he refuses to be complacent in any single style or technique.

And if you book them together, you're sure to have a *ball* with dynamite results. Don't forget the green beer!
