A few weeks back I asked on Facebook for a volunteer model to spend the day with Marcia Gittens (Marcias Makeup) and myself trying out a few different looks. It was to give both Marcia and myself the opportunity to try some things out without the pressure of time. Laura from The Songbirds was kind enough to volunteer which was very much appreciated.
The original plan was to start out in the studio and then head outside for some shots but once again the lovely Scottish weather put paid to that plan. Pretty much most of the shoot was in the studio although we did venture out for 20 minutes and found a deserted tunnel in which to photograph a freezing Laura in.
I’ve worked with Marcia before and it was a pleasure to work with such a talented makeup artist once again. If you are getting married and need a top quality makeup artist then you should really consider Marcia. Her work is top class.
Usually it takes a good 20-30 minutes before someone starts to loosen up in front of the camera and just be themselves but Laura was totally comfortable right from the word go which was fantastic. If you’re looking for wedding singers then The Songbirds should be right at the top of your list.
Many thanks to Laura and Marcia for putting up with me for a whole day. I feel your pain
Here are a few shots.
