A few weeks ago Marcus and I went back to the Valhalla estate in Howard County Maryland to photograph the nuptials of Chrissy and Matt. We had so much fun spending time with them for their engagement session earlier this year that we just knew that their wedding would also be a hoot and they did not disappoint.
We met Chrissy at the Jolie tete spa where she was getting prepared for her big day. It’s funny because when I walked in I was immediately taken back to my childhood. At one point my grandmother had owned three hair salons in Jamaica and I remembered running around them when I was younger and I have not been inside of a Salon since then. I would visit Jamaica twice a year for a week or two every year until I was a teenager and I would help my grandmother and the other stylists with whatever needed to be done. I also remember the wonderful tips that I would receive and that I would usually come back to the US with over a hundred dollars for a weeks worth of work . A fellow blogger recently mentioned that he was amazed at how much there was to photograph inside one of these spas and I told him that I felt the same way. From the art on the walls to the numerous colors of nail polish aligned on the tables to even the folded towels. Below are some of the photographs taken that morning at the salon prior to the wedding. And I have to give props to the young woman that did Chrissy’s make up that day. Earlier that morning she had an accident in which her car door slammed into her hand and I believe she was going to the doctors office after she finished doing Chrissy’s makeup. Now that is dedication. We also want to say thanks to the nice folks at Jolie tete for letting us take these photographs!
