V – Bridal Boudoir // Jasemine Denise Photography

One of my models and good friends, V got married recently. The ceremony was small, intimate and beautiful. Before the event, V, a few amazing Queens and myself all got together to celebrate with a sleepover. The next morning, as she was getting ready, V and I shot a bridal boudoir shoot.

V // Bridal Boudoir
Makeup by: Gabbie Johnson

V and I started shooting together around the time she met Ari, her now husband. She told me in the few moments between our shoot that she just knew that was the man she was going to marry. You’ve seen Ari and V here before. They did that super cute boudoir shoot together and everyone simply fell in love with them. Now they’re married forever and I still haven’t stopped squealing.

Picture this.
It’s the morning of V’s wedding. Three girls are buzzing with excitement around her, while I’m chasing them in with the camera. We’re in the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Chicago and truth be told, V is a bit nervous. She’s not nervous about getting married. She knew that was happening. She’s nervous because she wants this to go perfect. I’m a little nervous. I chew on my lip as I step forward, camera clenched in my fingers as I say.. “Hey, Vee. You wanna take your bridal boudoir photos?”

She looks at me then and my heart stops a little. To my surprise, she smiles and says, “Yassss!” before waving her hands back and forth. Gabbie had just done her makeup, her veil is hanging loosely off of her gorgeous fresh buzz and she’s positively glowing.

I’m glad she said yes. I want to document every moment of this.

V is wearing lingerie from What Katie Didand had nothing but kind words to say about how well her lingerie fit her.

Mini Session Monday: Queen Of Hearts – Nina

I know, I know! Halloween is over but I couldn’t resist showing you off this amazing Queen Of Hearts look collaborated by Chicago model Nina and makeup artist Gabbie Johnson. Both Queens are amazingly talented and I feel like you’d be missing out if you weren’t given the opportunity to see what they cooked up this Halloween!

Queen Of Hearts // Nina
Makeup by Gabbie Johnson

I couldn’t stand the person inside me,
I turned all the mirrors around..

I‘m bigger than my body.
I’m colder than this home.
I’m meaner than my demons,
I’m bigger than these bones. 

And the kids cried out;
“Please stop you’re scaring me.”
I can’t help this awful energy.
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me.
Who is in control?

I’ve had the blessing of knowing Gabbie and Raymond personally. They have that type of relationship that I’ve always felt was one to look up to. They’ve got a little bit of everything. Playfulness, humor, love, support, and a pinch of tough love. Over the years, I’ve watched them evolve each other and themselves.

The thing that I really love about Gabbie and Raymond is that neither of them assumed the ‘house spouse’ role. They both go to work, they both take each other on romantic dates and buy gifts, they both look out each other.  As they move on to the next phase of their life together, they will be doing so as a team. A unit and union created out of pure love and devotion to each other’s happiness.

I couldn’t be more proud of them. Seriously.

This time next year, Gabbie and Raymond will be married. Will you?

Super Orange Sunday // Noodlez

Happy Super Orange Sunday! If you haven’t heard of the amazing company Super Orange, based out of Portland Oregon, you’re missing out! If you haven’t checked out Noodlez and her amazing shoots here at JDP, you’re missing out twice. Today I’m here to put you in the know!

About Noodlez

It’s almost painful how beautiful Noodlez is. While she’s done some of the darkest, craziest shoots yet to be released here at JDP, there’s a side to her that is supremely sweet. So sweet in fact that she became a brand ambassador for Sweet Bitz Apparel shortly after becoming signed with JDP but before that, she was one of the models who were featured in the first Super Orange lookbook!

About Super Orange Co

You’ve seen Super Orange here on the blog before. The super cute apparel has been in a boudoir and on your favorite photographer the moment I announced that we made it into the lookbook. It was a proud day, only coming second best to the day I met the owner of Super Orange himself, Zee. Zee is one amazing guy. Everything he gushes about between the company Instagram and Twitter are tenfold face to face. Good energy. He really makes believe in the brand.

I’ve only ever had one complaint about Super Orange…
The apparel is too cute. TOO CUTE.
This isn’t a joke.

Super Orange differs from other clothing companies because the clothing is printed by the man himself. Every single release is limited and when it’s gone, god it’s gone. The company’s Instagram graciously keeps us eager with timed releases and the getting is always quick. Can you blame them?

What do you think? Was this shoot TOO sweet?

Don’t forget to follow Super Orange Co on Instagram for releases to the shop, and Super Orange Army for all the cute models rocking their gear. Also, follow Noodlez on Facebook and Instagram to see more of her shoots. Lastly, don’t forget to subscribe to the blog to get photoshoots to your inbox the moment they drop!

Till next time
