Final Rehearsal

Image by Lelo Laourenzo

Cat & James rehearsing Lil' & The General for the last time.
It was a super busy day with six separate mini-rehearsals and lots of scrambling for lighting solutions and last minute costumes and props.

Next week we begin the long haul of shooting the final images, expecting to wrap in early June.

To all those coming along for the ride:

Thank you for getting us this far! Good luck and see you at the other end!

Test Shoot With Stephanie

Image by Lelo Lourenzo

Just wrapped up a test shoot with Stephanie.
We worked on the two scenes in which she is completely alone.
Lelo shot and Alex helped with the lighting. It was a quiet set, for a change.
Michael Calloway, our costume designer for Natashia and Nanna waltzed in with the finished bridal dress just as we were about to begin the bridal makeup scene.
It looked amazing! Thanks, Michael!
