Imagine walking down the isle arm in arm with your dad. When he gives you away, you slip him a little note. He watches from the first row as his little girl gets married to the man of her dreams. Mid way through the ceremony he remembers you gave him something. He looks down, opens it, and a tear rolls down his cheek. It is a letter from you along with a beautiful portrait of you in your splendid gown.
WOW, what an impactful gift.

Bridal sessions typically cost between $400 and $1,500. Now you can get yours at no cost! Join me at my Charity Bridal Shootout and get photographed in your gown by up to 4 photographers. Flowers and full hair and makeup will be provided.
There will be a silent auction with 100% of our money going to LETMESAIL, an organization in Santa Clarita dedicated to enriching the lives of the disabled through social and educational events. These people are about the same age as most engaged ladies, but lead a very different life. They have movie nights, go on camping trips, get job training, and are extremely happy people however are physically and mentally disabled and need full time care. LETMESAIL helps the entire family of the disabled individual by providing respite for them. My goal is to raise awareness and monies for this cause. The auction will have items ranging from a wedding gown from Cruz’s Bridal, wedding day hair and makeup from Betsy diFrancesca and Dedra Whitt, a Metallic Canvas Surface Artists Print from Jen O’Sullivan, a locally grown, organic, eco friendly Bridal Bouquet and Groom’s Boutonniere from Wisteria Lane Flower Shop, Engagement and Family Portrait Sessions from several of the photographers, plus other wonderful items that you will have access to at a fraction of the actual cost. This is a real opportunity for you to get beautiful photography and save huge on some of your wedding day needs.
Please let me know asap if you want in on this event! You will need your own dress and we will make sure it is handled with the utmost respect!
