I’ve worked with the incredibly talented GiGi Bon on her advertising photos for a few years now, and it’s always a pleasure. This year was no exception. GiGi brought a fantastic collection of this year’s Pronovias dresses and Westin La Paloma provided us with room to play in (and a grand piano!). You might recognize a few of these shots as part of her current ad campaign, plus a few of my favorite outtakes. Thank you to our lovely model, Victoria Hudson, with the Agency Arizona.

I’m out the door in a few minutes to start setting up for a day-long advertising shoot with my good friend Guillian Bon, of the fabulous GiGi’s bridal boutique, and I thought I’d include some great raw images from our last shoot together, which she’s been using for her current campaign.
We made the photos on the store floor, and set up lights and backdrop over the course of a couple of hours. Our model Claire was fantastic, with a megawatt smile and easy laugh, and a team of hair and makeup ninjas from the Red Door Spa made sure she looked perfect, in minutes, over the course three hours and multiple looks. The Pronovias dresses speak for themselves – just gorgeous!
Today’s shoot will be totally different – wistful and romantic if I’m not mistaken…and a model with a very different look. We’re working in and around the Westin La Paloma Resort, who have quite courteously given us the run of the place for the day. I won’t spoil the surprise by posting them on the blog first, so you’ll have to look for GiGi’s ad’s in the upcoming Tucson Bride and Groom!
