ShutterBrugs Photography meets WeddingGirl.ca | at Valvano Salon Spa!

If you’re from the Niagara region, you’ve likely driven by the beautiful castle-like building on Welland Avenue – the one usually showcasing some super couture promo images of the amazing work their team does at transforming ordinary into style. Valvano Salon Spa is a full service salon and day spa run by a team of expert stylists and estheticians, and their work speaks for itself!

Tony, David, Julia, April, and Kayla were the stylists behind creating our most recent WeddingGirl.ca promo shoot look, and Mandie from ShutterBrugs was there to capture it all!

So all of this hard work was put in to prepare for a stylish new promotional photoshoot with the fabulously talented Rick Denham…. and here’s a sneak peek of what he captured! (stay tuned for the full promo shoot blog tomorrow!)

ShutterBrugs Photography | So French. So Chic. “Fash The Dress” photoshoot

{ who: Mandie Charlton }

I recently had the pleasure of being introduced to the amazing Mandie from Shutterbrugs Photography and fell completely in love with her!

When I meet brides for the first time, I’m often told my enthusiasm is contagious… and Mandie is the exact same way! You can’t help but get excited about all-things-photography with this girl in the room!

{ what: Fash The Dress }

While we have seen the latest trend of shooting a  Trash The Dress session after you say “I Do”, allow Mandie to be the first photog to introduce the concept of Fash The Dress to WeddingGirl.ca!

Instead of stomping in puddles and playing in the mud, some brides are now opting to stage a couture portrait session to showcase their style, their man, their new bling, and ofcourse, their fabulous frocks!

{ where: rustic rural }

A wooded rural property, blanketed in the whimsical romance of glistening snow, provided the perfect backdrop for Mandie’s So French. So Chic. creative portraiture session.

A bit of WG love is extended to everyone who helped Mandie make this amazing Fash The Dress shoot possible:

Photography: ShutterBrugs

Hair: Aja from the Cutting Edge in Milton

Flowers: Jessica from Fleurish Design Studio

Hair accessories: Kalee from Frilly Bits

Make-up: Marissa Cummins

So, the reason why I was lucky enough to stumble upon Mandie was because the fabulous Rick Denham and I just took some new WeddingGirl.ca promotional photos together, and Mandie was his sidekick (and our comedic relief!) for the day!

Here’s a quick peek of what’s in store tomorrow c/o ShutterBrugs + WG!
