Christine & Jon - E Pili Mau Na

on Monday, May 31, 2010

We start the day with the girls at Celebrity Hair Salon: The make up is done in Christine's 20th floor Royal Suite at The Westin Hotel:
Carla is taking special care of the bride:
The dress is safe indoors:
My first ceremony inside the McDougall United Church:
Julianne Cragg made sure everything looked perfect for such an event: Now, this is how a happy newlywed couple looks like:
A while ago I've been location scouting for 2 hours with Christine and Jon for the portrait session, but it was snowing heavily last Saturday (yes, that was May 29), so we couldn't use any of that:
We stayed inside for 3 hours:
It may sound strange coming from a wedding photographer, but I don't get to work very often with brides with veils:
So please bear with me for a while:
Almost forgot about Jon:
I really like the guest sign in book:
The cake from Jam on Your Face, too:
It's probably the most beautiful I've drooled on so far:
And this is as much candy as I've seen in my first 30 years of life put together:
Sweet love:
Chris - the MC - came up with a popular game:
There were unexpecting victims:
A thoughtful gift from Mark, the bride's brother:
The first dance:
Camera magic:
A hint of bhangra:
Evacuate the dance floor:
E pili mau na - best wishes - Christine and Jon! You must be in Hawaii by now. I can't believe you forgot your photographer in the snow! Enjoy your honey moon!

ERKI Moeshow 2010


On Saturday I attended ERKI moeshow, fashion show I've been talking about all the time. I ended up being a model for Kristi Pedanik collection "Aafrika valge" (African White). I'm trying to show you bit of life at backstage, ... but I wish I had taken more photos of other collections and people.

So for me the day started at 10am with getting my hair done. I had a huge bun made of fake hair on top of my head. It took lot of time to get all those hair pins and all that hairspray out of my hair. Okay, it wasn't that bad but I can't imagine going through this regularly like real models do.

And for make-up we were having light eyebrows and orange lips.

On our feet and arms we had white tribal paintings.

It was a silent show, so all the sound was coming from headphones. Both - audience and models were wearing headphones. Well, my headphones dropped out during walking on runway - it was really weird to walk in total quietness and I didn't get a right feeling without the music

Little bit about Kristi's collection African White. Everything isn't black, Africa is white. As name says everything was white but with few orange accents. As jewelry we wore metres of white cables, wires and even metal forks.

Check these pieces from Heli Haav's and Ingrid Paat's collection "Groovy Pool". All beads are handsewn, crazy!

and shoes, shoes, shoes and more shoes!

I was bit sad I couldn't see the show but you can't have many good things at once, right? Anyways I'm happy that this kind of shows take place in Estonia;)
