My Little Sister's Senior Prom!

The blog post has been a long time coming but I wanted to take my time writing it because I wanted it to be as perfect as it can be! On April 28th my sister-in-law Elena had her senior prom. I had been waiting for three years for this day to finally come and it was straight out of a dream! From her dress to her grandma's pearls everything was so beautiful and special! 

So a few weeks before the big day I asked her if I could photograph her prom like a mini wedding because I thought it would be so fun and she agreed! So I took the day on as a wedding so I photographed her details, her dress on a wall, and her getting ready! This was soo much more fun than just doing photos of her, Justyn, Lilly, her friends and her family. By doing it this way I got a lot of amazing shots for her and I was also able to practice my detail shots for my weddings!

In this post, I will share and go into detail about every part of the day, and the first part I want to go into is the beautiful details! Her beautiful pearls were actually her grandmothers and were real and very old so they had that beautiful color that vintage pearls have. Her clutch and shoes were from payless...... I know right they look like high-end designer shoes and a high-end clutch! We were very proud of the fact that we found those shoes and clutch on sale and walked out of the store with both for under twenty dollars! I know its crazy right! Oh and we cannot forget about that beautiful dress that is from David's Bridal! It fit like a glove and flattered her so well while still being modest! 

The beautiful details for this prom were amazing with gold shoes, lots of sparkles, and pearls.
I decided to do a paper suite like you would for a wedding. This beautiful red dress from Davids Bridal was the perfect touch.

I also took a few photos of the getting read process because I wanted to show you the amazing processes of Caitlyn Richey! She is just an amaxing hair and makeup artist!

Hair and makeup by Caitlyn Richey she did an amazing job getting Elena ready.
The beautiful braided hairstyle that Elena went with was a perfect complement to her and the dress.

Before we got pictures with Elena with her handsome boyfriend I wanted to get some of just her and she killed it! I remember when she was so uncomfortable in front of the camera and it was difficult to get some images where she looked truly happy but now she is a total model and a natural in front of the camera! These beautiful images say it all!

This red dress stood out beautifully against the yellow roses.

This red beauty is having the time of her life being the silly girl she is.
The ruffles running down the back of her dress and inter her train are absolutely beautiful.
The beautiful details that pulled it all together are her grandmothers perl necklace, her mothers pearl bracelet, and her beautiful nails done at Queen Bee Salon

Now lets get on to the CUTEST couple photos ever! Elena and Justyn have been together for two and a half years and they are such a strong couple in the Lord and in their morals. These photos were so beautiful and I had been dreaming of them for moths before this day even came! His reaction when he first saw her in the dress was the most amazing part of the day and I couldn't stop smiling. All of these photos were so beautiful because they are so in love and you can see it in their eyes!

Every year we do a first look with Elena and her boyfriend and his reaction continually gets better.
His reaction was priceless and his best friend did an awesome job picking out the beautiful corsage.
